New York poker pro Anna Khait was last night’s elimination on the 32nd season of Survivor, the casualty of a tribe swap on the show that can be viewed as more or less a bad beat.

She was the fifth person voted out of Survivor Kaôh Rōng, telling Parade.com: “[I]n this game, there’s a lot of twists and turns. There’s a lot of skill required, but there’s also a lot of luck, just like in poker. You have to balance how to make the best decisions, and sometimes, there’s just nothing you can do but try your best. I fought for my life and they didn’t show some stuff, but I really fought. It just so happened that it didn’t work out in my favor, and that’s OK. It happens sometimes. You learn and you move on.”

Khait spoke to Card Player earlier this month about the parallels between the reality TV show and the game of poker, which she plays full-time for a living.

Despite the early exit, Khait was already one of the fan-favorites of this season.
