Phelps Plays His Hand

Swimmer Michael Phelps got the poker bug after his medal-hoarding run in Beijing—and it looks like he hasn’t lost any interest in the game.

The Olympian turned up at Blush during a party for Tony Hawk’s Stand Up for Skateparks charity about 2 a.m. Nov. 7 with poker pro Antonio Esfandiari. They didn’t hang around too long though—they took off before 3 a.m. to go play some cards.
