Last night at 11:40pm, eight PLO players had the joy of hitting a huge Bad Beat Jackpot! The PLO BBJ had not been hit for a while, and our lucky players got to share a cool $48,047.
It all happened on table 16, where an 8-handed $2/$2 PLO game was being dealt. On that hand, two players were sitting out, leaving six in the arena. The action started with a call from the under-the-gun position, immediately followed by a raise to $10. This amount was just right for everybody, and just like that, a $60 pot was created.
Three players checked to the raiser, Loic D, who supported his pre-flop aggression with a $35 continuation bet. Vincent K was next to act and called. Marco T, sitting on his immediate left, brought it up to $200, a chunky bet even for this game. Everyone that had not invested on the flop yet got away, leaving three competitors at the turn with a nice $660 pot to shoot for.
Hello! Can you see it coming? Loic and Vincent checked to Marco, who threw in $55, the rest of his belongings. Both players called, evidently.
Loic check folded to Vincent, and both remaining players opened their cards.
Both players stood and hugged, more than happy to cash in the nicely built PLO BBJ. Vincent’s share was $12,011, while Marco, the star of the evening, cashed $24,024 for losing with quad eights, the bare minimum required to unlock this particular Jackpot! The other six players logged on table 16 got $2,002 each. As they say… ship it!
