Order of Play:
  • Weez - 4
  • Gypsy - 56
  • Alduin - 57
  • Argus - 98
  • AJ - 102


Weez has a low card and figures she'll grab her point earlier rather than later, swiping Row 4.

Gypsy and Alduin were bound for the old row 3 and land there as expected. Argus and AJ were headed for the old row 4, but find themselves behind Gypsy and Alduin on the new row 4, filling it up.

The single-digit Row 1 beckons, and four out of five players surveyed chose to fill up Row 1.

Alduin ignores the crowd and heads for Row 3.

Order of Play:
  • AJ - 12
  • Argus - 67
  • Alduin - 69
  • Weez - 71
  • Gypsy - 75

AJ decides to grab the last 1-point row while he still can, swiping Row 2 and surprising anyone between 47 and 63, which is ... no one.

The other players head for Row 3 where thanks to Aluduin's rebel play last turn, there are only 3 spaces for 4 contestants. When the music stops Gypsy is left without a seat, but with 5 points to take on vacation. Couldda been worse.

There's an illusion of safety on Row 3, as it's a 2-point bust and there's a 1-point row available.

But Alduin shatters that illusion, deciding the extra point is worth it to have two wide open low rows available. He snags ROw 3.

This leaves AJ landing on the new Row 3 and collecting 7 points, while everyone else follows along.

There's room for four people on Row 2, and four out of five players surveyed chose to go there.

Gypsy plops herself onto Row 3, filling it up as well.

There's more than enough space on Row 1 for anyone with a card under 36, and three players take advantage.

Argus And AJ resign themselves to the inevitable -- well, for one of them. AJ gets lucky as Argus falls on his sword first.

Order of Play:

  • AJ - 59

  • Weez - 101


Alduin is the only player choosing to bust this round, swiping 2 points from Row 2. That leaves the next three players destined for the new Row 2 with only one space on it.

Gypsy gleefully slips into that last spot, upping the point total to a sweet 16 just in time for AJ to claim them, with Argus following behind with a huge sigh of relief.

Weez, meanwhile, finds herself alone on Row 3, claiming 6 points.

Lots of empty space now, if you can spread out...

Order of Play:

AJ and Argus both aim for the Row 3 bust, but AJ earns the point.

This leaves Alduin and Weez taking the last spots on the new Row 3.

Gypsy knows she's stuck with the 7 points from Row 4 anyway and decides her odds will be better taking them now...

Order of Play:
  • Argus - 42
  • Alduin - 43
  • AJ - 51
  • Weez - 52
  • Gypsy - 76


AJ and Argus are joined by Alduin and Weez in aiming for the Row 4 bust, with Argus claiming the point.

Gypsy's tactics end up irrelevant as she's stuck with the old Row 2's 7 points anyway.


Scores for the hand:

Alduin 4
Weez 7
Argus 9
Gypsy 19
AJ 25
