Drunken Prop Bet Could Cost Vanessa Selbst Millions!

Tags: 2016 WSOP, Dzmitry Urbanovich, Jason Mercier, prop bet, side bet, Vanessa Selbst
Posted on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 by "T".
In the world of poker, players can get some extra entertainment (and a lot of money as well) by means of winning at side/prop bets. It is the norm that poker pros will usually make side bets while they play in the tournaments, and the events in World Series of Poker (WSOP) are no exception. What makes such side bets truly interesting is that there are those that are bigger than others, and there[...]   Read more » Drunken Prop Bet Could Cost Vanessa Selbst Millions!

This could turn out to be a very expensive night out for Vanessa Selbst!! Why would you want to make such a bet? Jason Mercier is more than capable of winning a third and Vanessa has a few stressful weeks ahead

IMO Jason Mercier is very cheap of not accepting a by out if really she was very drunk when she made that bet.

The next day or so she realize that she had made a very bad mistake and Mercier declined her offer even if knew that it was made when she was very drunk and not a very clear brain.

To bad that a very good poker player like him would accept money from a drunk. Thumbs Down Thumbs Down Thumbs Down

But when you act like a macho you get punished (hopefully)

Why should he ?
If she was drunk at the cash tables and he kept taking her money then that's a different story.She probably thought she was being smart with the bet as it isn't easy to do but now when he's 2/3 of the way there she wants a buyout Shock
Take her for every penny Jason. Worship Thumbs Up

No sweat at all. Jason mercier is such a bad player. He lucked out twice already. There is no way he is going to bag a third win. I am willing to put up 200 mob point for a measly 1 mob point that jason mercier will fail to cash in on that action. Keep dreaming pal.

@teddybears73 I dont think so. You just wish you were as lucky as him. I rate vanessa selbst more than jason mercier. Hopefully he does not get the extra bit of luck he does not deserve and bankrupt a good female player. When you look at the gender stats of the wsop, it is already a sausagefest. Gl banessa.

Can we agree that it was a foolish bet for her to take because she clearly hugely miscalculated the odds to start with?
In the interview she says “the true odds have to be 10,000:1 or higher” and she snap called his 200-1 offer.
Maybe she'd have snap called 500-1 or even 1000-1.
Seems like a lot of drunken d**k wagging.

Well he's just treating Vanessa like one of the boys. If it was a man who made a bet while drunk people wouldn't say he's a macho and stuff like that. Before you bet big amount on tiny odds of something happening you better look at the risks and rewards... These guys are professional gamblers/investors surely they know something as basic as this.

The true odds of winning 3 are small but when you've already won 2 you only need to win 1 more so you can't see it as a 10,000 to 1 shot. It's a 1 to/amount of players in the tournament shot. And probably less since Jason Mercier has an edge on most players.

A bet is a bet as they say.
If he can say that its ok and its off, it will be good, but cant blame him for not cancelling it.
You should be careful what you do and under what circumstances.
Actions and reactions Smile

sometimes alcohol intoxication assists in a game of poker and betting stakes ... I can tell you exactly how he did it, and I sometimes much luck in the game ... but of course it is better not to do so as it is possible to lose too much

Vanessa Selbst... I really like her unique hair style and carefree demeanor. She seems to be a very nice person. I am very much looking forward to meeting her someday, preferably in a bar, coffee shop, steak house, pizza place, or golf course.

Would you make a such a huge bet when intoxicated? I guess most of us couldn't afford such a huge bet so it all starts to become relative. If you made a bet when drunk that was worth $20 would you be overly worried? Nah, didn't think so! It's peanuts to her whether drunk or not.... she's also having fun....at whatever the cost!

Caitlyn Jenner is part of the LBGTQ community too, so both of them are livin' in the same world to be quite honest... Just my two cents.
