Pokertox: Botox For Gambler's Poker Face

Tags: botox, Jack Berdy, live poker, poker face, pokertox, tells.
Posted on 26 November 2012 by "T".

It's essential in live poker not to give away any tells. Hats, caps, hoodies and sunglasses are items that many poker players use to prevent their opponents from seeing facial expressions. However, there might not be any need for these stuff in the future...

Jack Berdy, a doctor from New York, has just introduced "Pokertox," a program of Botox and facial fillers designed to help poker players hide any sign of facial emotion.

"Some people might get a card they like or don't like and raise their eyebrows," Berdy told The Huffington Post. "If that's the common reaction, we can put Botox in certain areas to minimise them."

The new method can also be used to bluff...

"We can also put Botox in areas to make it look like the player has a 'tell' they really don't have," he said.

Some entrepreneurs find business opportunities in the most uncommon places! I don’t think this is going to work out as a future investment, I am sure I wouldn’t go for buying any stocks from this company. But I’m also sure there must exist a market study behind this new business, which may mean they found many poker players who were available to use this product if it was available on the market. But, sincerely, it’s something that is still beyond my expectations of progress in the strategies used in the game.

Pokerface ala Hollywood. Aww crap!

Just wear some of those Guy Fawkes masks at the table. They will do the trick much cheaper. With this botox thing, the only one making a profit wil be the doc.

LOL...Just been wondering whether any online players will see this as an option for them? THe way some people play online you never know! Maybe there is a niche in the market to be exploited? LOL

As i previosly said i frankly do not believe that a seriuos poker player will ever do this kind of treatment!

As for online poker players there is really no brains to do such a thing so this is definately a dead market...

This would be such a stupid PR thing.
I found it really funny when Phil Laak dressed up like an old man in the Main event some years ago-which was later permitted-but this botox thing goes too far

anyways would love to see Gus hansen with a Botox face Blink
