The colorful ring announcer, Bruce Buffer, has been building some visibility in the poker world.  That’s not surprising considering that Buffer's brother, the "Let's Get Ready To Rumble" ring announcer Michael Buffer, once set up his own online gambling website but quickly backed out of the concept when it became apparent that there could be some legal consequences to doing so.

Bruce Buffer is a poker player now, and a pretty good one at that if this past World Series of Poker is any indication.

Recently, Buffer has been speculating publicly on the net worth of poker players such as Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan.

From AintLuck.com:

Buffer’s most discussed statements were that Ivey’s net worth is approximately $100 Million while Dwan’s worth is $50 Million.  Buffer claims to know these figures as facts and not just speculation.  Why he has decided to take to the airwaves and discuss other people’s finances don’t make much sense as doing so is generally in poor taste. In alternating portions of the interview, he seemed to take great pride in name dropping, claiming to have strong friendships with many of poker’s heavy hitters.  Whether or not this is actually true is unknown although the fact he would even discuss such things has drawn sharp criticism from those who follow the forums.


 
One poster, who echoed the sentiments of many said “I think its possible Ivey is worth 100 million. All of his sponsorships and what not, and net worth includes ur buildings and cars. And most poker players aren’t even close to this obv, we’re just talking about Phil Ivey.”
 
Another poster continued, “Ivey could very easily have 100m, he crushes any game he plays and add in a pretty hefty sponsorship to that. Dwan I very much doubt but who knows what kind of sick live games he’s playing, and the sick degens he can find to give him money. I mean if they can both afford to throw away 1 mil on random props they’ve got to be decently well off.”
 
Whatever the case, Buffer’s comments seem to be in poor taste and has not earned him too many fans.
