PartyPoker.com’s Bad Beat Jackpot hit twice last Sunday giving a combined payout of over $675K.
The big winner was Norwegian FriendlyFrog who picked up $276,268.29 after seeing his quad Jacks beaten by Germany’s Rolf 56111’s quad Aces. The German collected $138,134.14 with two other players at the 10c/25c table winning almost $69,067.07 just for being in the hand.Commenting on his lucky break FriendlyFrog said “Normally a pot of $30 is considered a fairly large pot in my games. To win more than $276,000 is something I have not even dreamt about (well maybe I have since I play the jackpot tables…) On the hand I flopped 4 of a kind Js (J 10 J on flop), and checked the flop. The other player in the hand also checked. An A came on turn, and we both checked again. Another A on the river, and my opponent made a small bet. I raised to get something from my hand, he re-raised, and I went all-in. I was surprised to see I actually lost the hand, and I did not actually think of the jackpot until I noticed the pop-up window. Wow, my heart nearly stopped”.Just hours later the jackpot hit again. Sweden’s Dickson_AA collected $60,926.88 after his pocket 8s ran into bitterbittor’s KK on a 8-K-3-8-K board. Bitterbittor’s quads earned him $30,463.44. Four other players also picked up $7,615.86.
