Poker Night In America | Season 3, Episode 8 | Monopoly Money

– [Hanson] From
the Golden Nugget
in Atlantic City, New Jersey,
this is Poker Night in America.
– Welcome to Poker
Night in America.
I’m your host, Chris Hanson.
Park Place, Marvin Gardens,
Pennsylvania Avenue,
anyone who’s played
the board game Monopoly
knows these names, but
some viewers may not know
that they are based on street
names found in Atlantic City.
That is where we find
ourselves tonight
being hosted by
the Golden Nugget.
And while our players are not
playing for Monopoly money,
they are still definitely
trying to bankrupt each other.
So let’s place Go, and collect
$200 on our way to the felt.
– [Hanson] As we
continue Day 1 here,
the players bought in from
between $5,000 and $20,000,
and so far our biggest
winner of the day
has been Jessica Dawley,
and that money has come
pretty much directly
from Dan Shak
as we head back to the table.
Blinds are 25 and 50, and a
lot of players taking advantage
of the optional $100
straddle under the gun.
– Who the heck is
straddling over here?
– I straddle just so
it gets them excited,
everyone is like tired.
– You lawyers are
so aggressive!
– Lawyers!
– Give me a good coroner who
just sits there sort of…
– [Hanson] Jessica
Dawley raises to 325
with suited king-queen.
– Oh the bar is set
very low for being the
liveliest person at
the job everyday.
– Okay, let’s see if
the straddle was good.
Yeah, it’s fine.
– It’s a fine goal.
– It’s a fine straddle.
What are we… 325.
– [Hanson] And Linda
Kenney Baden will call.
– I know who Fred Allen is,
yeah, the friendly coroner?
– Wasn’t it Fred Allen who
had the greatest line about
television, he called it
chewing gum for the mind?
– [Hanson] Both Baden
and Dawley hit the king.
– That’s before I got really
good, which is now a half.
– [Hanson] And a
call from Dawley.
The turn is a four of spades,
so now Dalwey picks
up the flush draw.
Kenney Baden picks
up a straight draw.
They both check.
And Jessica Dawley
has the winner,
all she needs to do
is say, “I call”.
And that’s what she does.
And Jessica Dawley will
continue her winning ways
here on Poker Night in
America in Atlantic City.
– So Dan’s decided to straddle.
– Of course.
– Because he liked
the result last time.
– What could possibly go wrong?
– What could possibly happen
that you draw a
flop the top card?
– [Hanson] Christine Pilcher
who won her seat here
on 888 poker will raise
to 200 with ace-ten.
Wendeen Eolis will
call with ace-queen.
Dawley’s on a rush, she might
as well call with ace-deuce.
– [Hanson] Roeper calls, man
this is starting to look like
a cellphone commercial, we’ve
got so many people calling.
– What’s another buck fifty,
let’s get that in there.
– Dan’s praying that he has
anything that he can call with.
– Am I being punk’d that
everybody’s going in?
– We actually made a side deal,
we’re going to chop
your chips up later.
– God, I wish I hadn’t done
the loose crazy phase of my
attack on you all first,
because now I can’t raise here
with this (bleep) that
I’ve got in my–
Oh sorry, sorry.
I’ve got my hands, so I’ll–
– They can edit it later.
I just call and hope
to get lucky.
– I’m pretty sure he’s just
going to call after that speech.
– I just got to call and
get lucky.
Oh I just got to
call, or make a move,
maybe I make a
move on the flop.
Hold on, I’m going to try to…
– Seven players.
– I’m so bad, I
forgot what I had.
– [Hanson] And the case-ace
comes out on the flop.
So Eolis, Pilcher, and
Dawley all hit the ace.
Dawley hit two
pair, but the winner
in this whole
transaction is Pilcher,
because she flopped
top two pair.
I would expect a raise
here from Jessica Dawley.
In the One Seat.
And she does just that to 1700.
– Raise.
– Okay, all in, all in.
– It’s another 12 on top.
– So I have to call
1200 more, right?
– It made it easy
for me to say thanks.
– I thought once you put
your Chanel sunglasses on,
that I was hidden.
– Huh? (laughs)
– I have those too.
– Do you?
– Prescriptions.
– So now we have sneakers
and sunglasses to match.
– All in, all in.
– All in, awesome.
– You wanna run
once or twice?
– Twice.
– Twice.
– What do you have?
– I have an ace.
– I have an ace.
– I have two pair.
