Botox: New wrinkle for poker players

(Huffington Post) A doctor of aesthetic medicine in New York is taking a gamble that poker players are going to be the next big growth market for botox.

Dr. Jack Berdy has just introduced “Pokertox,” a program of Botox and facial fillers designed to enhance a player’s “poker face,” their ability to hide any sign of facial emotion that might tip off other card players on whether they have a good or bad hand.

The process requires Berdy to consult with players about what they believe their “tells” are — the unconscious signals they give off to other players.
