Phil Laak Plays WSOP In Disguise
Phil Laak, one of pokers most interesting personalities decided to play the 2008 WSOP in disguise. He dresses up like an old man and no one knows past the entire 1st day.
Kudos to CardPlayer for a great video interview with Laak where he breakdowns all of the details that went into why he did what he did.
It's an excellent interview, talking about not only the social aspect of undergoing a professional makeup artist that was rushed in a four hour session, compared to how he had to use the 'old man' image against his poker opponents. Excellent interview and a very cool and intriguing thing from Phil Laak, one of poker most outspoken poker personalities.
Here is part 2 of the interview and here is a photo of Phil Laak in Disguise and you can discuss Phil Laak's WSOP 2008 Main Event Disguise here.
