Is it better to be lucky than to play well?
It's been eight months since the bad beat jackpot hit the Canadian casino. At that time, cash game with blinds of $1/$2 made over $1.2 million which was split among players. This time it is even more. The bad beat jackpot was paid out when one of the players on the river completed the royal flush against the quads of his opponent.
It happened in the early hours of April 27, exactly at 5:30 in the morning. The total jackpot was $ 1,375,265, which made the record so far at Playground Poker Club. Just to make things funky, last year's bad beat jackpot was hit at 5:20 pm, this time it was at 5:30 in the morning. At the table, nine players were seated at the $2/$5 cash game table, with five more NLHE tables in the casino.
The "unlucky" player named Kwane R, who held quads, won the biggest jackpot of $522,622, while sweat winner Daniel F received $261,311. The other seven players at the table each received a $37,328 bonus. And that's not all - all those who were sitting at the poker table at the time at the casino have received a $5,938 bonus.
And this is how the hand went down. Kwane R on UTG + 1 with QQ opened for $ 25, the other player called, as well as a cutoff player and Daniel F on the small blind with KJ, and the player behind him on the big blind. Five players went on the flop. AQJ came in. Both players on th blinds checked, Kwane shoved about $100 with a set of queens. Everyone but Daniel F folded. The turn was another Q, which meant Kwanea quads, but River 10 brought the royal straight for Daniel F.
