This is Poker Night in America. (upbeat music) – Welcome to Poker Night in America where we conclude day three at Seminole Hard Rock. – [Joe] Coming up on tonight’s episode, Jennifer Tilly calls someone a really bad word.

– You are a mother– – You know the one, the Samuel L. Jackson one. – [Chris] Couple of players have joined us since we left last time. Esther Taylor in the two seat, and Michael Laake in the seventh seat. – [Joe] Esther sat down and got herself all in and lost before the cameras were even rolling. – [Chris] Yeah, none of the guys got the batteries in or started the gerbils or anything.

(Joe laughs) – [Joe] It looks like today’s game we’re gonna have a $200 button ante, which means only one player pays the ante, the player on the button. Eric Wasserson kicking things off with a straddle to 100. It’s a blind raise. – [Chris] Jennifer Tilly on the button raising with king, five to 300. (table laughs) – I got a top pair. Chillin’.

– [Joe] Jen says it’s her quest to win a big pot against Jason Mercier, and the two of ’em have decent stacks right now, so things could get kinda weird. – [Chris] Our first flop of the night brought to you by Kimo Sabe Mezcal is king, deuce, six. – [Joe] Jen flops top pair. Jason flops a flush draw.

Wasterson, nothing. – [Chris] 700 to bet from Tilly. Wasterson folds.

So we’re heads up with Jason and Jenifer. Three of spades. – [Joe] That’s gonna look like more outs to Jason to make a straight, unfortunately those outs will just chop it with Jen.

– [Chris] 1,200. – [Joe] Like the bet from Jen, not giving Jason a great price, but he’s got to call it. – [Chris] Sure does. So we’re off to almost 5,000 as we head to the river. An ace on the river.

– [Joe] Now unfortunately Jason’s now in a spot where he might feel compelled to bluff this. I say unfortunately because Jen Tilly can get kind of sticky sometimes. I do not know what it will take to get her to fold this king. – [Chris] We’ve not seen her fold a lot of hands so far at Seminole Hard Rock, especially to Jason Mercier.

– [Joe] So Jason bets 2,400. – I bet the flop, you called the flop. Bet the turn, you called the turn. I think you’re gonna fire on the river no mater what.

You’re gonna have me beat before the river. I don’t really think you have an ace. But I don’t have good luck with you.

I don’t have very good luck with him. – [Eric] Not many do. – I just really… Ah, I hate my life. I mean I kinda like it, but… Wouldn’t it be great if this is the one time I called you and you actually did not have a hand. That’d be fantastic.

– [Chris] Will she finally exercise the demons? – [Joe] Do it. No! – Good fold.

– ‘Cause Jason always has the best hand. – [Joe] Did you see how it took a second to sink in? – You make me so mad!

You are a mother(bleep). (table laughs) (bleep) I hate him! I can’t win. I hope you lose. – I hope you win, Jen. If it’s not against me, I hope you win.

– I’m gonna straddle. – [Chris] It’s Poker Night in America brought to you by Kimo Sabe Mezcal. – He does not hope we win. – I think that’s a bluff. – [Joe] Welcome back to the table, Jenifer Tilty. – I knew he was bluffing me, too.

But I’m so tired, I’m just battered. It’s like a drop of water dripping onto a stone. Eventually it makes a hole.

– Kyle! – Kyle if it was your turn, – Is this a straddle? – What would you do? – Restraddle.

– I straddled. – Make it 800. – Increase straddle.

– 700. – [Chris] Bowker makes it 700, with ace, king. – Does that mean you’re defending? – [Joe] Wasserson calling with queen, jack, suited. – I do so well against Jason, I’m gonna play every hand against him now.

– Uh oh, new player. – New shooter. – Oh Michael, nice to see you.

– [Joe] Not sure I believe her. It’s kind of like if she said it’s an honor just to be nominated. – [Chris] You say it, you never mean it. – [Joe] Right. – Wow, sick read. – The good ones never lie.

– Wow Jen, really? – Wow, Jen. – Yeah. – How are you not that angry? – What? – What if Jason had made it to 700?

– I still would’ve folded. – No. – I’m not that clever, I’m just not. – You got a really bad hand?

– Go from there. – Diamonds. – If I fold everything until seven o’clock, I’ll be up $30,000. – [Joe] Wasserson flop’s pretty good here. Now he’s just got to dodge his way to the showdown.

