It All Comes Down to the Grand Finale Table of Six in GSN's Poker Royale: Battle of the Sexes

The Ongoing Debate Will be Settled ... The World's Finest Poker Players Call Each Other's Bluff's and Aim to Prove Who is the More Skilled Gender

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 28 -- The name calling has been done, sarcastic punches thrown, and the men have won every single previous match in the series -- it all comes down to the final table of six players in GSN's POKER ROYALE: BATTLE OF THE SEXES where on Friday, March 4 at 9:00PM ET/PT one gender will prove once and for all who is better skilled at No Limit Texas Hold'Em. Will the men blitz the women, or can the ladies strut their stuff and walk away with the title of the stronger gender and a cash prize of $130,000?

The men took the $10,000 pot in all of the previous six episodes. Now based on their performance in those episodes, the top three point leaders for the men and women will face off for the championship. The players who earned those spots are Kathy Liebert, Evelyn Ng, Karina Jett, Antonio Esfandiari, Layne Flack and Amir Vahedi.

According to Liebert, "Men think women can't play poker! Well, they're going to discover that under-estimating women is a big mistake. The male ego is going to be their downfall." She continues, "These guys think women are easy to read but we women know how to deceive them and they will fall right into our web. The guys are going down."

Layne Flack says, "If poker relates to anything like it does in life, then I am sure the women will beat us down far enough to where they may pull into the lead once in a while."

POKER ROYALE: BATTLE OF THE SEXES is hosted by radio personality Tom Leykis, along with co-host Kennedy, and color commentator and poker pro, Robert Williamson III. The previous six episodes winners include: Amir Vahedi, Antonio Esfandiari, Layne Flack, Paul Wolfe, Amir Vahedi (again) and Greg Raymer.
