World Series Of Halloween? See 18 Crazy, Colorful Costumes Tricking for WSOP Treats

It was Oct. 31 in Las Vegas, and for the first time, the World Series Of Poker held bracelet events on Halloween. You can bet I brought my camera.

Jack Sparrow reminds the table that not all treasure is silver and gold, mate, as he raises preflop in the WSOP tag team event.

The $1,000 tag team event getting underway was probably the best place to find tournament players donning costumes. No surprise as this event, introduced in 2016, is always a ton of fun. The $1,000 seniors event was also getting cards in the air, but these players didn’t get into the Halloween spirit so much. Still, Sunday was a WSOP day unlike any other — with plenty of pros joining the fun, and some chatting about this spectacle being reason enough to keep the Series in the fall.
