My family and I play some mean games of nickel poker, but there's nothing mean about World Series of Poker player Annie LePage, whose thoughtful interview with PETA about why she went vegan showed that this competitor has a heart bigger than any jackpot.
Annie says that her healthy, humane diet helps her focus and will surely serve her well as she competes in this legendary tournament. Good luck, Annie!

I love to play blackjack, but when it comes to poker, I can't remember if a flush beats a full house or vice versa, so I usually breeze right by those tables.
But you can bet I'll be watching to see how a high-stakes vegetarian prop wager made between poker pros Phil Ivey and Tom "durrrr" Dwan on High Stakes Poker plays out. Dwan challenged Ivey to go vegetarian for a year, and Ivey accepted the million-dollar bet, noting that he'd been thinking about going meatless anyway.
Considering all the health and environmental benefits that a vegetarian diet offers—plus the endless possibilities for mouthwatering animal-free cuisine—that million-dollar prize will be a cinch for Ivey to win.
Up for a little side bet of your own? Take our 30-day vegan challenge—I bet you'll feel healthier than ever before.
