A Special Moment in Remembrance of Dr. Jerry Buss
There are times when I’m really proud to be a part of the World Series of Poker.
Tonight was one of those special moments.
Prior to the start of this evening’s Seven-Card Stud championship, a special tribute was held in honor of the late Dr. Jerry Buss, owner of the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers. Seven-Card Stud was Dr. Buss’ favorite poker game and he came close to winning a gold bracelet 22 years ago when this same event was held. He took third place that year.
As a way to remembering Dr. Buss, the World Series of Poker held a seat for him at the start of the tournament. Here’s a photo of Dr. Buss’ chips.
Fittingly, his seat is vacant. That’s because no one can fill the place of our long lost friend, Dr. Jerry Buss. He is missed, but appropriately loved and remembered.
