Back from the casino, WHAT A NIGHT!!!
I dont know if any of you are familiar with jackpots they have in the poker rooms, but If you have a certain hand that gets beaten, you win a jackpot. I won $3,800, and my buddy that beat me got $1,800. Everyone that was sitting at the table got $315. Not a whole lot of money, but I am pretty stoked. Time for bed. WOO WOOOOO!!!!!

Did you get high hand? I got a straight flush playing hold em'. I won 811$ but no one else got anything.
How did this work, where everyone else won along with you?

It's called 'The Bad Beat'. It's essentially a relative $ payout after a showdown where the losing player has a hand which is equal to or above a preset hand (set by the House), yet was still beaten. Winning player takes the pot and the house pays both players a share of the bad beat.
<4 cards on the board: 9 10 9 K >
Player1: Holding 9 9 (Holding 4 of a kind, 9's)
Player2: Holding K K (Holding 3 of a kind, Kings)
<5 cards on the board: 9 10 9 K K>
Player1: Holding 9 9 (Still has 4 of a kind, 9's)
Player2: Holding K K (Now holding 4 of a kind, Kings)
So in this case if the Bad Beat is defined as a 4 nine's or better then both Players are paid. If the Bad Beat was 4 Jacks, then there would be no payout becasue Player1's hand is not good enough. Poker makes my head hurt...

Now all you've got to do is resist the temptation of going back again and blowing it all because you think you're on a "winning streak"! Go and invest in a kick ass cycle, or if you're not into that, 3 or 4 months supply of supps!

I went to Morongo out by Palm Springs. Not all casinos make you use both cards in your pocket, but this one does. I got the high end payout, or the "bad beat". I was dealt pocket kings and raised before the flop. When my buddy called I knew he had a good hand cuz hes a pretty good player. On the flop comes Js Qs As, and I was pissed, cuz obviously im beat. My buddy bets it and i raise him, the other 2 in the hand fold, and he calls. On the turn comes an ace, and i am like "GOD ****IT!!!!", he is about to bet and i say "what are you doing!!!", so he looks for a second and realizes whats going on, then he checks to me. Then on the river comes an ace, he checks, I look straight at him and say "Show me a jackpot hand." He nonchalantly throw over AK, I stand up, and threw down my hand so hard i thought the cards were gonna go through the table. The hot ass asian dealer just looks for a second and mutters, "Jackpot", and the loudest roar youve ever heard errupts. The table was cool as hell, just a bunch of bros my age. I gave that hot dealer a hug from behind
