Poker players have often proven that you don’t have to wait until Halloween to get dressed up. Whether it’s a lost prop bet, something done to get attention, or Phil Hellmuth being Phil Hellmuth, you’re almost certain to see a player dressed in costume at one major poker event a year. With Halloween around the corner, we look back at some of the best costumes of poker players.
