New Look for Phil Ivey at WSOP?

As the world’s best all-around poker player, everything that Phil Ivey does is closely watched by the poker community.

Whether its starting a new training site to teach the world to play better poker, winning millions playing Punto Banco while in the company of a mysterious Asian young lady only to be accused of cheating by Crockfords Casino, or winning yet another WSOP bracelet, poker players want to know about it.

So it comes as no surprise that a recent tweet by Ivey in which he contemplates growing a beard for the upcoming 44th annual WSOP at the Rio in Las Vegas also has poker players talking. The typically clean-shaven 37-year-old would certainly draw even more attention to himself while attempting to pick up some ground on Phil Hellmuth in the WSOP bracelet chase.

Take a look at the photo accompanying this article compliments of Jeff Lange. What do you think? Is that a good look for Ivey?
