Benefits Of Wearing A Hoodie When Playing Poker


Poker is a mentally and physically demanding game which requires intense focus and concentration from players. Whether keeping track of the chips, cards, and opponents or spending long hours on the table, playing poker can exhaust you.

This results in poker players wearing something comfortable on the table and they often opt to don hoodies. Let’s look at why so many poker players wear hoodies and their benefits in this article.

Hoodies Help Conceal Physical Tells

It is essential to keep a ‘poker face’, as you don’t want to give any clues to your opponents regarding what cards you hold. Many poker players often try to read the game of their opponents, aiming to know their intentions. Even a slight reaction from a player is enough to tell if he/ she has a weak or strong hand.

While many put a strong ‘poker face’, an intelligent player can read a tell from the slightest of openings. Thus, poker players cover themselves by wearing hoodies to prevent the human body from giving any signs away.  It’s a decent strategy for new players who take some time to learn the art of not giving any tells. Therefore, wearing a hoodie to conceal some physical signs is helpful for poker players.

Wearing Hoodies to Intimidate

Dressing in a certain way to fool the opponent is a strategy implied by poker players, and hoodies are worn for the same. While many see it as an amateur move, some players often sit on the poker tables to intimidate opponents. 

A hoodie paired with dark shades can look intimidating if someone is staring at you, with many pros believing this strategy works against recreational players. Some players interpret intimidating stares as a sign of a weak hand from their opponents. This comes from the ideology that intimidates players to give a stare rather than continue betting and growing their pot.

Also, there’s something quite discomforting about seeing someone in a dark-coloured hoodie with the hood pulled over their face. It is a great way to pressure them and have your opponent commit to a decision quickly and in haste.

Wearing Hoodies for Comfort

Everyone knows how comfortable hoodies are! They’re soft and hug your skin nicely, which gives players some much-needed comfort to help their nerves as the game is very demanding.

Also, many casinos and poker rooms have air conditioning running 24×7, making the environment quite chilled. So players wear a hoodie to avoid being too cold during a game and feel warm, relaxed, and focused when grinding it out for hours.
