Pamela Anderson Says Ex Won $40m Playing Poker

Pamela Anderson Says Ex Won $40m Playing Poker

Wednesday, 18 March 2015

Rick Salomon, the former partner of Pamela Anderson, is something of a shark at the poker table according to a recent lawsuit.

Both Salomon and Anderson are currently in the midst of a legal battle to separate from each other, and in the latter's divorce bid it's been claimed the former won $40 million playing poker in 2014 report

According to the legal document, Salomon managed to beat fellow amateur and billionaire businessman, Andy Beal, for $40 million and because that forms part of his estate she now wants half.

In addition to claiming Salomon is a high rolling poker pro, Anderson claims that Salomon has isn't a resident of Nevada (where tax isn't paid to the State) and he regularly lived with her in Malibu.

Whether or not the claims are true, it is well known that Beal is willing to play for high stakes against almost anyone and has previously lost more than $20 million in a single weekend. However, whether or not Salomon has enough skills to beat the math whizz for $40 million is unclear.

What is clear, however, is that Salomon isn't short of a bankroll. The son of former Executive Vice President of Warner Bros, Robert Jess Salomon, first found fame after appearing in a sex tape with Paris Hilton, but since then he's made a number of appearance in the poker world and even managed to cash in the 2014 WSOP Big One for One Drop.

After weaving his way past the likes of Scott Seiver and Tobias Reinkemeier, Salomon eventually finished in 4th place to claim $2,800,000. Was he able to parlay this win into a $40 million haul at the cash tables? If Pamela Anderson is to be believed, then yes he did.
