Former Baywatch star Pam Anderson is adding to the lore or Andy Beal (a.k.a “The Banker” in poker circles) by claiming he lost $40 million to her estranged husband, poker player Rick Salomon.
According to a report by TMZ, Anderson wants her share of the money lost to Salomon by Beal—made famous for his super high stakes poker matches against the likes of Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Ted Forrest, Chip Reese, Jen Harman and others collectively known as “The Corporation” in the book detailing the actual events titled The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King.
The accusations are part of what is proving to be a messy separation between Anderson and Salomon. According to documents reportedly obtained by TMZ, Salomon and Beal played matches in which tens of millions of dollars changed hands over the summer at the Bellagio.
Beal was spotted in Las Vegas earlier this year when he reportedly lost $5 million to Todd Brunson at the Bellaio.
