PHOTOS: WPT Holds No Limit Hold ‘Em Tournament In Honor Of Dr. Buss

It is well known that the late, great Dr. Jerry Buss was an avid poker player who frequented tournaments on the World Poker Tour. The World Series of Poker even dedicated a spot to Dr. Buss for its Main Event Tournament and invited Laker star Kobe Bryant to play in Buss’ place.
