Can you check the following sentences? I was discussing with my teachers if the following sentences are ok. 1) It was audacious that he bet all of his money on gambling that night. 1) It was audacious that he made a big gamble that night. I don't know if they sound ok or awkward. Thank you!

They sound a little awkward because you start with a very formal expression, then finish colloquially. Try starting with, "It was bold of him to bet/make..."
