TobeyMaguireDeniesPoker230.jpgTobey Maguire has filed legal documents saying he did not take part in illegal poker games, though he admits that legal games occurred.

Maguire is being sued by the bankruptcy trustees of a convicted felon who Maguire supposedly won money from -- the trustees want their more than $300,000 back.

Maguire argues that the games were not "controlled games," which would mandate that the host have a license. He admits that he was invited to play, but denies that there was a regular roster of celebs.

Reportedly, the poker games included such A-listers as Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCaprio and thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars were exchanged.
