      I would do both of those for alot less than $1,000,000...........

      Anyone willing to muscle up $50k?

      Could do it like this:

      Line up 1k parachutes, I pick one, jump out of a plane.

      This way I get to parachute aswell, which I've always wanted! : D

      lol, indeed :)

      in any case, I guess yeah, drawing dead would get a little more finite meaning...

      and regarding my presence, I'd need to perform more detailed EV analysis, before committing myself for such an endeavor :)

      in any case, I think above point of view is not good for poker... :s_mad:

      I would do it providing the death wasn't a painful one.

      of course, open shove every hand and have everyone covered.

      I mean can you call a shove with aces even knowing you are against any two?

      however it would be such a boring tourney everyone trying to fold to the money.

      I don't know if this is a joke or not, But I wouldn't do it.
      Understant +/-EV is a thing, but you have to look further.

      Example: I have a lottery in my country called 649, where you choose 6 number from 1-49, if you have all 6 you win the jackpot. The odds of hitting are 1-to-13,983,816. For the purpose let say its 1-to-14,000,000.

      A ticket cost 2$, so to have a +EV on this lottery the jack would need to be more than 28,000,000$. The thing is, you still have 13,999,999 chance to lose and if you buy a ticket each week for 100 yeas, you still have 1-to-2692 odd againts you. So the theorem of EV cant be applied to those big lottery.

      I think the same would apply to the parachute jump IMO, screw the money, love the BB/100, enjoi.

      Would you spend 1 million $ on some precausonary device to make the likelyhood or ur death occuring tomorrow 1/999 smaller? if not then u know that ur life is worth little enough for it to be +EV.
