2 Months, $2 Million Profits Dwindle To Just $35,100

Week number 5 of the popular G4 poker reality show saw the guys suffer their worst loss yet with the team taking a collective hit of $128,000 to their bankroll.
The beginning of the show saw Roberts consoling Rosenkrantz in the spa after his successive losses while the two single players, Dani Stern and Emil Patel, headed to the Playboy Club at the Palms where they entertained two young ladies while running up a tab for $5,000.
Meanwhile, Roberts hit some high stakes Pot Limit Omaha action on Full Tilt against a dangerous table consisting of Phil Ivey, GusHansen, Urindanger,luckexpress10, and DIN_FRU. Roberts got off to a good start and took down a pot of $15,000 before Gus Hansen helped himself to an $80,000 pot and dampened the boys spirits once more.
While Roberts took time to cool off after the huge hit, the culmination of losses were beginning to take their toll on Rosenkrantz who announced, “I think I’m going to go home and get my head on straight,” and promptly headed off to his mother’s house in Commack, New York.
The next day Roberts, Patel and Stern  whisked their dates away on a helicopter ride followed by a high class meal at CUT at the Palazzo with Patel picking up the $1,800 restaurant bill after losing at credit card roulette.
Roberts was now ready to pick himself up after his recent loss and took on luckexpress10 heads up at both Omaha and Hold’em but only succeeded in furthering his losses to $104,000 and said,”Losing always hurts more than winning feels good,” before quitting for the night.
Week 5 results revealed that each member of the team had either lost or effectively broken even, with Rosenkrantz up $1,000, Stern down $2,000, Patel down $16,000, and Roberts down a crushing $111,000. The week long loss of $128,000 meant that the boys were now back to Week 1 profit levels of around $35,000 with the goal of reaching $2 million in the next 4 weeks all but a distant dream.
The show ended on a high note with Roberts’ penalty stunt giving him an opportunity to practice his stand up comedy skills at the Four Queens club while using his house mates as a source of many of his jokes. Rosenkrantz seemed buoyed by the night out and said: “I was really burnt out on Vegas and an poker, but being here tonight made me realize there’s nowhere else I’d rather be this summer.”
