Card Sharks
Card Sharks Description:

Contestants had to guess if the next in a series of cards would be higher or lower than the previous card. To get on the board, two contestants had to predict how many people in a survey of 100 answered a question a certain way. The champion player went to the bonus round. Starting with $200, the player wagered money on whether the next card would 99 be higher or lower. The last wager was the "Big Bet," where the player had to wager at least half of the money.
