In a fine way to usher in spring, a couple of ducks ran into two snowmen on a $1/$2 Hold’em table to bring about a Bad Beat Jackpot!
It started with a call from under the gun by Ernest B, which initiated a series of limps until the action reached the small blind, where Fabian E put in a big raise to $7. Everyone who had put chips into the pot called the raise, which led to a seven-way hand. On the flop, the action was checked to Michel D, who made a bet of $17. This bet drew a call from Richard G and chased most others out of the way. But, when the action came back to Ernest B, he moved all in. Ernest’s raise prompted a three-way all in, as Michel and Richard followed suit and put their stacks in the middle. The dealer then revealed the turn and river. It was time for showdown… Who would win? Everyone at this table!
Ernest tabled for quad twos, and Michel showed for quad eights; they hit the Bad Beat Jackpot! Ernest will pocket the largest share of the jackpot for his losing hand and receive $11,875. Michel will get $5,938 (as well as the pot), while everyone else at the table will receive $848. Congratulations to all!
