Kenny Einiger Wins GSN's WORLD SERIES OF BLACKJACK II
SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 26 -- The cards were dealt and
the chips were on the table as professional blackjack player Kenny Einiger
became champion of GSN's WORLD SERIES OF BLACKJACK II, taking home the
tournament grand prize of $250,000.
Einiger played it very safe throughout the entire series, betting the
minimum during most of the games. The final table brought out the
professional in Einiger as he abandoned the safe play in favor of the all or
nothing approach that ultimately led him to victory against his opponents Rick
Jensen, Stanford Wong and Kami Lis. On the final hand, Einiger made the
largest bet and when the dealer busted, Einiger took home the spoils.
Einiger says, "Winning the 2005 WORLD SERIES OF BLACKJACK II was
tremendous! It's the culmination of my fifteen years plus of tournament play
and the ultimate for any professional." He continues, "I am very proud to be
representing GSN as their 2005 winner of the WORLD SERIES OF BLACKJACK II."
WORLD SERIES OF BLACKJACK II is executive produced by Paul Abeyta and
Peter Kaikko for Montana Productions.
