Poker Pros’ Vegetarian Gamble
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.
