The first day of October has produced the first Bad Beat Jackpot of the Fall!
In the early hours of the morning on October 1, the jackpot hand was dealt at a $10/$25 auto straddle table. It started with a raise from the button to $325 from Naspie W. Malibu, a well-known high stakes player, put in a raise to $925 from the small blind. The action folded around to Williams who made the call.
Following the flop, Malibu checked and Williams put out a bet of $500, which Malibu called. On the turn, Malibu took the same line with a check-call, calling Williams’ $1,500 bet. And once again on the river, Malibu checked and Williams made a hefty bet, this time for $3,900. But there was no calling on this street. After a little while in the tank, Malibu raised all in for roughly $10,000, which was met with a snap call from Williams.
Williams instantly tabled his , but Malibu made the table wait for a few seconds before delivering the good news. Malibu rolled over , and everyone at the table understood what had just happened. They won a $104,167 jackpot!
Williams, as the loser of the hand, will receive $52,083. Malibu will take the winner’s share of $26,041, and the other five players at the table will divvy up the remaining $26,041 for $5,208 each. Congratulations to all!
