Feeling Lucky About Kings Leads Me To Nice Little Poker Score At Hollywood Park
So last night, still feeling high as a kite thanks to the Kings' dominance and feeling extremely lucky in general, I took a rare trip to Hollywood Park to play some poker. $100 at a $3-$2 game.
After having my AJ cracked by a flush on the river, I was down to $26. Down to $18 (and being out of this hand), I witnessed the unthinkable; a straight flush beating a straight flush. One player had 56 of hearts, the other 10J of hearts, board was AJ987 with the 789 of hearts.
This triggered a $10,000ish "Bad Beat Jackpot" in which the loser won $4000ish, the winner won $2000ish, and the six of us at the table out of the hand won $700 each!
While waiting for the jackpot to process, I turned my remaining $18 into $248 at the table. Upon receiving my jackpot, cashed out $900 ($800 profit) and tipped the dealer the difference.
Thanks Kings! :danc:
