Have Bunny Hat, Will Travel


If you’ve played poker in Rozvadov, North Carolina, Sao Paulo, Las Vegas, Austria, Marrakech or Berlin this year, you might recognize the pink bunny hat of Eyal Bensimhon.

Listed as being from France for the Battle of Malta the well-travelled poker player has clearly put some miles on his poker calendar this year with cashes in all of those places in 2018 alone.

He finished 2nd in the €1,500 No-Limit Hold’em at the WSOPC in Rozvadov just a few weeks ago and won a circuit ring there in March. He even won the €1,500 No Limit Hold’em Main Event in Rotterdam last year!

The bunny hat, then, is clearly a clever disguise for a very solid poker player.

Bensimhon is here at the Battle of Malta for the first time (we think) and is already on his second bullet. When we caught him in between bullets he said, “Re-entering? Of course. You don’t come to such an event just to play once.”

Players at his table, you’ve been forewarned. The man with the bunny hat has game (and rings), and he’s here to fire.
