It's a function that lets you type "50k" and have it parsed to 50000.  50M
= 50000000 and 50 = 50.  Nevermind, that's adv_atoi()...I don't remember
what parsebet() does, it probably takes the value of buf1 and changes it to
your bet and then adds it to the bet_pot which shouldn't work because it's
not passed by reference.

Hmm...I'll go look at it and get back to you.