– I have two pair.
– Oh, you win.
– [Hanson] And now Pilcher
makes the full house
on the first turn.
So Jessica drawing dead.
So the worst that Pilcher
can do here is chop.
– I thought how is that
possible, Jessica doesn’t have
a set of deuces there.
– [Hanson] And things
are getting very thin
for Jessica Dawley.
And Christine Pilcher turns
ace-ten into a double up.
And a pot worth $8,300!
– She goes by the sword.
– Nice hand.
– Thank you so much.
– [Hanson] We’ve got more
as we continue the cash game
here at Golden Nugget
when we come back.
Poker Night in America is being
brought to you by
Where the world plays online.
– Welcome back to the Golden
Nugget in Atlantic City,
tonight’s stop on
Poker Night in America.
– [Hanson] Table’s seeming
to warm up a little bit
to one another as the
chatter is on the increase.
– [Hanson] Let’s see if
that does the same thing
with bet sizes as we continue.
– And I hope I show
those, and I needed to
create an AOL Instant
Messenger account, so–
– [Hanson] James
Woods with nines this
time makes it
one seventy-five.
– The Messenger account I asked
my assistant to do it for me
and it had something to do
about the way that I love
to drive Audi TT, and everybody
kind of laughed at me,
because it reminded them
of a little girl’s like
Instant Messenger
handle, and just TT.
My friends starting
teasing me and it just stuck.
– That’s cute,
that’s cute.
– Oh ma’am, your charger, the–
yeah, okay good.
– “Ma’am”… I like that.
– Well no, c’mon, I was
talking to you by the way.
– I thought you might be.
– [Hanson] Well three
sixes appear once again,
this time it’s Jamie Kerstetter
who flopped triple sixes.
– Thank’s ma’am,
thank you ma’am!
– [Hanson] Talk about
your big, blind special.
– Is there an
official etiquette
for calling someone ma’am?
– [Hanson] Now Woods
picks up a flush draw
to go with his pair nines.
– It was a very nice thing to
say, now I think it’s like–
– I think to call somebody
ma’am it’s like adept now.
– Ma’am.
Hello ma’am.
– Well if you say,
“Excuse me, Miss,”
then it sounds like
they’re 15 a little bit.
– Yeah, but someone older
that you call “Miss”
is very happy to
be called “Miss”.
– Maybe you’re on
the flush draw again.
– I get called “Sir”
way too much now,
I don’t want to get called
“Sir” so much, right?
– And “Sir” used to
be very respectful.
– So ace to the spades, you
might call it an ace of spades.
– [Hanson] Woods
thinking it over.
As the famous saying goes,
“If you think long, you’re
probably thinking wrong.”
– Okay, queen, there it is.
– [Hanson] And
triple sixes will net
Jaime Kerstetter 3200 bucks.
Of course on the
other hand of that,
if you think quick, you should
probably leave the table,
because you’re the worst
player at the table.
It doesn’t rhyme,
but it’s also true.
– Oof, nice hand.
(table chatter)
– But everyone else at the
table kind of knew that
something was going on, the
only who didn’t pick up on this
was Mike, and he was
trying to make it funny.
As someone who’s been
slow-rolled by Shaun
countless times (laughing)
why, because he loves me,
so it makes sense, you know?
It just didn’t work.
Even though,
intentions good,
– That acts as a call for 50.
– People in poker games
are very revealing
about their
personalities as a whole.
– That’s very astute, I agree.
– [Hanson] Back to Dan
Shak with his queens.
Now we’re going to 900.
– I was just about to say,
why’s this pot so small?
– [Hanson] James Woods,
and his suited ace-king,
and Jessica Dawley’s jacks are
coming right behind that.
Delicate spot here for Dawley,
you are on the button, so
you are going to get to see
what everyone does
after the flop
if you would call, but
she decides to fold.
– You don’t want to see?
– [Hanson] And of course,
hindsight is always 20/20,
that’s a great fold
(chuckles) by Jessica Dawley!
Shak hits the queen,
but Woods hits nothing,
so let’s see if he’s going
to take a stab at this.
– It’s fun flopping
top set, isn’t it?
Nice hand.
– What’d you say?
– I said it’s fun flopping
top set, isn’t it?
– [Hanson] And that’s
exactly what he did.
– I know what you got,
I know what you got.
– Well played, I turned my
hand face up.
– [Hanson] There’s more
Poker Night in America
when we come back.
