Stacks of cash. Chips piled high. Fresh felt. Fiji water for everyone. Beards.
You can’t walk two feet at the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl without running into at least one of those items.
The cash and chips are kind of a given but the sheer amount of massive beards is somewhat surprising for a collection of poker players who have collectively won tens of millions of dollars.
Two of the biggest names in the game — Daniel Negreanu and Jason Mercier — have beards that would be more fitting in a lumberjack camp than a five-star casino.
They aren’t the only ones as Dominik Nitsche, Stephen Chidwick, Phil Galfond and David Peters are also among the pros rocking at least a bit of facial hair. Extra points to Igor Kurganov for the man bun.
The kicker? The Super High Roller Bowl is sponsored by Dollar Shave Club. Time to bust out those razors guys.
Or at the very least the person who wins this thing will get $5,000,000, which should be more than enough for a shave at the swankiest old-school barbershop in Las Vegas.
