PartyPoker Weekly: Prop Bets, Postcards, and Podcasts
This week over at PartyPoker; get an online postcard with Team PartyPoker, the Poker Show is back, and hear how Tony G once raced against a professional basketball player.
I Have A Proposition For You…
Over at the PartyPoker Blog, Chris Tessaro has written a great article about the culture of prop bets in the poker world. He recounts some of the classic prop bet stories in poker folklore, including Huck Seed standing in the ocean for 18 hours, Howard Lederer’s vegetarian bet, and the time Kara Scott had to wear a bunny suit after losing a prop bet.
He also told of one involving none other than Tony G which not everyone may have heard:
“PartyPoker’s own Tony G loves a good prop bet too. The G once ran a midnight footrace against an ex-pro basketball player. Tony got to run forward, while the athlete had to run backwards. Tony lost. Perhaps if he had taken his bike he might have had a better shot.”
Read the whole article over at the PartyPoker Blog.
