The seventh qualifying tournament of the season saw the return of Ken Einiger, the champion from the show's second season. Having played in all four seaons, he was hoping to become the first and only player to be a two-time champion. Hoping to deflect him from this dream were four other players, all stiff competition. The match included Joe Reitman, an actor from Los Angeles, California who has won over $300,000 in tournaments. There was also Rick Fortin from Warner Robins, Georgia --- an aerospace engineer. The only female entrant in this match was Kristine Johnson, an insurance agent from Longview, Washington. Finally, there was Don Rebentisch, a retired mechanic from Coral, Michigan. After a slow start to the match, play began in earnest, with steadily increasing bets and risks taken by the players. On the whole, it was a quiet match, marked by superb emotional control by many of the players. However, when one player found himself in a hole heading up to the final hand, he was forced to make maximum bets in the hopes of getting back in the game. Instead, he fell further and further behind, leaving the final hand to be a two-player affair.moreless
