Poker Night In America | Season 2, Episode 6 | Soda, Bottle Water


From Seminole Hard Rock in
Hollywood, Florida, this is
Poker Night in America.
[MUSIC]
>>Welcome to Poker Night in
America.
I’m your host, Chris Hanson.
We’re headed back to the
Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood,
Florida for
more of the poker and
personalities you’ve come to
expect from Poker Night in
America, and although poker is
indeed being played, you
couldn’t be faulted for
mistaking it for a game of
Hungry Hungry Hippos.
You see, anything that gets
thrown in middle of that table
is getting gobbled up
just as fast as it gets put in,
so
the players might be smart to
actually count their fingers
after a show.
Plus we’ll take some time away
from our cash game and take a
look at
the unpredictable conclusion of
the Rock’ n’ Roll Poker Open.
All of that to come and more, so
let’s get to it.
And using all of the fingers
I’ve got,
let’s tally up who’s making what
at the cash games.
As you can see $12,000 made so
far at this game from Dan
Weinman.
The biggest loser is Jean-Robert
Bellande, down almost 25K.
The blinds of this cash game, 25
and
50, optional $100 straddle
posted by some of the players as
well.
>>Somebody just told me I’m so
beautiful.
>>Poker Night In America
brought to you by 888 Poker
where the world plays online.
>>I’m gonna check it.
I’m gonna check it for you,
Matt.
>>I saw, it’s twenty three
points with six minutes to go in
the second.
>>Looks like Shaun Deeb will
start us off tonight raising
with 4-5 suited.
>>16 to 7.
>>Brian Hastings calls with
kings.
No re-raise from the button.
>>No, excuse me, Green Bay is
up, I’m sorry
>>Dan will call from the big
blind.
And it looks like Matt will call
from the straddle.
And the flop is nine deuce
eight.
Something going on for everyone
here, Weinman’s up and down
draw.
Russell flops two-pair, Deeb’s
got the flush draw.
And Hastings has an over pair so
everybody here probably liking
where they’re at.
>>Ha ha!
[SNORT]
That’s funny.
[LAUGHING]
>>Is that some kind of bet?
>>Ha ha! That counts, it’s
within ten seconds.
Every time Gavin grunts.
>>Snorts, not grunts.
>>It’s $100, snorts, excuse me,
snorts.
>>Ugh, that was a bad bet.
>>Dan’s over it, I snapped
through about
100, he was, he was, I was free
rolling after the first seven
minutes of the show.
>>What are you have?
Like, over 1,000, right?
>>I up five, no I’m up 500, cuz
I.
>>Well I mean, you’ve been paid
1,000, so you’re up 500.
>>Yeah, yeah, 500.
>>Deeb lets his draw go,
back to Brian.
>>Got like 8k behind?
>>Ah these are bigger than two,
so, probably in that
neighborhood.
>>Hastings calls, and so
now to Dan Wineman.
>>I, I have a specific
question from one of
my fans.
>>Who for 1125 more is getting
a great price, here to see the
turn.
>>One of them, I have 4.
>>Four?
[LAUGH]
>>But I have a specific
question for one of the players
at this table.
>>Well let’s let this pot brew
and then you can.
>>Yeah alright after,
after this pot.
>>Dan calls.
So, wow. Over 6k in the pot as
we go to the turn.
It’s a ten.
And everyone now, with plenty of
money getting shipped around in
the flop, slows down.
They check to the river.
It’s a five.
So, Matt Russell playing the
straddle for
a hundred dollars has now turned
that into a 6100 dollar winner
so far.
He’s gonna try to get some more
out of it, 1800 is the bet.
And if you’re Brian Hastings
with kings, you think.
There’s gotta be a set out here
or
somebody had to make a straight
on the turn.
Or maybe my kings are good.
Now Dan Weinman finds himself in
a very tough spot.
You have two players on the
river who obviously really liked
their hand.
So how happy is he with having
top pair?
He makes the right call and
folds.
>>I got two pair.
>>And so nine deuce wins a
$9,700 pot to start us off from
Matt Russell.
>>So, I’ve got a question,
Daniel.
>>Yes.
>>From one of my adoring fans.
And the question is why do you
throw clubs.
Quit mid round and cry
constantly?
[LAUGHING]
>>Could you answer the
question?
>>You don’t know who this is
form?
You don’t know who this is from?
>>Josh I’m guessing.
>>From one of my fans.
>>I don’t think Josh is a fan.
[LAUGHING]
>>Interesting cast of
characters as usual here on
Poker Night in America.
Coming from all across the
country here to Seminole Hard
Rock.
>>Gavin, Gavin.
Gavin folds over to Shaun.
Were on Matt Afflek in seat one,
have yet to see him play a hand
tonight.
Alan Richardson seat two on the
button.
