Mint Bad Beat Jackpot toppled

Mint Bad Beat Jackpot toppled

Thursday, 17 February 2011

In the wee hours of 21 January, the denizens of the Bluff card room at the Mint suddenly became very rich due to the statistical improbability of quads running slap-bang into a straight flush.

Harry Robertson-MaCleod, a 21-year-old Geography student, was the main beneficiary of the bad beat jackpot, scooping £14,292 when his flopped quad eights got cracked. All the money went in on the turn, with the board showing 8d7d8h4d and Mint regular Wahba Mourad holding Jd10d. “I have an out,” cried Mourad and… boom! Odds anyone?

Mourad picked up £7,146 for hitting his one-outer, while the reaming lucky punters on the table split the remaining 25%.
