Posted on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 by "T".
On October 7, Doug ‘WCGRider' Polk uploaded a Youtube video showing his one-on-one basketball match against Phil Hellmuth in Pittsburgh, a 10-1 odds on a three-point shot on the first try without even warming up. It is Polk's $10,000 versus Helmuth's $1,000. Guess who had the most fun and won in the end? Hellmuth, 53, may have not been able to defend his title in the second edition of Poker[...]   Read more » Doug Polk vs Phil Hellmuth Basketball $10,000 Prop Bet

Haha, these guys will literally have a bet on anything. I would have loved to have been there to watch this and i dont think they will be able to shut Phil Hellmuth up for a very long time about this

I like this funny bet news about the poker pros, but i think they loose all their poker winnings in this kind of side bets. Perhaps it was to boring to play only live poker and so they need a new adrenaline kick Blink

Old men might not be able to jump, but they can still throw. Cool

Nice shot by Hellmuth, showing those young Punks how it is done. But betting $10k on something like that only shows that some folks just have to much money at their hands.

ok I must say that this 4 dudes tournament with all the pre match excitement and now as we see all the post matches fun really were I think a well planned event with lots of pr for all the guys involved and the organizers of the event.

An excellent thing is that they are playing other kind of games not just poker. It's nice to see them do something else but they can not stop bets. They do what they do and always bets. I have the impression as with their wives or fiancees do the same. Their life is like a continuous bet i think. Smile

The only thing I see here is Hellmuth has at least 20 lbs+ on him. Maybe he should be betting on loosing some weight.

Some of the other guys in the video were in even worse shape the he is, and they are much younger. Sitting on your behind countless hours every day to play poker isn't that good for the general fitness.

Ha ha funny guys, when playing poker is done they think pf some other ideas and to have fun when doing them. Of course it is so popular with poker players to have many prop bets and some of them funny, some crazy and very often it is a lot of money in these bets

They are the definition of gamblers.
What others do just for fun and spent some time, they are doing it for money.
If you can afford it, it is not a big deal, but still something that i dont like.
Even if i had the money for it Smile

Yeah but those other guys did not bragged about their ability to make a three pointer without warming up etc. By the way yeah, the overall health concerns are bigger when you spend your day working behind a desk. Gambling or having a desk job are risky 4 putting on weight fast.