Everyone folds to you, you
automatically raise and he’s
doing it with good cards.
King, queen of diamonds.
Makes it 300.
Jean-Robert calls and Dan calls
from the straddle.
So we’ve got three players going
to the flop.
Ace, seven, five with a couple
of clubs.
Dan is first to bet at 650.
Back to Alan.
With a call.
>>I’m all in.
>>All in.
>>And Jean-Robert’s gonna move
all in.
He’s got the nut flush draw.
It’s a nice little spot for
Jean-Robert to pick this pot up,
if he can get Weinman to fold,
Richardson’s also gonna fold.
But Weinman does not fold.
He calls with top pair.
>>Do you want to do anything?
>>Let’s go, let’s go two times.
>>All right. They’re gonna run
it twice.
Here comes the first one,
it’s a queen.
And the second one is a ten, no
club and the turn on the second
run is
a king giving Bellande help but
no king or club on the river.
And John-Robert unfortunately’s
going to get stacked again.
>>Well tonight at this table
for John-Robert Bellande if it
wasn’t for bad luck he wouldn’t
have any luck at all.
It’s a $30,000 loss for
John-Robert at his first ever
appearance on Poker Night in
America.
We hate to see you go, J.R.B.,
but we sure liked having you at
our table.
And don’t let all that needling
from Gavin get you down, he does
that to everybody.
>>I really feel like Chris,
Chris Hanson’s overrated in
this,
in this whole operation.
Well, Gavin I’d like to disagree
with you, but once again, you’ve
read my soul and you’re one
hundred percent right.
After the break, we’re gonna
switch gears and
take a look at the nail biting
conclusion to the Rock and
Roll Poker Open worth half a
million dollars, so stick
around.
Poker Night in America is being
brought to you by 888poker.com.
Where the world plays online.
>>Soda bottle water.
Anybody soda bottle water?
Banana? Bottle water?
Soda bottle water.
>>Oh you got banana for me?
>>Yeah banana.
Banana my friend.
>>This is your banana?
>>Banana, banana.
>>Thank you.
>>Enjoy banana.
>>Is it a good luck one?
>>Oh yeah, yes that’s a
good one.
>>I’m gonna play Poker Night.
Is it a good one?
>>Oh yes.
Welcome back to Poker Night in
America.
The Seminole Hard Rock n Roll
Poker Open.
Also going on while we were
filming this week, it’s $3500
Championship
that brought pros and amateurs
from all over the world to south
Florida.
>>I’m doing my homework.
>>Six hundred and one total
entries and a $2 million dollar
prize pool.
And here’s a look at the chip
counts as we started our final
six.
[MUSIC]
>>All in.
The WPT Season seven player of
the year Faraz Jaka went out in
sixth place.
Shoved it in with Ace, King and
couldn’t find either one of
those and so
he was eliminated but walked
away with $91,000 in cash for
sixth place.
Steven McCoy known as Stevie Gee
from Birmingham Alabama.
>>How do you feel?
>>Pretty good.
>>You think I’m going to get
there or not?
>>You gotta hold.
[LAUGH]
>>Walked away with $110,000
from Seminole Hard Rock in fifth
place.
And Jeff Chang goes back to
Washington, D.C. in fourth
place.
That was good enough to bring
home a $138,000 payday.
And that leaves us three-handed
for
a championship worth almost half
a million dollars.
From Boca Raton, Florida, this
is Chris Bolek.
He is the short stack with just
over one point seven million.
And second in chips with six
point eight million is Andy
Andrejevic.
And our big stack is Sean Winter
entering three handed playing
with
nine point two million in chips.
And he’s first to act in this
hand.
The next player eliminated will
leave Seminole Hard Rock with
$170,000.
Second place, $270,000, and the
champ, $480,000.
>>All in.
>>Almost half a million dollar
payday.
>>Call.
Well, we’ve some action right
off the bat here, 3-handed.
And Chris Bolek is all in with
queen, nine, and
he gets called by Sean Winters,
ace, queen, suited.
Things not looking good for
Chris.
And the flop’s three, five
eight.
[MUSIC]
And it’s a seven so a couple of
more options open up now for
Bolek.
Got a gutter ball or a nine, and
the rivers a six and look at
that.
He makes the gutter ball on the
river.
From out the door to sit back
down for Chris Bolek.
Sean Winter, on the button.
With aces and raising to
205,000.
Ten, seven of clubs.
Now at this point, these players
have been playing together for
quite some time.
And that’s where you start to
wonder if they’re picking
something up on some of
the other players.
Andy pairs his seven, but will
not bet.
They both check.
And here’s the turn.
It’s another nine.
And Andy’s betting 325.
And now we’re gonna see the
river, as these two players get
involved in a huge pot.
River’s another nine.
So a full house for both
players.
