Poker priest update

In October, we told you about Father Andrew Trapp, a South Carolina priest who won $100,000 during the PokerStars.net Million Dollar Challenge game show. The money was donated to his parish's church building fund.

Well, here's an update: Father Trapp failed to win the $1 million grand prize. He was defeated by New York City firefighter who was among the first responders during the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. Father Trapp told the Myrtle Beach Sun News: "It's going to be a very emotional show because even after people see Mike knock me out, they are going to start rooting for Mike. He's a Sept. 11 hero. I think we all are going to be cheering him on, everybody across the country."
