Episode Recap

Order of Elimination: - Andy Richter - Tom Everett Scott - Jon Favreau - James Blake Winner: Maura Tierney In tonight's game, James Blake rose to an early lead. With Maura holding pocket kings, Jon Favreau fell into her trap as she took one of the biggest pots of the night. Jon, who got crippled by the loss to Maura, raised his chip count back by knocking out Andy Richter. James Blake took the lead back at one point, but Maura was not going to be outplayed. She continued to play aggressively and forced Tom Everett Scott to go all-in, which was to be his last hand for the night. James then took out Jon with pocket kings and set up a shootout and a tequila shot session with Maura. The lead in the one-on-one between Maura and James changed hands several times before Maura finally finished off James and booked her return to the season's the Championship game.
