Say what you will about Tony G but the man is always good for a prop bet.
Yesterday rumors started swirling that The G had offered Melanie Weisner a seat in the $10,000 Aussie Millions Main Event if she could ride a unicycle around a poker table twice.
The rumors were true.
We had a feeling when we saw Weisner practicing with a unicycle in the hall earlier today but Tony G confirmed over Twitter that he was indeed offering $10k if she could pull it off.
After the third level of the Day 1c Main Event, in which Weisner is already playing, Tony G, Weisner, the media and about 20 of Weisner’s friends congregated on the Crown Casino promenade outside the casino.
Weisner and Tony G talked for a few minutes about the arrangement. Weisner wanted to go in a straight line instead of around an object and Tony G finally relented.
After a couple test runs Weisner finally took off and came tantalizingly close to winning the bet finally falling of the unicycle within about 15 feet of the makeshift finish line.
We’ve got a couple photos from the event after the jump:
