A new rule was recently inducted into the 2010 World Series of Poker Official Tournament Rules. The new rule says that it's not okay to have a bad smell while taking part in any of the WSOP events. If someone doesn't take care of their hygiene, the tournament staff has the right to tell the player about his bad hygiene, and also take him off the table until the problem has been taken care of.


2010 World Series of Poker Official Tournament Rules: 37 B

All participants are entitled to expect civility and courtesy from one another at every Tournament table and throughout the
Tournament area. Any individual who encounters behavior that is not civil or courteous -- or is abusive in any way -- is encouraged
to immediately contact a Tournament official. This shall include, but is not limited to, any player whose personal hygiene has become disruptive to the other players seated at their table. The determination as to whether an individual's personal hygiene is disruptive to other players shall be determined by the Tournament Staff which may, in its discretion, implement sanctions upon any such player who refuses to remedy the situation in a manner satisfactory to Rio.