And three handed you gotta
believe that if you’ve got a
full house you are rock solid.
Andy’s betting 575 into the chip
leader.
Let’s see if Sean calls or if he
elects to raise.
And he goes with the smart move
and raises to 1.625.
And Andy calls, and that call is
gonna cost him a lot of chips,
as 4.4 million goes from one
side of the table to the other.
And that hand looks pretty darn
good to you if you’re Andy
Andrejevic.
But unfortunately, it cost him a
lot of chips.
Raising on the button with
sevens here as we conclude the
Rock and
Roll Poker Open at Seminole Hard
Rock.
Almost half a million dollars on
the line for first place in this
tournament.
>>All in.
>>Call.
>>Just a couple hands ago,
Bolek had doubled up with a
lucky river, and
now he’s looking to eliminate
Andy, to go heads up.
Flop his ace, jack, six.
The tens from Chris Bolek are
still ahead.
And there’s a ten on the turn
and that means Andrejvic is
drawing dead and
he’ll be eliminated in third
place with $170,000 payday.
I know it was this hand that
eliminated him but
the one before was the one that
did the real damage.
When we come back, we’ll find
out who’s walking
away with almost half a million
dollars in cash.
Plus more cash game action,
coming up.
>>Last time you did that, you
were bluffing.
>>Well, raise me.
Closed captioning is brought
to you as a public service by
Poker Night in America.
Welcome back to Poker Night in
America.
Two players are all that’s left
from the Rock and Roll Poker
Open,
and there’s half a million
dollars on the line, and these
players are going at it.
Chip counts are pretty even as
they got started with heads up.
But after the first thirty
hands,
slowly the chips started making
their way to the stack of Chris
Bolek.
>>I think it’s impossible for
me to lose another hand.
>>Well, Sean, if you don’t
start winning them, this
tournament will be over.
Sean limped in out of the small
blind.
And Bolek raises with pocket
tens.
>>I’m all in.
>>Call.
>>From the big blind Winter
moves all in.
And a call.
From Chris.
He used tens to eliminate Andy.
Let see if he can use them to
eliminate Sean Winter as well.
Here comes the flop.
It’s Queen, six, ten.
And that’s all but going to do
it for Sean Winter.
[APPLAUSE]
The turn is a three and that
is it.
Chris Bolek, starts three handed
play as the short stack and
walks away as the Seminole Hard
Rock n Roll Poker Open
Champion.
>>Ugh, should of called the
King, 8.
>>And goes home with almost
half a million dollars.
And our final six look like
this.
Bolek started as one of the
short stacks, but in the end, he
has all the chips.
When you’re playing no limit,
that’s the way it goes.
He walks away our winner.
Now let’s get back to the cash
game.
Jean-Robert Bellande leaving our
table.
And again, all these players in
for a 5K minimum buy in, and a
20,000 max buy in,
and they’ve been playing for
quite awhile at this table.
So, a lot of money has changed
hands.
>>Seen him take, really, the
most ridiculous beats.
>>Ken Aldridge, he goes by the
nickname “Teach”.
>>Raises with 6, 5 of hearts.
>>Oh, he won all the money?
>>Ah, no everyone else who
joined the game, Ellie lost, I
lost.
>>Matt Afflack folds.
Alan Richardson calls, suited
ace.
>>I mean, obviously whenever
money’s tough you’ll play a
little tighter, a little better.
>>And three handed, right?
>>Well, no. We’re actually full
for a while.
>>Dan Weinman calls from
his small blind with king queen.
>>But ah, yeah.
Some guy came, umm.
[CROSSTALK]
>>Phil Carson?
>>Yeah.
>>And Matt Russell will call
from the big blind.
>>Mortensen played a little
bit.
>>If you’re ever looking for
a good time, find Matt Russell
and find a Spanish 21 table.
Take my word for it.
Flop is five king six with a
couple of clubs.
>>We were playing two four, all
the limit games.
All the regular games and stud
was three six.
>>I like that, that’s good.
>>We went six, to three so I
get to do 150 right?
>>What happened?
>>You know that Greenbay game’s
crazy, they scored 37 points in
the first half.
>>Lot of money flying around
the table here.
>>It’s still 37 points.
>>You got a nut flush draw,
we’ve got two pair and we’ve
got top pair for
these players and nut flush just
came home for Alan Richardson.
Teech still with a full house
draw.
He’s not totally out of the
woods yet.
>>You told me betting the under
was the best bet of the week
earlier.
>>I, I also said that.
And it’s gonna be good.
>>Well thirty seven at half,
isn’t looking very good.
>>Really, the, the number’s
fifty five.
The entire world’s on the over.
>>It’s gonna go over.
>>Right.
>>We just need 3 touchdowns.
>>Eighteen points.
Is that gonna happen?
