Capture your #PetsPlayingPoker and win

I have two dogs, and they are worthless at hold'em. "Omaha!" they bark. "Four cards for four paws!" they woof. It's annoying. Reckless, even. Never trust a Labrador with a wrap, I say.

You may have the same problem, and if so, it's time to take out your camera, because the people over at the @PokerStars Twitter account want to see #PetsPlayingPoker pictures. If they like yours, you could win a prize.

As an example, Team Pro'sLex Veldhuis has a cat that I wouldn't trust to play my stack.

If you have an animal that you've caught sneaking out to a game recently, here's how you can win.

1) Submit an image or video of your pets playing poker on Instagram between the November 1st and 12th and tag the photo #PetsPlayingPoker

2) 2) A PokerStars panel will judge the best image, and the winner will receive a custom pet caricature courtesy of www.sketchyourpet.co.uk.

3) Further updates on @PokerStars and PokerStars.net

Got it. Good. Then I'll leave you with a picture of Liv Boeree's horse (because, why wouldn't I?) and what it might look like if she won the contest.
