This is just weird: Man playing poker to avoid prison
I myself love to play poker but knowing you are playing to stay out of jail has to add a lot more stress to the game. If he can re-pay the money, that is awesome but I doubt he will be able to stay on a winning streak long enough to avoid jail. There are just way to many highs and lows that go along with playing the game.

Prosecutors are letting him play poker for his freedom.
