It must make showering quite a production.
Phil Ivey is one of the worst offenders. One time we witnessed Phil Ivey get a massage for the entire day from start to finish.
This isn't such a big deal, but the girl was massaging his knee cap. Not his calves, not his thighs; just the knee cap.
At two dollars a minute, we estimate that this knee cap treatment cost about a thousand bucks - plus tip.
We spoke to a masseuse and asked her what the smallest and largest tip she ever got was. The smallest was a not so surprising $0 USD. The largest was $1,000 for a full day massage.
For the massage aficionado like John Juanda, Chau Giang, and Roland de Wolfe, the massage bill for the entire series can stretch into the tens of thousands.
As we type this Chau Giang is about $240 into a massage from a man with very burly forearms and let's just say he's loving it!
