The Horseshoe Poker Room Bad Beat Jackpot got hit a short while ago, paying out over 100 players in the room their share of almost $60,000.
Right before the last break of the Day 1 flights, the Horseshoe Poker Room erupted into cheers. The cheers were not for the release of the prize pool or even a free RunGood t-shirt giveaway, but for the Bad Beat Jackpot.
The Horseshoe Poker Room participates in a room share jackpot program, meaning that when a bad beat eligible hand gets hit, all players at a jackpot eligible table get their piece of the pie. It was a delicious slice for the 113 players seated at the right table as they earned their part of the nearly $60,000 pot.
The hand in question was the classic runout of pocket nines flopping quads, and then getting caught up to by pocket queens on the turn and river. The player with the nines earned herself $17,905 while the player with queens gets $11,937. All other players in the room get $264 just for being in the right place at the right time.
Poker can be fun sometimes and the energy in the room during the hand of the night was palpable.
