For those who cannot seem to get enough action at the poker tables poker prop bets are for you. There are many different types of bets one can make on poker, at or away from the tables. Prop bets can even be made in good fun, with stipulations other than money. For example, players will bet on certain events with the loser having to wear some type of embarrassing clothing.
Proposition betting has been around as long as the game of poker itself. Poker players are known for betting on just about anything, including their results in some of the world's biggest tournaments. For those looking to bet on the same events, Bodog now offers a poker prop betting section for the World Series of Poker.
The WSOP offers any bettor an opportunity to bet on a large variety of events and players. Some of the more common prop bets are earnings (in $) for an individual player over the course of the WSOP. For example:
Will Scotty Nguyen reach his stated promise that he will earn $4,000,000 or more in combined winnings at this year's WSOP?
If a player wagered $100 on Scotty Nguyen to win $4,000,000 or more and he accomplished this feat he/she would win $2,000. This type of bet online has one side; however, most wagers can be on either side, yes or no. For example:
2009 WSOP* - Will a female win a WSOP 'open' event at the 2009 WSOP in Las Vegas?
In this bet, a player wagering $100 on "Yes" wins $140 if a female wins (a non-female only) event. If a player were to bet $100 on "No" he/she would win only $50. In order to win $100 a bettor must wager $200.