– Don’t engage me, don’t get me involved. Don’t make me angry. My original 10.

– [Joe] So Bowker’s C bet gets called. – [Chris] Bowker picks up a flush draw on the turn. – [Joe] Yeah, I said Wasserson was going to have to dodge his way to the showdown there.

There’s so much to dodge now. Wasserson can’t fold just yet, though. There’s plenty of hands Bowker would just be semi-bluffing with. – [Chris] And top pair, third kicker. Good enough for a call.

– [Joe] The riv … a fiv. Wasserson’s checked to Bowker. Probably looking to snap off a bluff.

Bowker’s probably got a pretty good idea that Wasserson’s got a top pair at this point. – How much? – [Joe] 4,500 is the answer to that question. Almost full pot. I think this is a pretty believable flush bet. – I wasn’t planning on folding.

– [Joe] Oh, it’s a good sign when your opponent who wasn’t planning on folding is now considering folding. So far so good for Bowker. – You show, I fold? – I don’t know what to do with that question.

I never know. You just want me to show or do you want information? – [Joe] It’s a great question.

– What do you mean? – Like are you asking just ’cause you want to see my hand? Or because you want to get a read off of me.

– No, I would to see your hand if I fold. – I still think you might be trying to get information. You win. – [Joe] Nice call, Eric Wasserson.

– [Chris] $14,750 on the nice call on the river. – Send 200 over here, bud. – You got it. – Even when you fought that hand, he wins.

– I know, he’s disgusting. – [Chris] How would you like to play against the pros on national TV? Download now to play and win. It’s absolutely free to play. It’s Poker Night in America with Joe Stapleton.

I’m Chris Hanson. Let’s get back to the game. – He does want to make you sad, you’re right.

– He does. He wants to make me sad. But I can’t combat, I can’t combat Jason. – [Chris] Joe, it’s day three. Heading home tomorrow, or are you gonna stay down here in south Florida and live the life?

– [Joe] I’ve been told I actually can’t leave the state until after the trial. – [Chris] Oh well, enjoy that. – [Jason] If you reraised pot– – You would not have been watching. You never muck. Jason never mucks to me. – [Jason] It makes sense if you see my hand.

– I cannot take Jason. I can’t take him. I can’t. – 13?

– Yeah. – I’m so annoyed. So, so annoyed. – [Chris] Flop is deuce, three, three.

– [Joe] Jen flops a gut shot, checks it. Man for playing six, four, suited after that flop, she’s not in a horrible position. – I check.

– [Joe] Two live cards, straight draw. Agreed. – I thought you were thinking.

– I thought you were thinking. – I am thinking. – [Joe] Jason’s out, Jen is in. – [Chris] And Jen’s probably thinking, “Great, “now I have a chance to win.” – [Joe] And she does have the best hand here on the turn. Pair of fours are good.

– [Chris] Let’s go a top pair, let’s bet it! – [Joe] Kind of tough to float here with king, queen just hoping to hit. Sure king high will be the best hand sometimes, but I don’t know how often.

– What are you doing some making a huge move in an alcoholic stupor? (table laughs) what the (bleep) is this? I have the best hand, I think. What?

Or maybe I don’t. You raised in early position? – [Kyle] I raised?

No, Jason raised and I raised again. – You raised again, and then I called. – [Chris] Well Jen has already declared that she does not want to lose any of the money that she has made, and so maybe the players are gonna try to take advantage of that, because there is nothing worse than once you get up to lose some of that money.

Then you just steam over that. – [Joe] That was a precious declaration. – This was a value bet. I’ll tell you right now, I don’t have a three, but I know you don’t have a three also. So the question is, who has the best hand?

– [Joe] Are you just now getting to that question? Jen folds another winner. – [Kyle] Do you have sevens? – Do you have eights? oh my God.

So annoying. – [Eric] Do you have fives? – I’m hoping to turn this around. I can’t afford the fun that is called Poker Night in America.

– [Joe] Michael Laake straddling. Ryan Fee, the first raise. – It’s called buried peak. – No, it’s called upstuck. Phil invented a term called upspuck. – I prefer upstuck.

– [Chris] I do too. Buried peak doesn’t make any sense. But then again, we’re not 24-year-olds who know it all. – [Joe] Wizards. – Wee, it’s so fun to be Jason. – [Joe] These guys are playing slightly different rules.

