World Series of Beards? Hipster Style Invades World Series of Poker

Las Vegas is pretty far from Brooklyn but you wouldn’t know it from taking a quick trip around the tournament floor of the 2015 World Series of Poker.

A plaid platoon of bearded hipster mountain men has taken over the Rio All-Suite Hotel in Las Vegas.

Many of these pros are millionaires but you wouldn’t know it from their rugged beards and sometimes unkempt hair. All that’s missing is a vintage splitting axe slung over their shoulder.

Case in point: Matthew Ashton, Andrew Lichtenberger and Steve O’Dwyer have nearly $20 million in combined lifetime live tournament winnings but wouldn’t look out of place in a hotel in Thailand.

It’s pretty much the polar opposite of the baller lifestyle image that poker players tried to cultivate in the mid-2000s.

You gotta hand it to poker players, when they do something they give it 100%.

Here’s a photo gallery of the best beards straight from the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event. FYI: This is a $10,000 buy-in poker tournament:

A lot of these are just beards.
