By RP, November 22, 2016

Hong Kong-based poker cash game ace and businessman Tom Hall won almost a million dollars in a different style of gambling this week – he picked up $950,000 on a prop bet with an unidentified gambler that he could drop 26 lbs in body weight in under two months.

Hall did it and more in six weeks, losing 27.5 lbs to win the bet, which included bans on wine, luxury items of any kind and electronics priced over $100.

Hall posted details of the bet and how he managed to win it on his Facebook page this week.
