    Does anybody do “if bets”

    If so, what’s the advantage?

    I’ve always seen them but never really tried.

    It's basically a credit bet if your account is empty but one pending

    I used to do it quite a bit when I was betting any and everything. It’s good for the average better but very frustrating. Low risk and low reward. Once you get the second bet right and first bet wrong a few times you will stop doing it. Very frustrating.

    IF Bets and birdcages were most popular before online, so you didn't have to keep calling or going to see your guy
    to add another bet. Getting a hold of Bernie at the bar after the 1pm game wasn't always easy.

    farthest piss is the bet