If there’s a big straddle on, you can only raise up to the pot, pre-flop. Pot limit, so Jason’s gonna get at few chips back. – He just wanted to isolate angry Tilly. How much is that? – [Joe] It’s domination nation and Jason is practicing isolationism. – God, I would love to beat Jason in a pot.

I would it, just love it. Love it. Jason, I would love to beat you in a pot. – How would you feel if you beat him this pot? – I would love it.

Okay, please don’t outplay me. I’m tilted, I’m angry. – [Chris] Flop is deuce, king, five. Oh my goodness, she has out flopped him.

– [Joe] The deuce’ll do. – [Chris] 2,300 is the bet, and we get a call. Let’s see the turn. Alright, Tilly’s still there. – [Joe] The tighter Jen hangs onto the ledge, the more Jason’s gonna stomp at her fingers. – [Chris] Oh boy, that’s a bunch of orange.

5,100 is the bet. And again, I think the players picked up on the fact, when she talked about how she didn’t want to lose the money she already had. They are wheeling and dealing with that knowledge right now.

– I think I have the best hand, but… – [Joe] It is red rag to bull. All they want to do is turn on the pressure until she folds. – I won’t get mad.

No, I promise, I promise. I won’t get mad. Honestly. I just really, really, really wanted to beat Jason in a big hand, but anytime I have a big hand he instantly folds. I don’t even get to the flop. And so I did not get the better of him.

Maybe in a few like dinky hands. I probably won’t even make it to the air. But I want to play with him again because I want to get the better of him another time.

But I saw you gulp. – [Kyle] Did you know you were value betting? – I was fake gulping. – Well it’s not a fake gulp. (Jason laughs) – [Chris] Poker Night in America is brought to you by our trusted friend: Kimo Sabe Mezcal.

Why settle for tequila? Step up to Kimo Sabe. Welcome back to Poker Night in America. Let’s get back to the table. – Oh, I thought you said Viffer.

– Oh, that dude with the blonde hair that used to play cash? He’s weird. – [Joe] He is weird, but he is also hilarious. – Dude’s amazing. – What can I make it?

– Pot, he makes a pot. – [Joe] So slight change of rules here. These guys are making it so that if there’s a big straddle on, you cannot move all in before the flop.

We’re gonna play pot limit, pre-flop. So Wasserson makes it 1,600. Action on Eta. Oh, and there goes the hand on the shoulder. This is the hot new tell they’re all doing. Usually means you’re not super comfortable.

– Oh you’re right, I was counting wrong. – [Chris] And ace, five, suited for Fee. – [Joe] Anytime your starting hand is a hand that can flop the nuts. You’re gonna be tempted to play a juicy, multi-way pot with it. – The good news is you don’t have to put it up to 200 to straddle.

Once you fold this– – [Chris] Wow, another raise from Fee, now up to 4,200 and they’re falling quickly. – If we lose our stack and rebuy, can we match the biggest stack on the table? – [Joe] For you Jen, I don’t think anyone’s gonna mind. – Awesome. – [Chris] Especially the biggest stack at the table. Alright, so Wasserson calls.

The flop is six, 10, four. – [Joe] Both players miss, ace high still best. Ryan Fee first to act. He was the last aggressor.

You would expect him to continue here. There’s the C bet, 5,000 into a pot of nearly 10,000. Big bet for Poker Night America, but only half this pot.

That’s what happens when there’s a triple straddle and a big raise before the flop. Pots get huge. Is Eric gonna feel like he needs to protect the money he’s got out there by calling and trying to hit on the turn?

He can pick up a diamond, he can pick up a straight draw. Those kings and jacks are still live. – [Chris] You say that, that’s the exact way I lose all of my money playing poker. You just described how bad I am. – [Joe] Some of the time you’re gonna be drawing dead, and Wasserson decides to make the wise decision this time. Little rabbit hunting, and that is a gigantic brick.

So I’m sure he’s feeling confident about his fold. Good fold, good fold. – Oh, you won? – Yeah, I won. I took it.

I took it. – She won. – Wow, I’m getting lit up on the props. – Unless that was Urban Dictionary, hold on.

– When will it end!? – [Jen] You’re supposed to get titled. I was yelling about how– – I mean it came up on Google as a word. – Yeah, it’s a word.

