LA Lakers owner and poker aficionado, Jerry Buss, has died at the age of 80 after a long battle with cancer.
While the world at large knew him as the man who carried the Lakers to 10 N.B.A. titles since he bought them in 1979, the poker community knew him as a high stakes poker regular.Having appeared numerous times on the cash game show, Buss was also a veteran of the WSOP and, according to WSOP director Seth Palansky, he’d played the event for the past 25 years.To all that met or played against him he was a true gentleman, so much so that the WSOP are now considering naming one of the marquee events after him. The story broke soon after Buss’ death and was later confirmed by PokerListings and Palansky.“At the right time we'd like to reach out to his family and see if they support an idea of renaming one of our championship events after him and awarding the victor a perpetual trophy in Dr. Buss' honour.”Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
