    Any of you guys bet money on your sets? If so, how much? I bet when I'm playing golf, ranging from $20 - $100. My tennis buddies bet all the time, sometimes a set could have a wager of up to $5000. That is just too much pressure on the game. I don't think I can bet that much on my golf game neither (I'm a 3 handicap).

    No.

    A game's a game. If you get paid for it cool -- betting on it? No.

    the thing is..always the same guys that bet with each others..so in a long run, they kinda break even..win 1 lose 1.

    If I were to bet, an obvious prerequisite is that we would both need to agree on third parties to call lines and agree to live with whatever call they make. Otherwise, this would just be ridiculous.
