Bruce Buffer wins Larry Flynt's Grand Slam of Poker

by Johnny Firecloud | source:

Bruce Buffer may be best known for being the signature voice behind “We are LIVE!” and “It is TIME!” in the UFC, but with his own gambling lounge and a new tournament win he's quickly earning a reputation as a poker mogul.

Earlier this month, Buffer took the ambitious step of opening the Bruce Buffer High-Stakes poker lounge at the Luxor Casino in Las Vegas. Themed with Bruce Buffer’s official logo, the room has been designated to host several special UFC events, from high-stakes tournaments to UFC fighter autograph signings.

Furthering his domination of the game, Buffer took home first place and $75,000 on Tuesday in the main event of Larry Flynt’s Grand Slam of Poker at the Hustler Casino in Los Angeles, CA.

 A Vegas poker regular, Buffer's no stranger to success at the tables. He entered the prestigious 2010 World Series of Poker and finished in the money at the main event.

Looks like maybe the Poker After Dark results are still a mystery:

Bruce had pocket aces and lost to a lucky bastard with quad 8s. Nothing you can do about that(except for shuffle the deck better)
