G Smith just pulled a mississippi shuffle on Ms. Sabyl Cohen (of ESPN WSOP ME 200X whatever coverage fame).
The Wager – How much the 2008 attendance of WPT Legends of Poker at the Bike will decrease from 2007?
The Line – $1,000 on 25% decrease, and $1,000 on 20% decrease – two separate bets
Last Years Attendance – 485, making the 388 – G Smith would scoop both, 387-362 – they’d push, under 362 – G Smith would lose both.
This Years Attendance – 373 – woulda chopped the bet, but….on day 1, attendance was only 161 players, and day 2 energy got Sabyl a little nervous. She offered to settle…picked a ludicrous number of $1700 buy out. Gavin said he would have settled for $900. So Gav got the $1700 winner on what should have been a chop. Looks like things are turning around for the caveman.
Lesson of the day: Always go with your first instinct kiddies.
Thx pokerroad for the story.
