Over the weekend, while the rest of you were out drinking and trying to impress that girl you like with your $10/hr college job, the REAL power players were hanging out in LA with the local billionaires.
According to sources, there was an illegal, underground poker game held at an unidentified person’s home this weekend in Los Angeles, California. In attendance were some prominent local businessmen, a couple of celebrities, and a few of the LA billionaires that live in the city.
Apparently, this is sort of a regular occurrence within the high stakes gambling crowd of LA. The events that went down are like something out of a movie.
According to the Hollywood Reporter:
[The bets of Hollywood actors] paled beside those of some really high-stakes gamblers, according to a regular on the gambling circuit. In one game alone, attended by an L.A.-based investor, the pot rose to $100 million. “Everyone was out of the game except the billionaires,” says the insider.
Just imagine, sitting there gambling for an Airbus A320, or the annual expenditure for the country of Palau. Now that’s money. If I’m gambling for a 180 seat plane, you best believe I’ve got the poker face of the century.
Somehow, this mystery winner was able to a) win $100,000,000 dollars, no small feat in itself, and then b) was able to leave the room alive, which is a more impressive feat in my opinion, and finally c) this person was able to Breaking-Bad-style launder this money away. I need to get in touch with this guys accountant..
