Bet Your Bottom Dollar : Phrases



Meaning:

It's a sure thing, to bet everything you have.


Example:

Bet Your Bottom Dollar. You have everychance to win the game.


Origin:

Just as they do today, 19th century poker players would keep their betting chips (dollars) in high stacks at the table, taking from the top when betting. When a hand was so good that a player wanted to wager the entire stack, they would pick up or push the stack by the bottom chip - literally betting with their bottom dollar.
