I voted for the sports bet. But I'm not sure if I could watch the game, or if this falls into the Nareed-Soccer betting situation. I guess maybe if I drank enough...

Lay the 10 on a comeout roll only.

This was not a hypothetical question for me. It happened. The best offer I ever got from a casino happened January 2009 from Monte Carlo. It included $1000 in free play. I was going to take it and play black jack, but when I got there, it turned out they were giving me ONE thousand dollar chip that was good for ONE play only. Lose, they take it, win, they take the chip, but give you the winnings. So what to do, what to do?

Long story short, I sat down at a baccarat table and started playing. After player won three times in a row, I put the chip out on banker. I won. I was never so happy to pay a baccarat commission in my life!

Mark Cuban is watching you from the surveillance room, and signals the dealer to call no action on your bet. He comes down to the floor, snatches the chips back from you and kicks you out on the street. "Even money bets only!" he snarls.

I don't think so, it pays less than even money.

How about a sucker double six, 30:1 a very longshot but a nice win or even better 1 number on roulette, if its free its easy come easy go but a 35:1 win would be great!

How about putting it on the pair+ in TCP, along with a $5 ante and a $5 play bets? I think a stright flush pays 40 to 1. Even better, half on pair+ and hals on six card bonus (as a hedge, because that bet plays even if you fold!)

On the other hand, you could dump it all on Keno :P

I love it! Cuban can pick the line, and I'll bet the over/under straight up for my $10K:-)

banker in baccarat and its not even close. small house edge plus youre a favorite to win and no further decisions need to be made. its like the game was designed for making one large bet.
