Just three days after a quad-over-quad BBJ hit, another group of players got their own BBJ experience! This one arose after a heads-up pre-flop showdown, as both players involved – two long-time Playground regulars – were holding some serious hole cards.
Just fifteen minutes after the table opened, the special hand started. Eric raised the pot to $10. The button made it $30 to go, and after Roland called from the small blind position, Eric shoved his whole stack. The player who placed the $30 3-bet reluctantly got out of the way, and Roland called for an effective $78.
The flop was very promising, missing only one card to unlock the Bad Beat Jackpot. That card appeared right away, allowing celebrations before the board was completed.
The amount of $25,394 was shared by the seven players present, awarding $12,697 to Eric and $6,349 to Roland. The other 25% was split among just five players, who got $1,270 each.
Congratulations to all winners!
