Gambling Prop Bets, Gambling and Poker Legends

Hey High Rollers, crazy famous prop bets today. Why? well, because we just heard of the $1.2 million dollar wager between Bill Perkins and Dan Bilzerian. Enjoy.

High Stakes Prop Bet
High stakes poker players Dan Bilzerian and Bill Perkins have shaken hands on a major wager, one that involves Bilzerian riding a bicycle from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in a 48-hour span. If the playboy Instagram star does he’ll collect on the $1.2 million bet. Perkins, a wealthy hedge fund manager, is known for making huge prop bets (most recently a bet with Antonio Esfandiari that resulted in ‘The Magician’ peeing at the table and getting DQ’d from there PCA in the Bahamas), against Bilzerian, who spent $100,000 on Powerball tickets for a $1.5 billion draw. Crazy stuff. Bilzerian tweeted that he hasn’t been on a bike in 15 years and he’ll now have to cover the roughly 300 miles in just two days. What do you think?

Bill Perkins
An avid poker player, who cashed for $1.9 million in the Big One for One Drop at the WSOP, Perkins focusses on venture capital and energy markets. He founded Small Ventures USA, L.P. in 1997 and later joined Centaurus Energy in 2002. He now manages Skylar Capital.

‘The Mouth’ Lost in the Forrest
In 2007, Mike Matusow got down from 241 pounds to 181 pounds and collected on a $100,000 weight loss bet with fellow multiple bracelet winner Ted Forrest. A few years later the two made another famous wager with Forrest dropping wight this time, And, he did. Forrest shed 48 pounds in three months to pocket a whopping $2 million.

The Johnny Moss Sucker Punch
Johnny Moss, legendary poker world champ and member of the Hall of Fame, once bet a guy who had never lost a bar fight that he could beat him. His price? 15-to-1. The stipulation? That he got to throw the first punch. So, Moss hit the guy from behind, in the head, but failed to knock him out and, as a result, suffered broken bones and a night in the hospital.
“Fifteen-to-one was too good to pass up,” he said.

Eat a Burger Baby!
Controversial poker great Howard Lederer, a known vegetarian on the poker circuit (when he was welcome), accepted a $10,000 wager to eat a hamburger, which he easily downed. Lederer gave his rival, David Grey, who hates olives, a chance to double up by eating a few. Apparently Grey hates olives more than he hates losing five figures because he gave up the cash.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name!
The first of two bets between fictional characters to make the list is one of my favorite episodes of Cheers and involves the gang growing beards for a month. Sam, Norm, Cliff and Frasier each throw in $20, agreeing to let Carla judge the entries on “length, body, fullness, luster, sheen and bounce.” All of them do pretty well, but Cliff has a little bit of trouble until he finds some “industrial adhesive products.”

Hilarious clip from ‘The Nuts’ by ESPN. Love Billy Gazes.

Barkely Vs Bavetta in Foot Race!

“If you’re committed to being a professional gambler, and you want to be the best you can be, you spend every waking moment trying to figure out a way to beat the game.”
– Billy Walters, Legendary Gambler (from Richard Munchkin’s book, Gambling Wizards)

– JC Alvarado on his fight with Olivier Busquet

Ronda Pounded, Sports Books Too
Rough day for sports books in Nevada when Holly Holm nailed Ronda Rousey with that vicious head kick at UFC 193. According to reports, it was a disaster. Most of the action was on Holm. According to a report from USA Today, the consensus line: $900 on Rousey to win $100, while a $100 bet on Holm would win $600. And the odds were much worse for Holm the further back you go from the fight. She was once 14-1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. It was reportedly the most heavily bet Ronda Rousey fight to date.

