Another Caesars Bad Beat Hit
A few days behind on this one, but The Caesars Combined Bad Beat Jackpot has hit yet again, keeping up a trend of hits that’s starting to border on ridiculous.
The jackpot hit Sunday, Oct. 30, at 9:43am for $178,842 at Caesars. That means the combined jackpot has hit eight times since early August and hit three times in October alone.
As usual, we have only cryptic info from Caesars, apparently home to the most paranoid poker players on the planet, as to what went down.
Here’s their report.
“The player (once again unidentified) who thought he had the winning hand laid out his straight flush, only to experience a bad beat when the other player (also unidentified) flashed a higher high straight flush and the win.
The losing hand earned $55,442 while the player who had the winning hand added $37,557 to his wallet.”
By the way, not giving your name in press releases won’t fool the I.R.S. or anything.
In addition to the 25 Caesars poker room players, 23 fellow poker players at Harrah’s Resort, Bally’s and Showboat each received a payout of $1,789 as part of the pooled jackpot. Obviously, an early Sunday morning hit led to fewer players to split with.
The jackpot is now at about $111,000, and being Wednesday, the minimum should have dropped down to four jacks.
Of course, the high minimum doesn’t seem to matter. The jackpot has been hitting every two to three weeks regardless.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
