Day 1 of the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic went off Monday, but the real fun started after the chips were bagged and tagged.
As a show of solidarity for fellow poker player Thuy Doan, who is battling cancer and lost her hair through chemotherapy, several players headed over to Phil Ivey’s ridiculously baller villa at Bellagio to get their heads shaved by the man’s personal barber.
Of course, PL.com went along for the ride, as names like Doyle Brunson, Barry Greenstein, Eli Elezra, Joe Sebok and the aforementioned Ivey all got a quick buzz.
The villa is all you could ever imagine, complete with a view of the strip and Bellagio fountains from a yard that features a pool, hot tub and patches of real grass – a rarity here in Las Vegas.
There’s a fully functioning kitchen, fabulous bedrooms and a dining room fit for at least a dozen people.
Plus, there’s a private gym, a private butler and a comfortable living room complete with a wet bar and big screen TV, opening up to the outdoor patio.
Not to mention the barber’s chair in the back.
Top shelf cocktails were were poured, fine vintages uncorked, tasty shrimp quesadillas were served and heads were shaved.
When a group including Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier and Peter “Apathy” Jetten showed up, they decided to flip for who would get buzzed.
In the end, although it took a little extra coaxing to convince ElkY, they all did the deed and PL.com has the pics to prove it.
A total of 19 players shorn the locks and Fox Sports Net's Poker2Nite was on the scene filming it all, so you can also look for that later this month.
