pagar (un apuesto)


Explanation:
The phrase is incorrectly spelled (should be ante up; it's usually pronounced with the t very soft or absent) and used. In gambling, to ante up is to put the ante, the first bet in a hand of poker, into the pot. It also has an extended sense, to contribute towards an expense being shared among a group of people, for example to buy someone a present.

Explanation:
Hola. "Aposté por los Steelers y gané. Ahora Lucy tiene que apoquinar". Never heard it but it's got to be "to pay" (pagar, slang versions above) as Lucy lost the bet. May come from "annuity" or from "ante up", synonyms of "pay" and "to pay", Roget's says. Verrrrry slangy. Good luck :)

Explanation:
*anny* es una variante dialéctica (eufemismo) de *ante*--suena más respetable que "ante", por sus conotaciones de poker.

Tambien existe el vaiante de bingo que se llama "Penny Anny" o "Penny Annie" (para "Penny Ante"): cuando se apuestan puros centavos. Es la actividad preferida de los viejitos en el centro adonde van mis papás (pero a mis papás, no les interesa nada)
