50th ANNUAL ANGOLA PRISON RODEO for Sports Illustrated

“The smell of livestock accented the Louisiana air last month, as four men in black-and-white-striped shirts took their seats around a table, outdoors, for a high-stakes game of poker. The winner, though, would not be the player with the best hand or the most convincing bluff. No, it would be the last man to surrender his seat when Freddy Krueger, a raging bull weighing 2,000 pounds, charged the table… Convict Poker remains a highlight of the Angola Prison Rodeo, which, in its 50th year, continues to grow, drawing a total crowd of 70,000 in 2014.”
