What are some proposition bets that you guys wager?

definition from here http://www.flopturnriver.com/poker-prop-bets.php

Poker Prop Bets
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.

I had minor prop bets like

1 . " act pro non live players betting on live player's hands ,

like i bet 2 BB that he has an overpair on the flop.

2. Deuce 7 - collect 2 BB for every pot won with 2 7.

3. How many non blind hands a NIT/Rock will play in the 1st 8 rounds , less then 6 or more then 6 .

I think prop bets make the home cash games more fun :mrgreen:

I bet away from the table with friends of mine. Its nothing related to poker at all. Currently I have a 100 metre sprint challenge with another guy for $10 on monday, $15 to do a 'windmill' (the breakdancing step) in 3 months and $100 to do a windmill dunk on a basketball rim by the end of the year.

My last 2 bets are supposed to motivate me to get fit. I need to get at least a silver for my NAPFA, don't wanna get an extra 2 months.

You guys are serious? Is it really that difficult? I've even seen Shaq (the oversized basketball player) do it. Hmm.. sounds tempting but I only bet for fun though with people I know, just so I can rub it in if I win. Either way though, I'd better make sure I can get that step down. Looks like I'm gonna lose $15!