Giants Score Safety

Real estate man and huge Giants fan Jonah Rechnitz picked a popular prop bet – first score – using an unpopular choice –  safety. Well, the Giants forced Tom Brady into an intentional grounding from his own end zone to put New York up 2-0 to begin Super Bowl XLVI. Rechnitz dropped $1,000 on the ticket to net $50,000 at 50-to-1 odds and promptly vowed to give away all of that cash to charity.
Phil Michelson
Call it a hunch. In 2000, Phil Michelson wagered a cool $20,000 on the Ravens to win it all – before the season started. Baltimore was a 22-to-1 longshot to capture the Vince Lombardi trophy, but they did! 34-7 over the Giants. ‘Lefty’ collected $560,000. That’s like making a 60-footer for birdie.
Mr. Las Vegas Scores
In 1989, Bob Stupak, better known as ‘Mr. Las Vegas’, wagered $1 million on the underdog Bengals (-7) against the 49’ers. Cincinnati may have lost, but thanks to the cover, Stupak did not. (Always the pro, rumor has it Stupak hedged at halftime with a smaller bet on the Niners.)
The 2nd biggest upset in Super Bowl history was in 2002, when the Patriots beat the Rams. That game netted the MGM Resorts Race & Sports Book $4.8 million.
“The gambling industry is willing to devise anything to bring more money their way in profits. Prop betting is probably very popular because gamblers seek frequent and immediate action and gratification.”
– Bruce SvarePsychology Professor on prop betting.
The bookmaker is simply a middle-man who operates on a small profit margin and, ideally, he likes to see half the money wagered on one team and half on the other because if he can he will be assured a profit. If too much of the money goes on one team, the bookmaker will move the line or point-spread to encourage bets on the other team in an effort to balance his book. The person you are attempting to beat is the oddsmaker and his views on each team’s chances.
Like Father, Like Son?
Legendary gambler and prop betting specialist Titanic Thompson was honored at the first World Series of Poker in 1970. He had made gambling trips with his eldest son Tommy for many years, but after he died Tommy, a skilled, successful gambler in his own right, gave up a life of making bets for a church ministry. He successfully counsels prisoners and preaches to convince others to stay away from gambling.

Gambling in Ontario, Ed Thorpe Beats the Dealer & the ‘Suitcase Man’

Hey High Rollers, big weekend in the NFL…play-offs, interesting match-up between Dallas and Green Bay.  I will likely be betting the packers at BetOnline.  Wanna wager? Simply click the banner below and you’ll have money on your favourite team in minutes. Good luck & good gambling.

<BetOnline>

Gaming in Ontario

The Canadian online gaming market expanded in 2015 as the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has unveiled a new online gambling site, PlayOLG.ca. It’ll feature blackjack, baccarat, roulette, slots and video poker. The site also allows users to purchase lottery tickets online. Ontarians spend about $500,000 a year on off-shore gambling sites and OLG is hoping to get its share.

* Players will have to set weekly maximum
* Can play for free
* Proceeds to support hospitals, cultural activities and non-profit corporations
Ontario, which is Canada’s most populous province, is now the seventh Canadian province of 10 that offers regulated online gambling (British Columbia, Quebec, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island).

Super Bowl Wager
In 1989, Las Vegas Casino owner Bob Stupak bet big on Super Bowl XXIII, featuring the 49’ers and the Bengals at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami. Stupak fired large, a million bucks, on San Fransisco to win. And, they did! The winning touchdown coming with 49 seconds left on the clock. Stupak had bragging rights for two reasons, as it was also, at the time, the largest bet ever made in Vegas.

The ‘Suitcase Man’
In 1980, William Lee Bergstrom became a Las Vegas legend. Known as the ‘Phantom Gambler’ and ultimately the ‘Suitcase Man’, he anonymously entered Binion’s Horseshoe Casino with $777,000 in a suitcase and placed it all on a single bet. He doubled his money instantly and left, disappearing for three years. In 1984, he reappeared in the casino and bet $1,000,000 on a single bet at a craps table. he lost! The next year, almost a full year after his million dollar bust, he committed suicide in a hotel room.

Ed Thorpe
Authored Beat the Dealer, the first book to mathematically prove, in 1962, that the house edge in blackjack could be overcome by card counting. The mathematics professor and hedge fund manager is best known for being ‘the father of the wearable computer’ in 1961.

The House Edge

NBA Ring?
The late Jerry Buss, a poker fanatic and owner of the LA Lakers, promised Johnny Chan an NBA championship ring if he could win three in a row.  Incredibly, in 1989, Chan navigated a field of 178 players to find himself heads-up with Phil Hellmuth, a 24 year old from Wisconsin.  Hellmuth won!  While Johnny Moss, Doyle Brunson and Stu Ungar have also won two world champions in a row, Chan is the last person to do it.  The Hall of Famer has won 10 bracelets, tied for seond on the all-time list with Doyle Brunson.

Six Sided Poker Dice 
Poker dice are dice which, instead of having number pips, have representations of playing cards upon them. Poker dice have six sides, one each of an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, ten and nine, and are used to form a poker hand.

The ‘Brat’ a Swinger?
Phil Hellmuth has been offered a chance to appear on ABC’s “Wife Swap.” But, don’t expect him to take the network up on it…and took to Twitter to explain:
Have an offer to be on ABC television show “Wife Swap,” but wife won’t do it! Though I’m SURE she would look amazing!

