Default Beard in live poker?

I have a question that will annoy and amuse people, so I just have to post it.

Depending upon how you are perceived when having a beard, your poker game may be slightly more (or less) successful than when you are properly shaved.

Does anyone have any experience telling me whether a beard is good or not???

Any specific type of beard that anyone can associate with live poker success???

(See poll, if I managed to get it right....)

A wise person (I forget who) once said to me, "no one has ever won a poker tournament with a full beard." I laughed because it almost seems kinda true.

Didn't Chris Ferguson win WSOP ME some year, when he had a huge beard??

I still had long hair at the time in a ponytail, but with my beard I must have looked just enough like Todd Brunson that I was noticing my opponents acting sort of peculiar, letting me make moves, etc.. I was at that sorry ass excuse of a poker room in the Luxor playing cash, until someone asked me "You aren't Todd Brunson, are you?" "Why, because I'm fat?" I retorted, with a smile. Another guy said "I thought he was Big Sexy from the WWE." We laughed and eventually I made my way over to Mandalay Bay and after playing there vowed never to set foot on that end of the strip again since it sucks balls, beard or not.

that's only because everything these days is won by children too young to grow beards.

Swoop is unable to grow a beard, so what does that say?

I am usually in some state of beardedness. I can't help it.

I have never won a big, big live event.

Clearly it's the beard's fault.
