A Los Angeles Rams running back won over half-a-million dollars playing poker at Caesars Las Vegas.
Ronnie Rivers, 24, won $514,837 playing three-card poker while in town to celebrate his and his mother’s birthday. Local television station KTNV reported that Rivers produced a royal flush between his three cards and the dealer's three cards to secure the “Mega Progressive Jackpot.”
Rivers, an undrafted rookie, signed a one-year, $705k deal last summer but ended up taking home roughly $515,670, per Spotrac. In this instance, one hand of poker was worth an entire NFL season.
