How are glasses made from plastic?
PokerStars features UV400 polarized lenses and comes alongside a microfiber cleaning cloth, plastic pouch, and PU leather case. The shades as well as the accompaniments of these uber cool glasses are made from recycled cards. To be precise, the gloss black plastic sunglasses are entirely made with processed playing cards.
Players like Kunal Patni, Kanchan Sharma, Vaibhav Temani, and hundreds of others are grinders who are often spotted wearing glasses while grinding in live tournaments. We bet these players would give a shot to such glasses.
But do you know why poker players wear sunglasses? Is it only a fashion statement, or is there more to this practice?
The main reason why poker players wear sunglasses is to conceal their eyes from the players on the table. Eyes can convey more than words ever can! Emotions can easily be read from eye movements, and dropping the slightest hint can affect a poker player’s game. Your eyes could twitch, your eyelids could open a little too much, your pupils could dilate, or anything in that fashion could happen when you are on the poker table. Sunglasses help conceal a player’s game strategy and prevent anyone from reading emotions.
If you are a player who loves to fascinate with upcoming trends and loves sunglasses then, this is a purchase you should make. Moreover, you would be contributing to reducing wastage, make these shades yours today.
