laakPoker Listings: Jordan Farmar is three years into his career as a guard for the Los Angeles Lakers but he’s the ultimate rookie at the poker table.

Nonetheless, just weeks removed from winning an NBA championship with the Lakers, Farmar is finding success at the 2009 WSOP Main Event.

“I’ve never played online,” he said. “I played one day before I came here. The day before I flew out to Vegas I went to the casino in L.A. and played just so I knew what was going on at the table.”

“I got lucky early and now I’m starting to get the hang of it.”

Farmar is faring pretty well, considering there aren’t too many players in the field with the lack of experience he’s working with.

The Lakers guard has been a popular player in the Amazon Room, drawing lots of attention from the ESPN camera crew and entertaining everyone in the vicinity.

“I don’t know how to play!” said Farmar during a hand before the break, drawing laughs from everyone at the table.

    Farmar better win some money he’s going to need it. Flipping burgers after next year will be a big pay cut. Maybe he can work at Luke’s restraunt with sasha. Sasha already has the hairnet…
