There’s a number of ways you can distinguish yourself sartorially at the poker tables. Some people plump for a dashing suit, others might take more drastic action and dress up as a bunny rabbit (we’ve seen it before honestly.)
Sitting somewhere between these two extremes, players might choose a classic hat to add a little style to their appearance. It can be tilted down to cast their face in shadow should they wish to appear menacing in a pot, or simply tilted at a rakish angle to convey a general rogue-ish style.
MPNPT regular Phil Huxley is one such hat-o-phile, his omnipresent fedora marking him out from the bulk of players. He does face competition from tablemate Victor Pabst, who also has a striking piece of headwear himself.
We’ll be following any pots played out between these two closely in a battle which is already being dubbed “hat-mageddon” by many fans. *
