Someone Just Paid €110,000 To Play Poker With Edward Norton, Listen To Him Talk About 'Rounders'

Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Held Auction That Included Private Poker Game


Who knows if there will ever be a sequel to Rounders, but Edward Norton, along with Jonah Hill, will soon be sitting down at a poker table as part of an auction held in France on Wednesday by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

According to a report from Bloomberg, DiCaprio held the auction that included high-end artwork and a chance to play in a private card game with Norton and Hill, along with “top poker professionals.”

“You’ll receive coaching from one of the best poker players in the world, and hear stories over dinner about how the movie [Rounders] that launched the international poker craze was made,” the website for the auction stated. It’s been nearly 20 years since the movie came out.

According to the website, there was one bid. It was for €110,000.

The site didn’t say where the game would be held.

The last two auctions by the DiCaprio Foundation raised $25 million and $40 million, respectively.
