Last night at 12:50AM, the Secondary Bad Beat Jackpot hit on a $2/$5 Hold’em table. This is the first poker Jackpot produced by MILLIONS North America frantic action. As we know, the increased traffic during a festival never misses to cause a good number of Jackpots to hit. Last year during MILLIONS, no less than SIX JACKPOTS were hit… in 6 days! Let’s hope we surpass that tally in 2019. Let’s take a look at the simple play-by-play that spread $25,000 on table 9:
After one player limped, Frederick Seiffert raised to $20. George Finkelstein called the bet, and so did 2 more players, including the limper.
Three checks took place before Vladimir Georgescu-Mangiurea placed a $75 bet. Frederick, the initial raiser, called, and George went all-in for $106. Both players involved in the action called.
On the turn, Vladimir pushed $200 forward. Frederic shoved his own stack for $346 effective.
And the river is… !
The good old Jackpot 1-outer came on the river! The Secondary Jackpot represents a fixed amount of $25,000. After the 5% was taken out for staff gratuity, $11,875 went to Frederick, while George received $5,938, and all witnesses got a table share of $848.
Congratulations to all, and stay tuned for the next Jackpot… it should be a short wait!
