    Typo in Lisa’s victory: she bet 10,600 (everything), not 20,600 to double her score to 21,200. Quite a comeback for the day and a contrast with her small bet on Monday’s show.

    This is my first time to post and it looked like it it didn’t go through so I tried again. I really enjoy the show and your helpful website.
