Gavin Smith Wins Tattoo Bet over Joe Sebok and Jeff Madsen
March 4, 2010
When you play poker for a living, it might just become routine at one point, exactly like other types of work. So it’s perfectly understandable if the pros spice it up with side bets that involve something more than money, something weightier, like pride and dignity. This is exactly what Joe Sebok, Gavin Smith, and Jeff Madsen did when they made a bet on who would exit the WPT LA Poker Classic First. The losers would have the faces of the others tattooed on his body. If that isn’t humiliating, then I don’t know what is.
Lose a Bet, Get a Tattoo
There really is nothing worse than a permanent reminder of a loss. It’s absolutely humiliating for a guy to have the face of another guy tattooed on his body. However, some people simply can’t avoid making a bet like this when they’re under the influence of alcohol. Sure, at the heat of the moment, it’s fun, it’s exhilarating, and the sheer riskiness of it makes one feel oddly like he’s invulnerable. Afterwards, though, there is only regret – deep-seated and embarrassingly hard to admit. It’s also what Joe Sebok has a surplus of now that he has to make good his promise and have Jeff Madsen’s and Gavin Smith’s face tattooed on his body. He was the first one who was eliminated from the WPT LA Poker Classic, which makes him the biggest loser in the bet since there’s no longer any chance of having his own face tattooed on the bodies of the other two. Jeff Madsen, on the other hand, is caught somewhere between losing and winning.

He was the second one to make an exit, and will there have to get Gavin Smith’s face tattooed on his body. The two of them will have no choice but to comply with the terms of the bet, as the alternative is simply unthinkable. Apparently, the only way to wiggle their way out of the bet is to pay their way out, and this is simply something that Sebok’s pride will not allow. Sebok claims that ‘paying’ them is even worse than actually having their faces tattooed on his body. He also said that he will ‘never’ drink alcohol with either Smith or Madsen, whom he affectionately dubbed ‘clowns’, again. But then, we all know what it really means when ‘alcohol’ and ‘never’ are placed in the same sentence.
Clean and Smooth Skin
Gavin Smith is the only one who will walk away from this incident with his pride and dignity intact. He did not win the WPT tournament per se, but he did outlast the other two, and this is enough to guarantee that he can keep his skin clean and smooth and free from any humiliating tattoos.
