Just caught this on the Associated Press wire and thought you all might get a kick out of it:
LAS VEGAS – Lakers owner Jerry Buss entered a $10,000 7-card stud tournament in Las Vegas on Saturday, the day before his team played the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the NBA finals.
The three-day tournament was part of the World Series of Poker being played at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Buss was eliminated on the first day.
Buss, known to be an avid poker player who enters tournaments and plays high stakes cash games, won about $33,000 to finish third in a 7-card stud tournament at the 1991 World Series of Poker.
