All he had was a naked flush draw.

Late last month, a fully nude man was walking around one of Las Vegas’ largest poker rooms when poker players started to take notice. The Bellagio poker room was abuzz when the unknown gambler was eventually cornered off by security and forced to put back on his clothes that he was carrying around in his arms, covering his groin area.

According to a Tweet from Tommy Bates, Director of Poker at Philadelphia’s SugarHouse Casino, the man apparently was playing poker previously and returned nude for some reason to retrieve a couple of personal items.

However, others on social media, including high-stakes poker pro Doug Polk, said that the man was apparently trying to register and get into a game.

There was also speculation that the incident was the result of a prop bet.

Regardless of what he was trying to do, many poker players in the room took out their phones to record the bizarre incident at the Las Vegas Strip casino.
