Episode Summary

EDIT
Salomon v. Orel v. Rick Jensen v. Mikki v. Philip
AIRED:
The fourth qualifying tournament features a diverse group of players from varying backgrounds. Orel Hershiser is a retired major league baseball player from Dallas, Texas. Rick Jensen is a pro blackjack player from Irving, Texas. Salomon Cohen Botbol is a laboratory president from Caracas, Venezuela. Mikki Sullivan is an attorney from San Diego, California and finally, Philip Richman is an auto parts distributor from Minneapolis, Minnesota. As the celebrity at the table, much attention is on Orel Hershiser and he manages to survive both knockout hands. Another player surprises the others by initially adopting a conservative strategy and then surprisingly switching to one that seems to be straight-out gambling. For the most part, the match is marked by highly conservative play, with all remaining players below their initial stakes on the final hand.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • On the final hand, Salomon had $86,750 and bet only $5,000. Orel had $70,000 and bet $40,000. Rick had $78,000 and bet $14,500. The dealer showed an ace, so insurance was offered. Rick chose to take the insurance, giving him second place in the event of a dealer blackjack. It was indeed a dealer blackjack, so Salomon won the match, with Rick taking second.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Matt: It's not often you get excited over a dealer blackjack, but this is tournament play, where the dealer can be your friend, as she was in that last hand to Salomon.

      • Rick: (surrendering a $23,000 bet, leaving him $39,000) We're going to do an intentional walk and try to come back.
        Matt: Oh, Rick, not even a tired baseball cliche could validate that play, cha cha. He's surrendered three of the last four, he's lost seven straight, and he's in bad shape.

      • Matt: I'm getting nervous just watching Philip pace around the table. And a bust after he hits up the fourteen. And now he's left with $20,000 and is in bad shape given the next hand is a knockout hand.

      • Orel: (regarding Philip) Señor surrender, down there. Now he's got the big bets around here. Pressing it up.

      • Philip: I'll bet $46,500.
        Matt: Oh wow, and Captain Conservative bombs away. Philip loads up. He had made a minimum bet in each hand until now and he wisely leaves half of his bankroll behind the double or split.

      • Matt: Orel stays on top and we send our attorney back to court as Mikki Sullivan finishes in fifth place.

      • Matt: Well, this episode of the World Series of Blackjack takes on a decidedly baseball flavor, of course, with Orel Hershiser here and a bunch of baseball fans seated around him.