Lyle Berman, a three-time WSOPbracelet winner, has been elected into the Minnesota Poker Hall of Fame – It’s 1st member and much deserved too…this guy changed poker with theWPT.

“Lyle is not only a fierce competitor at the highest limits, he completely and indelibly changed the world of poker when he co-founded the World Poker Tour,” Canterbury Park’s Senior Director of Card Casino Operations Michael Hochman said in a statement. “We talked to a great deal of people about inaugural nominees into the Minnesota Poker Hall of Fame, and literally everyone’s first answer was Lyle Berman.”

‘Dinsmore’

R. Scott Dinsmore is one of best contributors at High Roller Radio…here he has a brief correspondance with poker pro Dutch Boyd.

April 29, 2014
Interview with Dutch Boyd

RSD: How did you start playing poker on a professional level?

DB:  I had been sneaking into card rooms and playing online since I was 18, and loved playing. When I turned 21, I landed a job at Garden City in San Jose as a prop player. This would have been in 2002. A time-sheet and a schedule… that’s about as “professional” as it gets.

RSD:  What is your favorite poker game?

DB:  I like the mixed games… the 12/24 mixed game at Aria and the 8-game rotation on Stars.

RSD: Where is your favorite poker room?

DB:  In Vegas, the Aria is a beautiful room, but I think the Orleans treats their players better. My favorite live room was Gila River in Arizona… I think they changed the name, but they had so many great promotions. Online, I’d have to go with SealsWithClubs.eu… playing with bitcoin and getting cash outs the same day you request them is pretty awesome.

RSD:  What % do you play: Cash games ( 35% ) Tournaments ( 65% )

DB:  I’d be much better off if I just played cash games… tournaments are fluky and have a much lower hourly rate.

RSD:  What is your most memorable poker experience?

DB:  Ha… you don’t need to ask. You were there, bro! Taking down that first bracelet in front of the ESPN cameras, headsup with the former year’s champion after eliminating Negreanu in 8th (“spanking his ass” for the chiplead, lol).

RSD:  What is the most notable change you have seen in poker?

DB:  Well, the UIGEA and Black Friday made up the one-two punch that told us our government doesn’t want us making a career out of poker. It’s been sad watching pros have to relocate to play the game that they love. The game epitomizes everything that is good and bad about this country, and has such a deep history here. We have presidents who funded their political campaigns from poker winnings. Yet, it’s illegal to play Texas Hold’em in Texas or Omaha in Nebraska. The economy was crushed when the big sites left and I don’t think the US poker economy will ever get back to where it was before the UIGEA, even if we see interstate pacts.

Sports Betting Tips

#1) Pick your sport and know it!
Sports betting is the ultimate money game for the sports fan. If you know your favorite sport inside and out, you can overcome “the juice” or “the vig” , beat the oddsmakers.  Also, placing a sports bet makes the outcome of the game more meaningful and the game itself more thrilling.  You’ll be on the edge of your seat!

2) Select an Online Sportsbook
High Roller Radio recommends BetOnline or SportsBetting.ag, both super reliable and simple to use.  To start, simply click one of the boxes below and you’re well on your way to placing a bet.  Good Luck.

Again, We suggest BetOnline as a good sportsbook to start.  Keep in mind, the sportsbook is not the same as ahe oddsmaker. The sportsbook simply accepts sports bets. An oddsmaker is a person who sets the betting odds. Most major sportsbooks use odds set by Las Vegas oddsmakers. These oddsmakers typically work for major hotel sportsbooks.

3) Place your Bets

There are all kinds of different bets you can make and this is what intimidates beginning sports bettors.  Stay Calm.  You can place a number of different bets including straight bets, parlays, teasers and over/unders.

Poker Prayer:  God, grant me the serenity to accept the flop, the courage to check raise the turn & the wisdom to know when to properly fold.  May the poker Gods give me strength to bluff in a big spot, the ability to read someone’s soul, the smarts to calculate the odds in every spot…and the balls to get my money in…and the grace to accept whatever happens, realizing of course it’s just a game…and poker Gods…give me gratitude, even when my aces get cracked, and the maturity to act in a civil manner at the table.

But Poker Lord…please let me put a Bad Beat on Seat 4!  lol.

High Roller Radio Thought of the Day:

“When you’re in the middle of the debate of whether or not to take action, ask yourself if there was ever a time where you chose taking action over procrastinating and regretted it. Probably very few. Now ask yourself if you’ve ever felt guilt or regret by not taking action. You’ll probably find that there were plenty of times.”
– Kevin Ngo

Now, be a High Roller and go take on the day.
