Back in 2005 and 2006, you could always count on some dudes at the WSOP Main Event to bust out the funny outfits (the Elmo Head Guy was our personal favorite).
Along with barkers and Barry Paskins, most of the “hey look at me!” outfits went away.
On Day 1A, we’re seeing a return of the costume clan though. We’ll see if the trend keeps up through the weekend.
In related news, heading into the final level of the day, chip leaders include Chris MacFarland, Johnny Lodden, Raymond Rahme, and Josh Brikis.
The departed included Greg Raymer, Isaac Haxton, Jerry Yang…and Vinny Vinh! We missed him. Damn it.
We’ll keep adding to the gallery as we get more pics. The Snowhite one is “courtesy” of @ESPN_Poker’s Twitter.
