Just because there are a lot of Jackpots hit during big poker festivals doesn’t mean that’s the ONLY time they are won. A regular Wednesday night is clearly a fine time for a Jackpot as well – just ask the players on Table 3 in the Original poker room.
The table was full and the button was on seat 5 when the action began. The player in seat 6 had just sat down and chose to buy the button, putting in the small and big blinds, and the cards were dealt.
The first two players to act both folded, and then Mohamad A in seat 9 limped in. After one more fold, the remaining players all called and there was a check to close the preflop action. The flop was dealt with 6 players still in the hand.
Action checked around on the flop, and then the turn was dealt: .
The first three players checked, and then the player in seat 3 bet $10. After two folds and a call, the bet was raised to $20 and there were two calls. The dealer laid out the river card: .
Mohamad A (seat 9) led out with a bet to $32, and then Patrick L in seat 2 raised it up to $75. Action was back on Mohamad, who shoved and got an instant call from Patrick.
Patrick: – flopped Quads!
Mohamad: – runner-runner straight flush to the Jack!
The secondary jackpot is fixed at $25,000, with 50% going to the loser of the hand (Patrick), 25% (and the pot) to the winner of the hand (Mohamad), and 25% shared between the remaining players at the table. Congratulations to all!
