Episode Recap

Order of Elimination: - Stephen Root - Christopher Meloni - Sarah Silverman - Michael Vartan Winner: Matthew Perry Even as he brought his old antics, Matthew Perry came into the game with a different poker strategy from his previous appearance. Encouraging everyone to rub the felt was still his thing, but this time he played more aggressively right from the start. While Michael Vartan took out Stephen Root, Matthew gained the chip lead by taking a huge portion of Christopher Meloni's stack. Both Matthew and Sarah Silverman knocked out Chris in a split pot. Matthew then took out Sarah and began the one-on-one with Michael. Michael stole the chip lead from Matthew, but Matthew gained it back soon after. Matthew then picked up pocket kings which helped him seal his victory and a spot on the Championship table.
