A Couple Quick Hits
The Harrah’s combined bad beat has climbed to $443,292 going into Thursday’s (Oct. 21) play and seems to be picking up about $4,000 to $5,000 a day. Wednesday was also the day the minimum bad beat hand goes down, so the minimum hand should be at quad fours.
The jackpot splits 50 percent of the money with all cash game players at any Harrah’s room — Harrah’s Resort, Caesars, Bally’s, Showboat — when it hits.
Needless to say, if this thing can hold out a couple more weeks, Harrah’s rooms will be packed 24/7.
And in some other news, Poker Stars has been running satellites for the U.S. Poker Championship at The Taj Mahal. Though the casino doesn’t have an affiliation with the online site, qualifiers for the $5,000 + $250 main event on Nov. 19 start as low as just a few dollars. For info go here.
