Badih Bounahra to play his next major tournament in his birth suit. Badih, or Bob, is known for wearing sunglasses, baseball hats and occasionally an iPod as a form of blocking and hinting misdirection. But now he is taking things to a whole new level. “We’ve never had a player perform in the nude before,” said professional dealer Graham Stotch. “But as far as I can tell it’s legal.”
Bounahra claims his naked body will be “oiled and lathered” in order to use natural glistening light against opponents and maximum comfort. He is sponsored by United Airlines and IZOD; he will don a cap for the airline and is still undecided for the IZOD clothing, though no one asked in the first place.
The Poker League is thoroughly interested to see the repercussions of such a “sexy, goddamn event.”
