Pick a Con... Any Con (#1.19)
4 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Coach got conned by a guy whom he believed out of a lot of money. Sam wants to help him and bails out the well known in the bar con Harry to help them out. They arrange a poker game but Harry keeps on losing. Sam figures out that Harry and George are working together so they arrange a last game when Coach acts with George. But George ends up losing all the money and Harry comes back to give it to them as he was playing with Coach.

Great episode. I knew from the start that Harry was on the right side, as the character is very likable. But it was still a pleasure to watch how they had those little twists in the game. As well as the whole trick Harry pulled with the drink under the hat.
