Can We Wear Headphones?

"I wish I could listen to that new Lady GaGa single. Heard it's a killer!"

After contesting a pot recently with Thorsten Schafer, Justin Bonomo requested a ruling on whether or not players were allowed to wear headphones.

With tablemates Schafer and Gareth Teatum both wearing headphones, Bonomo requested the issue since he too wanted to wear them.

"I know we're in the money, but I just want to check" asked Bonomo to the Tournament Director.

No more then thirty seconds later, and announcement was made to the remaining field that - like every WSOP event - once players reach the money, headphones and electrical devices cannot be used at the table.

For Bonomo and the select few still bopping away to tunes or drowning out table talk will now have to handle the music-less and talk-heavy tables!
