Earlier in the afternoon yesterday, moments after the Mix Max Re-entry event kicked off the November Power Weekend, the $10,949 Omaha Bad Beat Jackpot was hit!
The action happened on table 15, a full 8-handed $2/$2 PLO game. The hand was straddled to $5, and after one caller jumped in, Steve raised it to $15. That bet did not scare many away: six players called!
The action was checked around to the raiser, who continued with a $75 bet, undeterred by the massive opposition. Joseph called. There was one more caller, followed by an all-in bet to $235. That bet was called once, then Steve put in his own stack, worth $302 at that point. Joseph stuck around, and so did the caller of the first all-in. Four players saw the turn, including two all-ins.
The action was quick. Check, all-in, call, locking the third and last pot of the hand.
Showtime. Steve opened , hoping to lose the pot. Sure enough, Joseph revealed the and the $10,401 BBJ was hit! For losing with quad nines, Steve took $5,201, and for beating that nearly unbeatable hand, Joseph took the 4-figure pot and $2,600. The other six players took $433 each.
And the November Power Weekend was in full swing. Congratulations to all players who took a share!
