Phil Ivey gets $1 million if he becomes a vegetarian

Tags: challenge, durrr, phil ivey, prop bet, tom dwan, vegetarian.
Posted on 10 March 2010 by "T".

Ever thought of becoming a vegetarian? If no, what if you got $1 million dollars and only had to stick to it for one year? Now it start sounding interesting ha? Well, if you're a good friend of Tom "durrrr" Dwan and have a lot of money, then you might get a crazy prop bet like this one!

In the latest episode of High Stakes Poker, Tom Dwan offered his High Stakes buddy Phil Ivey $1 million dollars if he stops eating meat and fish for a whole year. At first, Phil Ivey wanted $2 million dollars for doing it, but since he had thought about becoming a vegetarian for some time, he decided to accept the challenge.

"I will do it for $1 million dollars. I have thought about becoming a vegetarian for a while now, so this prop bet will make it extra interesting and challenging." said Phil Ivey in an interview with the host of High Stakes Poker, Kara Scott.

I would become a vegetarian for a half of a million, but this is for a normal person with no money at all. But for a millionaire like Ivey I succest that he would ask like a 10 million.

THIS.

ok. 10 million for a week would be acceptable. Big Smile
 Lowlander_PL10/03/2010 11:06:21 GMT
I would do that for free. But on the other hand playing high stakes poker, eating hamburger and gettin a nice massage from a beauty at same time that`s a living too Big Smile Big Smile
 DaMessiah66610/03/2010 11:10:06 GMT
How will Durr check if Ivey keeps his promise?? He will be for a year beside him? Even in the toilette? I think it's a question of marketing, for sure it's not for real ...
 Flippedchips10/03/2010 11:51:14 GMT
yea i always wondered how to make sure they are following through with these things but u hear of them doing these cray things all the time. Anyone see that program poker2night? one of the presenters made a bet with gavin smith and another guy that who ever busted first in i think it was the L.A classic tourny had to tatoo the other 2s faces on thier body, lol i think this is nuts but if u didnt have to how funny would it be
 SuperNoob10/03/2010 13:19:03 GMT
lol it can't get more funny than this.
1 million? i'll do that for one tenth Tongue
but hows he gonna make sure that phil keeps his side of bet, he can't have his guys spying on him whole year 24x7 lol
 GIOMi610/03/2010 14:40:17 GMT

 MANUEDO10/03/2010 16:50:27 GMT
Of course I would accept. It would be hard for me not to eat 'Amatriciana', 'Carbonara','Salsicce di puro suino' but ofr 1 million I would do it.
 T3ddyKGB10/03/2010 17:00:42 GMT
alot money...1 or even 2 years no problem. but for a lifetime ??
no barbecue more, not even spaghetti or lasagne? man thats a lack in quality of life ! like never ever having sex again Shock
nah keep your money dwan.
 IslandJack10/03/2010 17:07:27 GMT
I don't think a guy like Ivey needs $1 million that bad, do you?
I need the $1 million that bad, or even half, or even less... Big Smile
 Chartoule10/03/2010 17:31:34 GMT

I would like to get milion too Big Smile
 psycokiller10/03/2010 18:21:49 GMT
Different types of vegetarians out there. Does this prop bet include dairy products as well? I could make do without meat, but not to have dairy as well is going too far.

hmmmm............ check his shit Big Smile
 jasoncashton10/03/2010 18:57:59 GMT
He will do it for 1m because as rich as everyone might think a pro player is they arent,most of the money they make they have to give back a % for whoever might sponser this player, the million would sound good to him because IT would be his million to do whatever with.

Agree on this point...




 ierons10/03/2010 19:28:43 GMT
On the show jason mercier says to ivey "couldnt u just order steaks to ur motel room" to which ivey replies: "why would i do that? Its the same as stealing - i don't steal" So the honor system is obv good enough for both these guys.
 rattacha10/03/2010 21:56:15 GMT
I wont do that. Man needs 3 kind of meal: meat, meat, meat. Okay, sometimes chicken...
 sensao8710/03/2010 23:07:52 GMT
lol nice challenge
 jessthehuman10/03/2010 23:52:33 GMT
honour system my ass. Stupid bet and if ivey likes he's meat I'll be he'll cheat. There's a certain thing in the human condition known as reason and unless he's some dumbshit religious freak (unlikely since he's a poker pro) he's gonna cheat when he's somewhere with no one watching and reason and logic kick in.

btw, I'm vegan anyway and find it hard to fathom some of you who say you wouldn't do this.. ? $1M for one year of not being an indulgent prick? com'on.
 Edzus8911/03/2010 00:17:03 GMT
nice bet lol Big Smile Could be one very expensive meal, if he fails. Tom should be very sure that Phil is really addicted to meet, to make this kinda prop bet Big Smile

I do a vegetarian for 10 k, and I quit for another 5k.
I get paid once everything returns to normal life ...
 teteban11/03/2010 01:51:10 GMT
Are they sooooo bored of poker and sports betting that they have to agree on these stupid bets? Why don't they bet on the name of their firstborns or something?


Oh crap, I gave them ideas
 GabeKaplan11/03/2010 04:33:23 GMT
