That's a good question. There are many reasons why some poker players like wearing sunglasses. Some want to prevent other players from seeing their reactions or emotions.

Some players just feel relaxed when wearing sunglasses, to protect their eyes from bright lighting, especially when they are playing poker for hours on end.

Some players probably got into the habit of wearing them because it helps from feeling nervous or anxious. Others may just want to follow the trend of wearing them while playing.