– [Voiceover] Draft Kings the
official fantasy sports site
of Poker Night in Amercia.
– Thanks for returning to
Poker Night in America.
I’m your host, Chris Hanson,
let’s get back
to our cash game.
– But it’s not just about
being right or wrong,
it’s about being open to grow.
– Yeah I want to evolve.
– The unexamined life
is not worth living.
You know, Socrates.
– Unless they’ll sponsor us.
– But then they
should make everyone
take off their watches,
and everything else.
– So you wanted me
to hit a queen, huh?
– Who?
– Yeah, I wanted
you to hit a queen.
– I didn’t think I was
going to get any value
from a bet there.
– [Hanson] You’ve got a $100
straddled from James Woods,
that gets a call
from Richard Roeper,
it gets a call
from Kenney Baden,
and pocket nines showing up
again tonight on Poker Night.
Dan Shak will not be calling
the (chuckles) $100 straddle:
he makes it 500.
Action now on Jamie Kerstetter.
She calls with jacks.
Kerstetter another one of
those poker players that
when you start asking
her questions about
her life away from the table,
it really makes you realize
that you are outgunned in
so many different ways.
– Ahh, Richard,
Richard, Richard.
You’re the spoiler.
– He’s making a
break for freedom.
– 400 more?
– [Hanson] Now we’re talking,
we got a 2100 pot pre-flop.
– [Hanson] Kerstetter’s
jacks are ahead,
but Dan Shak has
the flush draw.
Jacks go to the muck.
And Woods once again,
thinking it over,
decides to go all in.
– Two times?
– You’re so far ahead,
you have no idea.
– You’re so far, “Can
we run it 12 times?”
– Twice.
– Yeah twice, yeah go ahead.
He’s on a flush draw.
– [Hanson] I don’t think we’re
going to have enough cards to
run it 12 times,
James, so here we go,
gonna run it
twice, and the first
one goes to Dan Shak.
And it looks like
the second one
is on its way to Dan Shak
as well… and it is.
– Well I have two
pair both times.
– Flush and full house.
– Whoa.
– Wow.
– Trust me, I
wouldn’t have called
if I hadn’t bet
so much in here.
– [Hanson] It looks like
James Woods is reloading
as Shaun Deeb stops
by the table.
– Katie, did you know this?
He lost his virginity
with Ashley, his wife.
– That’s so weird, that’s
who I lost mine to!
– With Ashley?
– That’s awesome!
– That is not a conversation
that your wife and
I have ever had.
– [Hanson] Shaun Deeb shows up,
and things just fall off
the rails, imagine that.
– We can do some editing
don’t worry.
– She did not tell me
anything, about any of that.
So I don’t want you to think
your wife is going around…
– Luckily she’s breastfeeding
now, so she doesn’t drink,
she used to tell way too many
details of our personal lives.
– She has not told me anything.
– That’s greatest
line of all time,
“luckily she’s
breastfeeding now,”
“she tells too many
personal details of
our lives to people.”
That’s fantastic.
– But she’s so sweet.
– Richard, have you ever
met Shaun Deeb before?
– I have.
– Oh good, good.
– Yeah, I’ve been
in Shaun’s world.
– That’s literally what
I was about to say.
– [Hanson] Back to the
poker, ace high flop
hits both Baden and Shak.
– So, you’re obviously
a media critic,
should I call it
a media critic,
or should I call
it a movie critic?
– Everything.
– Okay, that’s exactly
where I was getting up
to, so are you like–
let’s talk about food,
let’s talk about liquor,
let’s talk about spirits.
– No I don’t do that, I’ll
let you the experts do that.
– But are you a good eater?
– [Hanson] Dan Shak now has
two pair aces and sevens.
And Jaime Kerstetter
now has another draw
that she’s working.
– I appreciate,
but I know enough
to know that I don’t
know that much.
– That’s what I was wondering.
– [Hanson] And she
hits it on the river.
Kenney Badden
doesn’t want to put
any more money in this
pot, she checks.
– Actually the best tip I’m
going to give you for wine,
and everyone at home
should try this.
You don’t want to do
this with a $300 bottle,
but if you have a $85 bottle,
and you want to make the wine
open up, put it
inside of a blender.
Sounds crazy right?
– Really?
– Trust me.
– I’ll try that.
– Another really great trick–
– Always listen to
him about everything.
– Add a tiny bit of salt.
