Embrace your inner Lance Armstrong and cheat to win at extreme sports like…poker.Yes, apparently, you can inject your body with something that might help you win a ragin’ game of Texas Hold ‘Em. That little something has kept housewives emotionless (that and their lexapro) for years–botox.
Aesthetically-focused poker-loving New York doctor, Dr. Jack Beardy, has introduced an injection called Pokertox to his practice. The botox is “designed to enhance a player’s poker face” reports Huffington Post.
“Some people might get a card they like or don’t like and raise their eyebrows,” said Berdy in an interview. “If that’s the common reaction, we can put Botox in certain areas to minimize them.” Or, the Pokertox can be used to simulate a “bluff.”
“We can also put Botox in areas to make it look like the player has a ‘tell’ they really don’t have.” Pokertox only last 3-4 months but that should be enough time to experiment with using the fillers for other uses like lying to your boss about your three hour lunch, getting through a rom-com with your wife, and looking emotionless like your father taught you so many years ago.
