For the third time in Playground Poker Club history, a Bad Beat Jackpot surpassing $1,000,000 has been won! This time the Jackpot had grown to a whopping $1,249,643, and the action went down in the early hours of the morning on table 14, a $2/$5 table.
Maxime B was playing the button in seat 2, and seats 4 and 5 were the blinds. Preflop, Steve D (seat 7) called the bb, seat 8 folded, and seat 9 raised to $30. The player in seat 1 called, Maxime called, the sb folded and the bb and Steve both called.
On the flop, the first two players to act checked and seat 9 opened the action with a bet of $55. Seat 1 folded, and Maxime followed with a raise to $175. Seat 5 folded – and then Steve raised all-in for just over $575! Seat 9 folded – Maxime made the call!
With the action closed, the turn and river were dealt: and
Time for the showdown:
Steve: for Quad Nines
Maxime: for a straight flush to the Jack!
And the celebrations began!
The total payout amount for the Jackpot will be $1,187,160, of which $474,864 will to to Steve D as the Jackpot winner (loser of the hand) and $237,432 (and the pot) will go to Maxime as the Jackpot “loser”. The table share (8 players at the table) is $39,572 and the room share will be approximately $6,595 (estimate based on 9 players at each of the 4 remaining tables. Congratulations to everyone!
