Today is

"Episode 2.49" - February 26

Last time, Dimitra Apostolopoulos took a deal of $95,000 for her case, worth $400,000. Now Ishmael "Tater" Brown is in the deal, as he is stuck with a banker's board and four cases to pick.

?

11

Ishmael's Case

With the choir in the stands, his next four cases...

1

$25,000

19

$400

25

$10

8

$100

Now this is a turn-around, because if you remember, the first round saw four big amounts go away. The banker responds in kind...

BANK OFFER
$55,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750

$ 1,000,000

Will tater take the money or open three more cases? No deal! Next three...

3

BANOODLES!

22

$750

17

$5,000

Another good round means another good offer... delivered by the choir...

BANK OFFER
$103,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750

$ 1,000,000

He could do a lot with $103,000, but he could do a lot more with $750,000. It's a dealer's board. The family says to keep going... With three big dogs left, he keeps going...

4

Last time, $50.

This time... $75

23

$1. Victory lap!

And Howie joins in. The next offer... "You've been very lucky to this point, but luck has to turn at some point."

BANK OFFER
$188,000

 

$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 500 $ 400,000
  $ 500,000
  $ 750,000

Think about what we have planned... family... kids... KIDS... Will Tater take the deal this time? The odds are in shamel's favor like no one's business. No deal!

16

$5.... 00,000.

The banker calls with no hesitation.

BANK OFFER
$157,000

 

$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 500 $ 400,000
  $ 500,000
  $ 750,000

With two huge amounts still in play, Is his chance at $750,000 worth $157,000? Last night, he made a message... to himself: "Let's take a deep breath. Two big dogs...  Keep going. One big dog left, take the deal."

Ish listens to himself. No deal!

12

$500

The choir has to sing on that one. With a 50/50 shot at six figures, the bank offers... More than a quarter million...

BANK OFFER
$261,000

 

$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 500 $ 400,000
  $ 500,000
  $ 750,000

Theoretically, he can get away with one more round, because a) there's a safety net, and b) he'll be turning down $261,000 to win another $490,000, possibly. The family wants another case, but they want even more for him to run his own game. "It's a lot easier playing online."

NO DEAL!

20

After a choir break... $750,000

Okay, time to consider this offer...

BANK OFFER
$92,000

 

$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 500 $ 400,000
  $ 500,000
  $ 750,000

That was a steep drop.

But in the end, he listens to himself. DEAL for $92,000.

But was it the right decision? Meghan M. had $10,000. Bank would've offered $182,000. In Tater's case...

$5

11

Ishmael's Case

A good deal. He came in, rode the wave, and got out just in time.

Next up... a man who matches Howie, suit, head, and all... It's WAYNE RAMOS! "Wayno" is a plumbing supply salesman and New York Yankees fan from Jersey. He's got seven kids and two granddaughters.

Youngest granddaughter told him to pick #2, so there you go.

2

Wayne's Case

And he wants Marisa to sit with the family. Okay, six cases...

He's gotta manage this game... and he's managed, via satellite, by Joe Torre, Yankees manager! "You came here to make some money, so you might as well go for it." He does.

6

$1,000

8

For Yogi... $200,000

25

$50,000

$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750

$ 1,000,000

"That's not going to pay for six girls." Joe tells him to deal with his wife. "Whatever you decide to do, I want to invite you and your family to come to a Yankees game as my guests this year." Sounds like a deal to me... but as for the money on the table... No deal.

We'll open three cases next time.
