Jason Bishop, the longest surviving Junkie in 2018, was the first of the quartet to bow out Friday, with a losing hand of Deuce -7. "The worst hand in poker," he groaned.September 6, 2019 September 6, 2019 September 6, 2019
Cakes was next to go, busting out with a King-Jack of hearts against Ace-9.
We are at the second break. Bish and @moneymetalcakes have been eliminated from #JPO2019. @GlassJoeJP currently has 36,700 in chips. @EBJunkies with about 25,000. And now the donks are pouring back in for level 7. pic.twitter.com/NkK3OaHpBH— The Junkies (@JunksRadio) September 6, 2019 September 6, 2019

Buh-bye, Bickel. EB busts out with a pair of nines, up against King-10 suited. You're finished! Enjoy this special message from the Mediocre Poker host.
