Episode Summary

EDIT
Wild Card 1
AIRED:
Players who did not win their qualifying match compete for one last chance to make the semi-finals. The competitors are Kami Lis, "Rock n Roll" Darrell Arnold, Rick Fortain, Dannye Long and Henry Tran. All placed second in their original matches, with the exception of Henry, who won a second-chance drawing. With only one remaining chance at the semi-finals and no second-place, all competitors were fighting hard. As the first knockout hand came around, one player made a risky maximum bet, hoping others would follow. They did not, but a smart surrender saved the game. It was Kami Lis who was knocked out --- ending her dream of being the first player in World Series history to sit at three final tables. As the game progressed, one player found himself falling dangerously behind. Unable to catch up, he busted out just before the second knockout hand. This left three to compete in an intense final hand, where with a triple double-down, it was potentially anyone's match.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Henry Tran, "Rock n Roll" Darrell Arnold and Rick Fortin were left standing for the match's final hand. With only one moving on, all were in it to win it. All three bet the maximum of $50,000 and doubled down, with none of the three still in possession of their Burger King Power Chip. Henry had $150,500 and was forced to double down on a 19 in order to get more money on the table. Darrell had $203,750 and his outlook was much better with an 11 to double down on. Finally, Rick had $228,500 and doubled on a 12. With a dealer bust, Rick simply needed to win his double down to take the match. His double down card was a 3, puting him at 15 --- good for the win.

      • Before the start of the match, pit boss Brett conducted the second-chance drawing. This was a chance for one last lucky player to return for a second chance at making the semi-finals. Third place finishers received three entries, fourth place finishers received two and those who finished last in their original matches received one. Former World Series of Poker champion Henry Tran won this drawing.
