“Post Poker” Poker: The Final Showdown

One $10 bill–featuring former front-page New York Post mascot Alexander Hamilton–hangs in the balance. Given the paper’s switch to the billowing Stars and Stripes, maybe we should have made the jackpot a 37-cent stamp. But here we are: After four days of our head-to-head scratch-off competition, two rounds have gone to the Media Mob and two rounds have gone to the Daily Transom.

The final hands:

Media Mob K K 8 6 7

Daily Transom Q Q 7 6 4

The Media Mob wins! Game, set, and…well, set, anyway: 3 to 2. The World Series of “Post Poker” is over! No time for losers, Daily Transom!
