How many times has a barely raised eyebrow or an ever-so-slight smile ruined your chances to successfully go “all in” during a game of Texas Hold 'em? Too many times, is Outliers
Well, throw away the mirrored sunglasses and the ugly baseball cap. The solution to that problem can apparently be found within the walls of a New York Botox clinic now marketing its services for card players under the name PokerTox.
It's just what it sounds like, according to a news release from the clinic, called SmoothMed. A physician injects Botox and sometimes filler into your face with the goal of reducing the movement of your muscles and hiding or accentuating your tells—those tiny tics and movements that can give away your true thoughts about your poker hand.
“After a few days, you will begin to notice a relaxed, rested appearance in a very natural way that without effort can be maintained at the pinnacle of excitement or the trough of disappointment as the cards may dictate,” according to the release.
If you could see Outliers' expression right now, you would know we haven't taken advantage of the treatment.
