A plastic surgeon is offering card players the chance to have a perfect poker face with his new Botox technique, which he calls “Pokertox.”
New York doctor Jack Berdy has launched the idea of using Botox to allow people to gain an advantage in the game by hiding their emotions.
“Very few people can maintain a real poker face," Dr. Berdy said. “They have some tells, some expression that gives away that they have a good hand or a bad hand to an opponent.”
So, for $600, Dr. Berdy hits them with doses of Botox in strategic places on their face to keep those expressions numb.