Yeah, yeah.
[CROSSTALK]
>>Bet from Alan is 1200.
>>I never bet sports, but I
have to take a bet on that.
>>To Dan who’s got top pair
and no club.
>>They scored 37 the first half
and they still got 21 minutes
left.
>>Hundred.
>>Okay you got it.
>>That’s crazy.
>>I’m telling you, the entire
world.
>>I never bet sports I can’t
help myself.
>>He calls.
>>The entire world’s on the
over.
[CROSSTALK]
>>And Teach will call.
>>They’re going to score three
touchdowns.
[CROSSTALK]
>>Weinman’s drawing dead as
we go to the river.
>>And that’s because it’s going
to go over,
>>So the river is a 3.
[CROSSTALK]
>>Richardson has the nuts.
>>Just need 3 touchdowns.
>>Yeah.
You said 18 points with that
teams is not [BLEEP] hard.
>>No.
>>Ken Aldridge bets 800 which
is tiny compared to the pot
size.
>>Teach, why’d you bet so
little?
>>I want you to call.
>>Last time you did that you
were bluffing.
>>Well raise me.
>>I don’t know about that.
[LAUGH]
>>Those are, those are fighting
words.
>>You just have the king of
clubs?
>>I promise you I’m not
bluffing.
>>I promise you have the king
of clubs.
>>I promise you I have better
than that.
Much better than that.
>>Much better than the king of
clubs?
>>Yeah.
>>Wait, you’ve got another guy
in.
>>Dan doesn’t mind keep
talking.
[LAUGHING]
>>He’s gathering information.
>>I’m gonna call whatever, so.
>>You sure?
>>Yeah.
>>What’s Dan gonna do?
>>I don’t care.
[LAUGH]
>>Well I may care.
He may have the “King of Clubs”.
>>I hope he does.
>>I hope doesn’t, then it’s a
bad thing.
>>I hope he’s got the king
four of clubs.
>>Ken Aldridge, who’s a WSOP
bracelet winner.
He won that in a six handed
event back in 2009.
>>How much is that?
>>800.
>>Alan Richardson doesn’t have
WSOP bracelet.
He’s got a nice watch though and
in this hand he’s got the nuts.
>>Raise.
>>Hmm.
>>>And here’s the raise to
twenty-four hundred.
Dan folds.
>>Twenty four. Wow.
>>Ken finds himself in a spot
that is, between a rock and a
hard place here.
>>And you thought I had the
king of clubs and you’re still
going to raise me.
>>You told me you had much
better than that.
>>I do. I do have better than
that.
>>Well I hope you don’t raise
me, then.
>>I’m not gonna raise you.
>>All right, it’s good, good
information to know.
[LAUGH]
[SNORT]
>>But I did say if you
raise me I’d call.
I did say if you raise me I’d
call.
>>You see about that one.
>>Geeze.
>>I’m glad I didn’t go all in.
>>Dinner can’t get here fast
enough.
>>I think that’s the first ever
Gavin snorting prop bit that
I’ve ever heard of.
>>I don’t have a King.
Do you have a ten?
>>No, no, no, no that’s not
what, you already told me that,
earlier.
>>What do you want to know.
>>You’ve got to give me
information above what you told
me.
You don’t have a King.
>>Above what I.
>>Do you have better than fives
and sixes?
>>The answer’s probably not
gonna be yes or no.
It’s gonna be a little more
complicated.
>>Oh.
>>Well, how?
>>I haven’t, I haven’t thought
of an answer yet.
>>Mm.
>>That’s bull [BLEEP].
>>Well Teach has already said
he’s not going to raise.
So the decision here is 1600
dollars whether you want to
call to try to win a 10K pot or
to fold and lose the pot.
You already said he’s not going
to raise, I’m going to take him
at his word at that.
>>You decline giving me more
information here.
If that’s the way it’s going to
be I’ll just call.
>>And there’s the call.
And in the end, the cards will
speak and
Alan Richardson is the one who’s
scooping the ten thousand dollar
pot.
>>Nice hand.
>>Thank you, but I will pay for
dinner now too.
So that wraps up day one of
cashier at Seminole Hard Rock.
And after the break, we’ll show
you the tallies of the wins and
losses, so stick around.

>>I’m gonna call, whatever.
I told him I was going to call
regardless of the raise.
I thought I had the best hand at
the time.
When he raised, then I knew I
didn’t.
It’s hard for me to go back on
my word even at the poker table.
He didn’t quite give me as much
information as he said he would.
[LAUGH]
But that’s okay too.
And he ended up buying dinner
for us.
Of course, I paid for it.
[LAUGH]

  1. What a dirty little angle from Richardson. I don't care if, "it's poker", that's a trashy move.

  2. Yet to see JRB have a winning session terrible player but good at moaning.
