Whether you consider them brave or reckless, some guys just have balls bigger than spacehoppers, making them perfect for the all-or-nothing world of gambling.
You can certainly say that of one professional poker player at the UK Poker Championships last night who won a four-way split pot and proceeded to bet it all on a spin of the wheel.
Jake Cody won a pay-out of £42,670 ($59,992) at the Dusk Till Dawn casino in Nottingham before deciding that wasn't enough and heading to the roulette table - with fellow player Ant Samuel capturing the scenes on video. The man has stones.
While most of us would have celebrated a job well done by buying a bottle of bubbly and heading out on the lash, Cody decided to wager his trophy and his £42,000 winnings on the roulette table instead in front of a massive crowd.
With Cody plumping for black and the crowd chanting in support, the owner of Dusk Till Dawn himself - Rob Yong - was the one to spin the ball and decide Cody's fate.
As it turned out, the ball fell on Black 22, meaning that Cody landed himself a cool £85,340 ($119,882). As you can expect, absolute bedlam ensued. Bet Cody had a sore head this morning from all the drinks he must have bought.
This isn't the first time that someone's bet it all on a simple bet of red or black - Cody's bet is small-fry in comparison to a fellow Brit who once wagered absolutely everything he owned.
Back in 2010, a British gambler called Ashley Revell sold all his possessions, including his home and clothes, and gambled £76,840 (US$135,300) all on red at the Plaza Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.
Luckily for Revell he won, doubling his money to £153,680 ($270,600) before wisely deciding to walk away. He ended up using the money on a short-lived poker business and on a cross-Europe road-trip on a motorbike, where he ended up meeting his future wife.
