Broke the bank at Las Vegas, or won a packet of smokes for getting your tinkle out in class? Outrageous, heroic or plain stupid bets.

Poker with friends
£5 buy in game at a friends house, I was in pretty good shape, second in the game behind the hosts girlfriend who'd managed to luck into a HUGE win earlier in the game.

I'd hit a flush off the flop and started to push the betting up, on the turn card there was the possibility of a straight but seemed unlikely - they'd have to have the other 2 in their hand. Bet higher.

River card comes up to make it 1 card needed to make the straight, she goes all, I for some reason match. I show my flush and she smiles and goes "Straight!".

I almost let her take the chips and then realised she'd managed 4 consecutive cards and had hit them off the flop. We actually had to find a rule book to prove that a straight was 5 sequential cards, not 4!
