Episode Summary

EDIT
Carrie Fisher v. Kelli Williams v. Eric Roberts v. Chynna Phillips
AIRED:
A strange episode features odd betting patterns and generally odd behavior. With things as they are, neither host Matt nor dealer Dave are immmune to the effects of the wackiness. Although the bets are across the board, they tend to be on the rather low side for the most part, although nobody generally bets minimum either. This is another episode where the final results once again come down to the final card.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • On the final hand, everyone had a shot of winning except for Chynna Phillips. She was still technically in the game with $5,000, but needed a miracle to win and that miracle was gone as soon as the bets were revealed. Kelli Williams ended up winning, having taken the most money into the final hand and standing on 17. A dealer 21 made her the winner.
