    I was watching an episode of Card Sharks with Bob Eubanks as the host. The contestant was Marinea and she was playing the bonus round. She had an ace and said higher and bid everything. The next card was a 9, and the game should've been over. However they kept going and she won $1800.

    Wow, I'm surprised after 22 years they didn't catch that. Interesting. I don't think Marinea was complaining though because she won a pretty good amount of money. Also, why would you go "higher" on an Ace, and Bob just assumed that nobody is dumb enough to call "higher" on an Ace or "lower" on a 2 since both are impossible.