– [Hanson] A raise
from Kerstetter
quickly gets rid of Dan
Shak as we get wine tips
from Steven Mclaughlin,
and Shaun Deeb is right:
we should listen to
everything he’s saying.
Here are the results
as we wrap up Day 1:
Richard Roeper,
you’re down 150 bucks,
I’m guessing you’re going
to call the day a win
with the kind of great players
we have around this table.
James Woods made a couple
of bad calls today,
and he finds himself
10,000 short,
Jessica Dawley going to be our
big winner for Day 1 here at
Golden Nugget,
Atlantic City.
With over a 15k profit!
– When we come back, it’s
Poker Night At The Movies
with Ebony Kenney, Richard
Roeper, and James Woods.
Poker Night in America is being
brought to you by
Where the world plays online.
– Welcome back to
Poker Night in America.
Robert Redford and
Paul Newman’s chemistry
was so undeniable in Butch
Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,
it didn’t take long for the
duo to follow up with another
Hollywood classic:
1973’s “The Sting”.
Now, the movie gets its title
from that stinging moment
when you realize somebody has
conned you out of your money.
Something very familiar
to those of us who’ve
known the losing
side of a bluff.
In tonight’s scene, Paul
Newman goes head-to-head
with famous character
actor Robert Shaw,
in a game of who can
out-cheat the cheater?
This is Poker Night
At The Movies.
– Mr. Clemens, give
me $10,000 more.
– First of all, I’m
telling you, if I’m in
the middle of a hand,
and I decide, “Hey, give me
10k,” it’s not going to play.
If I’m so sure about my
hand, that I’m going to say,
“Hey give me some more money,”
99.99999% of the time, the
other players on the table
are going to be like no shot,
I’m not going to give you–
– Well this was the 0.00001
time that they allow it.
– Right, and he got egg
in his face, so there’s that.
– This is actually the moment
in the script called the
“all is lost” moment:
in every screenplay
at some point,
our hero gets to the point
where there is no way
he or she can find
redemption unless
the hand of God comes
in or something that
you don’t expect,
that he or she finds
within themselves,
that you don’t see coming,
makes the difference.
And in this case, of course,
you notice that Robert Shaw,
the villain in the
scene, actually hid
the deck in his napkin,
so the audience goes, “Oh
wow, he could switch a deck.”
So because if the threes,
the tres, the four threes,
all of the sudden become
jacks, the audience is going,
“I don’t understand what
happened,” but because
we showed a guy switching a
deck, the audience is going,
“Oh you know what, I bet
he switched the deck too!”
– The other guy
did too, exactly.
– The audience is being conned!
– Well the audience
is also being tutored,
but they’re being
tutored by being told,
in the beginning, when Robert
Shaw, the villain is like,
“Don’t worry, I
got this covered”
“I got the phony deck in.”
Now we’re thinking,
“Well gee, how can Paul
Newman beat him here?”
And then when the jacks
appear, the first thing is like
“Oh, he did the same
thing, only better!”
– If you’re cheating, you can’t
call out the other guy
for cheating and say,
“B-b-but we stacked the deck,”
“You’re supposed to
have quad threes!”
– Exactly.
– They can’t do anything.
And Paul Newman,
he’s not only playing
a little bit of a
doofus, he’s drunk,
he’s pretending he’s drunk
a little bit there too.
And it’s part of a longer
con if you see the movie,
there’s a whole other
con that comes later on,
I mean this scene is fantastic.
– Alright, so let’s rate this
now on a poker hand scale.
Ebony we’ll start with you,
how do you rate this scene?
– Honestly, just because it
got me, it totally got me
when he turned over the
four jacks, I was like
“Oh f– (beep) I did
not see that coming!”
okay so I’m going to
give it a royal flush.
– Alright, Richard?
– Well you know this is
one of the cool things,
James and I we were looking
at this kid, it’s like
it’s great to see somebody
experience a movie
they’ve never seen before.
My friend Roger used to say,
“I envy people who haven’t
seen Citizen Kane yet,”
“who haven’t seen great
movies yet the first time.”
– Because they do hold up,
especially cause this was
a great period picture.
– Yeah, it’s such a joy to see
someone experience
that their first time,
so I’ve got to go the
same way, royal flush,
I mean it’s a great scene.
– Yeah, I’d say royal
flush, but you know
because I’m so clever, I have
to say, I give this four jacks.
– [All] Ahh!
– Fantastic, and that was
our review of “The Sting”
here on Poker Night.
