World Series of Poker Dealer Applauded for Calling Out Player’s Poor Hygiene11 months ago
One of the dealers working at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas has been applauded on Twitter for speaking up about the poor hygiene of a player at his table. During the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event the young man pulled out a full sized bottle of cologne and politely requested that the gentleman in question put some on.
Chip Jett tweeted that the player was shocked at the dealer’s brass neck to publicly shame him in this way. Judging by the replies though, this didn’t come a day too soon according to many different player’s experiences.
Poor hygiene during live poker sessions is as old as the game itself. Usually though, people are too polite to cause the offender any embarrassment.
One player recounted how he made the floor’s day by making a joke out of such an incident.
“I once raised a bar of soap I took from the room. Told the guy I knew he couldn’t call..... floor had a few “stern” words towards me. Few hours later, floor pulled me aside cracking up with some comps for me.”
It doesn’t take much effort to turn up to a live grind smelling half decent, does it?
