I hit the Mini Bad Beat Jackpot!!!
Tonight I was playing at one of the local casinos
that I frequent for a little $3/$6 Limit Hold'em with a kill. I've been running extremely well the last week hitting 2 high hand bonuses for $200 and $100 respectively, and up $650 total. So I was hoping to continue my luck tonight. And the casino just added a mini-bad beat bonus for Aces full beaten. (The winning hand and losing hand split the bonus, no money for the rest of the players at the table.) When I checked the board last week, it was up around $1500.
After sitting for about a 1/2 hour or so mostly mucking hands down $20, I finally got a good starting hand, AA's UTG. So here is the basic hand history:
SB posts $1
BB posts $3
Mo (UTG) raises to $6
Everyone folds back to the SB
SB calls $5 more
(Royal Flush draw on the board)
SB bets $3
Mo calls $3
SB bets $6
Mo calls $6
Mo bets $6
SB calls $6
Mo shows Aces full of Queens
SB says, "That's no good."
Mo says, "YES!!! Show me the winner!!!" And jumps from his seat doing a dance!
SB shows Quad Queens
Mo says, "YES!!! Bad beat bonus!"
Table says, "Uh Mo, check the board. It got hit a few days ago. It's only $77 now."
Mo says, "DAMN!!!"
Oh well, I guess $39 is better than nothing. Unfortunately that was the only hand that I won any money on tonight. I guess my run of luck had to end at some point.
