Here is this weeks Ultimate Poker Challenge Recap.

Your hosts are still Chad Brown and Phil "The Unabomber" Lott.

Players this week vie for $8,000 in cash and a trip to the Bahamas.

Our players are: Michael Abdullah/Jason Buckley/Ned Shabou/Champi Douglas/Nikki Harris/Pete Ostrowski/ Max Pescatori (his 5th final table)

Hand 1: Champi raises to $1,200 with 7c 4s, Nikki calls with Ah Js. The Flop is 9-Q-7 all hearts. Champi bets $1,200 and Nikki Calls. Turn is A of Spades. Nikki goes all in, and Champi folds.

Hand 2: Jason raises to $1,800 with Ks Ac, Nikki re-raises to $3,500 with Kd As. Jason Calls. 4s/8c/2h on the flop. Nikki bets $1,500 to make Jason folds and Nikki takes two pots in a row.

Hand 3: Michael raises to $3,000 with As Qh, Champi calls with K-J of Hearts. 3s/Kd/7c on the flop. Michael goes all in, Champi calls. 8s on the turn and a 4h on the river to give the old heave-ho to Michael.

Hand 4: Pete goes all in with J-10 of Diamonds, Ned calls with Ah-Qc. The flop reads 10s 9h As, Turn is a 3 of clubs and the river holds a 8 of hearts and Pete goes out.

Hand 5: Nikki goes all in with 8c 8d, Ned folds with Ac Qs and Nikki takes the pot.

Hand 6: Max raises to $3,000 wiht K-Q of Spades, Nikki goes all in with Ah Jd. Flop reads Ad/As/Js The turn is the 10 of Diamonds and with a 9d on the river, Nikki doubles up with a full house AAA-JJ

Hand 7: Nikki bets $2,500 wiht Ad Kh, Ned calls with As 10h. Flop becomes Ah/10c/10d, and a Q of spades on the turn gives Nikki the feeling to go all in, Ned calls and knocks out Nikki with a 7 of spades on the river.

Hand 8: Champi calls with As Kd. Max checks with 3c 4d. the flop comes out 9h 5 and 2 of spades. Max bets $2,500, Champi calls. 7 of clubs on the turn and max goes all in. Champi calls and a 8 of clubs on the river sends Max home yet again. He is praying that he wins one of these things. Italians need the sunlight.

Hand 9: Ned calls with K-5 of Diamonds, Jason checks with 4s 4d. The flop is 5c 8s 2c. Jason goes all in with the worst hand and Ned folds to give Jason the pot.

Hand 10: Ned calls with 9c 10d, Champi Checks with 5-7 of Diamonds. The flop reads 9s/4s/10h. A 6 of hearts on the turn and Ned bets $1,600, but Champi re-raises it to $3,200. Ned calls. With a 3 of hearts on the river, Champi is the Champi-on of this pot. (I'm sorry for that very unfunny pun)

Hand 11: Ned raises to $4,300 with 10d Qs, Champi calls with Kc 8s. When the flop comes out Jd/10s/8d Ned bets $3,200 with Champi calls. When a 7 of diamonds comes on the Turn, Champi bets $4,500 with a call by Ned. a 9 of Hearts on the river makes Ned bet $4,500 and the pot with Champi calling.

If I had recorded this next hand and had capabilities to make a copy to my computer, this would make Video Wall. (C-Note: And I forgot to record it. My bad)

Hand 12: Champi calls with 5d 4c, Ned checks with 7s Jc. 8s/5c/3d on the flop Ned bets $5,000 and Champi calls. 4 of hearts on the turn and a $4,500 bet by Champi and Ned calls. A 7 of hearts on the river and we have a Split Pot. Now Phil Lott goes into a tyraid about them playing scared poker. It had to be seen to be believed.

Hand 13: Ned bets $5,000 with a Qs 10d, Champi calls with K-J of Hearts and Jason goes all in with 8s Jd. The flop reads 5c/10c/Kd on the flop K of spades on the turn and a 4 of spades on the river. Champi bets $4,500, Ned calls. Champi wins both pots and Jason is out in 3rd place.


Hand 14: Champi calls with 10h 3c, Ned checks and has never checked his cards. a Jd/2s/Ad on the flop. Ned bets $5,000, but Champie reraises to $10,000. Ned calls. 9 of hearts on the turn and a 10 of clubs on the river gives Champie the courage to go all in and to make Ned fold. What he had, we will never know.

Hand 15: Champ bets $5,500 with 10h 10s, Ned goes all in with As Kh. 9h/jd/jc on the flop Q of hearts on the turn and a 5 of clubs on the river and Champi is this weeks Champi-on (still not funny, hey I'm no Gordon Pepper)

Champi wins $8,000 to blow on the trip to the Bahamas and for DVDs for his portable DVD player, a take worth over $13,000.

That does it for this week. and as the Talking heads song says. It's a wild wild life. Good night everyone.
