Although Rachel failed to properly proofread her xeroxed resumes she does get an interview for her professional dream coming true as an assistant buyer. Meanwhile Phoebe's baseless feminist suspicion that the boys' poker night is somehow a macho conspiracy leads to the girls insisting to participate. Teaching them poker rules is like explaining rocket science to Joey, so the girls loose crushingly. Competitive Monica demands a rematch, after advanced lessons from her experienced aunt Iris. Finally, it comes down to a duel between Ross and Rachel, but she gets a call first: the buyer job fell through.

When Ross and Rachel are squaring off at the end, Rachel wins with Ross giving the appearance that he's thrown in his hand without revealing his cards. Joey and Chandler scramble to look at his hand as Ross tries to prevent them from doing so. However, moments before, Chandler and Joey are standing right behind Ross and clearly see what cards he has. Therefore, they would have known what cards Ross had. See more
Okay, Joey, your bet.

Oh, I'm out
