Biggest Names Eliminated At End Of Game Of Gold Round One

Episode four of Game of Gold saw some great poker as Jason Koon, Fedor Holz, David Williams, and Daniel "Jungleman" Cates battled it out in the final, mystery payout sit-and-go of round one.

The episode saw huge folds, hero calls, and multiple trips-over-trips as some of the best players in the world battled it out not for money or trophies but for pole position going into Episode Five.

Episode four also wrapped up the first week of Game of Gold and teased the upcoming week's action that begins with new teams in Episode Five.

The Fall of Team Clubs

Team Clubs' representative on the table, Koon, had a rough start. However, he turned it around with a lucky river catch against Cates and a great read against Williams that allowed him to pick off a big bluff.

Williams then lost much of what was left of his stack after doubling Cates up preflop with KJ against Cates's J10. Cates, who had been in a bad mood for much of the episode, cheered up for a while.

Koon was knocked back down to fourth when he shoved with kings, covering Holz, who called with AQ and hit the ace on the flop. No king rolled off to save Koon's hand.

An excellent laydown by Cates put him back in a bad mood. Although the fold saved Cates's stack, without the benefit of the hole cams, he seemed sure he'd made a mistake.

Koon left the game soon afterward, ending Team Club's hopes and taking three of the best poker players in the field with him. Cates followed shortly thereafter, leaving Williams and Holz to play heads-up.

A couple of worst hands made good for Williams knocked Holz out heads up, allowing Williams to take the top prize in the mystery round.

Counting Coins

Players need to collect coins to win the final prize of $456,000. Since each coin will be worth one big blind in the final poker showdown, earning coins now is vital. However, between now and the final, there are still several rounds of cunningly devised challenges that balance team competition and individual ambition in a Survivor style reality-TV format.

With the round one coins tallied, Team Spades came out on top, earning an additional 30 coins for each team memberGuilbert, Holz, Luther, and Carrel. Team Hearts took second, Team Diamonds took third, and Team Clubs took a cab home.

Then, with the team sit-and-go portion of the event over, the coins were tallied, and Ali Nejad called the contestants back to the main stage to set up round two.
