    Anyone else think it odd that Susan only bet enough to ‘tie’ if Amanda had bet it all? With the ‘new’ tiebreaker policy that could have been a major faux pas.

      I did notice that and was surprised by it. Especially considering a trailer’s propensity to bet it all, I definitely don’t think it was the correct play.
