One million dollars doesn't come without a fight, and so far, the Aces have made sure of that. Who'll be the first to put it all on the line against a tough foe playing heads-up? Time to Face the Ace again!

First up, a tax attorney from Seattle, here's ANDREW WEINSTEIN. He looks like Jim Cramer, but will be boo-yah all over the poker table?

His $40,000 ace first is the Ace of Clubs... a 33-year-old poker pro from Las Vegas... and was named 2008 WSOP Player of the Year. He is... E-dog, Erick Lindgren!

$40,000 ROUND: Erick "E-Dog" Lindgren

Andrew starts with 10-5 off, betting $1200. Erick calls with K-J off. Flop: 2-8-A. Andrew bets, and Erick folks. Andrew wins $3900.

Erick has K-10, and bets $1000. A-K for Andrew. He raises. Another $3900 for the tax attorney.

Andrew raises with A-6. Erick says take it. Another $1600. After the break, Andrew lead, $20,400 to $19,600. Blinds go up to $400 and $800.

Andrew steps it up with 7-3d to Erick's 5s. Andrew gives it up. We're back even.

K-2d for E-Dog for $2000. Andrew reraises for 6s. $8000 to the contestant.

Andrew picks up 6-2s and raises. Erick is all-in on A-9. False alarm for the crowd as Andrew insta-folds.

Erick has 6-4s. Andrew calls with A-5. Flop: 3-3-K. Andrew bets rainbow. Erick calls. Turn: 6d. Andrew bets some more... and Erick gives in for $8200.

Andrew has Q-6 and tosses it. Erick does the same one hand later with 7-3. For the third straight hand, the players have a lot of junk.

Then Ali comes in with $1000 and $2000 blinds. Erick hits 7-6 and throws it away. Andrew finally hits something: A-7, making it $6000. Erick's all-in with A-4. Andrew insta-calls. A 28% chance at a tie. FLOP: 8-A-10. Up to a 64% chance at a tie, but Andrew has a 7 kicker. Turn: 8c. Chop it up.

Erick's all-in with K-Qd. Andrew has A-10. Right now, the qualifier is in front, but if he loses this hand, he loses the match. FLOP: A-7-3. TURN: 2h. Andrew has $32K now.

Andrew has J-5h. Erick is all-in with 6s. FLOP: K-Q-6. Erick flops a set of 6s. TURN: 9c. Andrew needs a 10 to win $40,000.... it's a 7, and Erick doubles up to $16,000.

Andrew folds the next hand. Erick then goes all-in with Q-7. Andrew calls with A-6, the best hand. FLOP: 5-4-10, two clubs. TURN: 8c. RIVER: Jc. Andrew wins $40,000 on an ace-high flush!

Now comes the big decision... Will Andrew decide to take the money and run or play a second Ace for $200,000? Remember... If you lose, you lose everything. HE'S GOING FOR IT!

Andrew chooses the Ace of Diamonds... a long-time pro... The $200,000 Ace is... JENNIFER HARMAN!  Andrew's somewhat of a fan of hers, but now they're rivals for $200,000.

$200,000 ROUND: Jennifer Harman

We start with $100,000 a pop, blinds are at $500/$1000.

Jen has 5-2 to Andrew's A-4s. Flop: 8-Q-5. Jen bets $4000. Andrew raises .. and Jennifer folds it. He gets $28,000.

Jen raises on 10-8 to Andrew's Q-9. Flop: J-Q-5. Jen bets. Andrew calls it. Turn: 3s. Jen bets again. Andrew calls again. River: 9h... That hurt. Andrew has two pair, but Jennifer hits a straight. She wins $64,000.

Andrew tosses J-3 next hand. Jennifer picks up pocket kinds. Andrew raises on A-7. Jennifer reraises over Andrew's reraise. Andrew calls. Flop: 10-6-Q. Andrew folds it, and Jennifer takes the pot. Currently she holds a $151K to $49K lead, with Ali raising the bar to $1000 and $2000 a hand.

Andrew plays 9-8 to Jen's A-2. Flop: 7-3-6. Two way straight draw for the qualifier. She folds, and $15,000 goes to Andrew.

Andrew raises on A-9. Jennifer raises with A-Kh. Andrew goes all-in. Jennifer calls. Andrew needs to get lucky. FLOP: 5-2-Q. TURN: 6h. Andrew needs a non-heart 9. RIVER... 8h. GAME OVER. Jennifer wins with a heart flush.

Next qualifier is a futures trader from Bethesda, MD... ADAM DRESCHER. He has been playing for 6 months. Will that be enough to take down the first Ace?

Adam picks his first Ace, the Ace of Diamonds for his two kids. From Las Vegas, the 2009 National Heads-Up Poker Champion... the Ace of Diamonds is... HUCK SEED!

$40,000 ROUND: Huck Seed

Each player gets $20,000. Winner gets $40,000. Qualifier gets the button.

Adam folds the first hand. $1200 on 10-3s for Huck. Adam throws that one again. Adam... not willing to mix it up. He finally hits a hand and goes all-in with 10-9 against Kings for Huck. That's the bad news. FLOP: 3-7-2. TURN: 9s. He's got five outs, a 9 or 10 on the end. RIVER... 3. Huck wins on kings up.

Face the Ace returns December 12. We'll see you then.
