1,000,000 | Phil Ivey goes vegetarian

Phil Ivey

In an episode of High Stakes Poker that would air on March of 2010, the players around the table started talking about how much money it would take for them to become a vegetarian for a full year … after a lot of chatter, it’s poker superstar Phil Ivey who would take the bait, although even he had a feeling that he wouldn’t be able to make it through the 365-day “ordeal”…

“I’ll do it for a million. I can’t do it for less than that. I’m going to lose. I know I’m going to lose. I’m going to be begging to settle in, like, 4 days.”

True to his word, Ivey, who booked the bet with Tom Dwan, would settle after 20 days as ‘durrr’ walked away $150,000 richer … for $150,000, Ivey could have gotten a vegetarian chef to cook him delicious meals all year – and he would have been left with a $850,000 profit … oh well!
