This past Wednesday April 6th was another two-jackpot day at Playground Poker Club! First, the Primary BBJ was won at about 3:30 in the afternoon on Table 5, a $1-$2 table, and later that evening the Secondary BBJ was won as well! As the day begun, the Primary Jackpot sat at $250,000 while the Secondary Jackpot was, as always, fixed at $25,000.
The Primary BBJ saw a very rare straight flush over straight flush hand develop as the two players in the hand started with
. The flop gave both players their flush draw:
, and it was unknown to them, but each of them had a draw to a straight flush as well. Both players made their flush on the
turn, and all of the chips in each players’ stack were wagered at that point. The river was magical - the
gave one player his gutshot straight flush while it was also the top end of his opponent’s straight flush… and no matter what, a straight flush losing to another straight flush is always a Primary BBJ!
The payout for the loser of the hand (straight flush to the 8) in the Primary BBJ was $95,000, while the winner of the hand (straight flush to the Ten) won $47,500. The other 6 players at the table each took home $7,917, and the final 20% of the jackpot is shared amongst all of the other NL Hold’em players at a table when the Jackpot hand occurred.
Next came the Secondary BBJ. The Secondary BBJ is fixed at $25K and only requires that a player (playing both cards) loses with at minimum a full house of Aces over Kings. The hand in question was quite a bit bigger than that, however - a straight flush (diamonds) to the
beat Quad Tens! In this hand it was the turn card that proved to be decisive - the
completed the gutshot straight flush draw while also giving his opponent his Quad Tens.
The loser of the hand won $11,875, the winner of the hand won $5,937.50, and the other players at the table each earned $989! Congratulations to those winners!
Congratulations to all of the winners on Wednesday!
