Segment Eleven

Michael Ian Black and Norm go head to head and we get our first taste of just how big of a douche Michael is. Norm takes so much time deciding whether to play or not that Dave Foley comes out from the production booth to spur the game along.

In a three way match between Jeremy, Michael, and Norm... Jeremy and Michael check, leaving Norm wide open to steal another pot.

Jeremy Sisto running low on chips goes all in and becomes the third victim of Normís excellent playing and luck.

Michael goes all in and uses a cheap shot to get Norm to fold.

1,038k

Segment Nineteen

With identical hands, Michael goes all in and Norm makes the same old mistake.



845k

Segment Twenty

On the next hand Norm finally rejoins the game and goes all in. Michael calls (withholding the David Copperfield picture this time.) With an 86% chance for Michael to win, a river card is dealt that puts Norm on top and keeps him in the game.



379k

Segment Twenty-one

Michael goes all in and Norm folds once again. The announcers are starting to get incredibly annoyed at Norm.



1,110k

Segment Twenty-two

On the next hand the blinds get raised to five and ten thousand dollars, Norm goes all in, and Michael calls. With 54% chances for Michael to win before the flop, Norm gets flopped a lucky card and he runs away with it.



641k

Segment Twenty-three

With Michael almost out of chips, heís automatically all in. This time the flop falls in favor of Michael and he stays alive.



728k

Segment Twenty-four

Michael is automatically all in again with a poor hand. With 96% chance to loose on the River hard, he gets a lucky card and wins the pot.



260k

Segment Twenty-five

Michaelís good luck continues as he gets dealt a pair. Immediately going all in, he effectively scares Norm enough to fold. Michael now has the chip lead.



384k

Segment Twenty-six

Both players get dealt poor hands but Norm goes all in. Michael takes a while to think and then folds.

With Norm having slightly more money, both players go all in. Again, the cards fall in Michaelís favor.



1,167k

Segment Twenty-eight

Michael gets dealt a King/Six. Norm gets dealt a Queen/Six. Both players go all in. Norm needs to see a queen dealt on the table.... but doesnít get it. He loses the tournament to Michael Ian Black and is gracious in defeat, but noticeably annoyed.