– Dispassionate? – Yep, that’s right. – Holy cow. – [Chris] Now just ’cause it’s on the internet doesn’t mean it’s true, right Stapes?

– [Joe] Well it’s been on my last five or six job reviews. – Not influenced or affected by emotions. – Oh, so it does describe you. – That’s him.

Look at who’s screaming and yelling, that’s me because Mr. Mellow. – Yeah, you’re dis-dispassionate. Is that word? – [Jen] What?

– Dis-dispassionate. Dis-dispassionate. You’re dis-dispassionate. – [Joe] Four ways to this flop. And it’s a good thing flops don’t hit back or this could turn into a real brawl. Everyone has hit something here.

Sorry, sorry Kyle Bowker. Sick needle. – [Chris] Laake bets 300, and then Wasserson makes it 1,000.

– [Joe] Jen Tilly called. One heart is good for her, two hearts is bad. Laake’s behind, but he’s not always going to be, and there are so many ways for him to catch up if he is. – How much is team black down? – I think we’re lighting him up in the prop.

– [Chris] Laake’s top two qualifies for a raise up to 3,500. Tilly calls for the flush draw. – That bluff that Wass took me off, and I’d be buried all the way around, right? – [Joe] Well there’s Jen’s one heart.

– I’d be dead, you said? – Team red would be dead if you didn’t me up on that bluff all the way around. – [Eric] I’m buried again. – What are you in for, a 20?

– [Eric] 25. – [Joe] Laake’s gonna keep betting top two. – [Chris] 5,200 to bet back to Tilly. – [Joe] And I’d really like a raise here from Jen.

Another heart would look bad, and it would be bad. – You’re stuck 25? – I’m all in. – [Chris] All in is the move for Jen Tilly.

It’s 15,200. That would be for the rest of Laake’s chips. – [Joe] And a call here makes sense. – Do you have a flush? – [Joe] Jen would be semi-bluffing sometimes.

– I have two pair of the queen of hearts. – Ooh. Stop, stop the pain!

I need a three of clubs. Well, three of clubs. – I’d rather you didn’t. – What? – This is a big pot. – [Chris] 39,000, to be exact.

– Small, small, small. Little dark one, I’ll give you $300. That’s good, that works. That’s for you, $300. Awesome. – [Chris] Oh, I thought she was talking to us.

I was really hoping that that 300 was gonna be for us. – Well then I’ll give you $300. – No, you can give it to him first. – Nah, nah that’s okay. – Wow, you had a trillion outs. If it was Jason, he would have got there.

– Four and eight is not out there. – [Chris] More straddling going on. This is getting ridiculous.

– [Joe] O-M-G. Look at all those strudels. It’s like I’m in an Austrian bakery. – [Chris] Which is your favorite flavor of the strudel that’s out there? I really like the $400 strudel. – [Joe] I like the Wasserson strudel. Hey, it’s the same one!

– If I knew you were gonna move all in with no hand– – Wish six, four, yeah. – Check, call. – [Joe] Jen Tilly.

Who would’ve thought on the last hand, she’s making it $6,025 with 10, seven, suited. – 6,000. – You sure you don’t want to have another hour of this game? (table laughs) – Goodness gracious.

Finally, some action. – [Joe] Not quite an all for for him since we’re playing pot limit before the flop, but that gets the message across. – It’s like 20K. – So annoying. I finally decide to play this game and… – I almost had them. Bought at the flop.

– Yeah, let’s see a flop. – I had jack, 10. – Really? – I would’ve seen a flop.

– Show it! (table groans) – Turn, turn, turn, turn. – [Joe] Michael Laake wins a gigantic pot on the last hand of the night without even having to see a flop.

– Jen, why do you do it to me? – What? What did I do. – You should have just folded.

You would’ve folded, I would’ve raised, I would’ve called. – What, did I raise? – Yeah, you raised. – Oh you mean I should’ve raised him? – No, you raised and then he rerasied. But if you just folded, he would’ve raised, I would’ve called, and I would’ve made a straight.

– Oh! So sick. – Do you remember the underpants you were wearing when you won the World Series?

– I did not have, I don’t think that, actually I didn’t have underpants on when won the Main Event. How about that. – That’s too much information. – You can fold 8 high now. – Wow.
