Buss Goes Way of Lakers, Gets Swept in Pot

• Level 9


We caught the action on seventh street as Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss was involved in a heads-up pot.

Buss: (X)(X) - {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Opponent: (X)(X) - {4-Hearts}{6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

After quickly check-calling bets by his opponent on every street, Jerry Buss called a final bet on seventh street after squeezing his last down card. His opponent showed down {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs} for the eight-high straight and a low hand of A4567.

Buss looked befuddled as he held onto his hand, repeatedly looking at his opponent's holding and then back at his own cards. Eventually, like his basketball team did against the Mavericks earlier this summer, Buss waved the white flag and surrendered the pot.
