Two six-figure Bad Beat jackpots hit at Harrah's Philadelphia

30 October 2013

PHILADELPHIA -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Harrah's Philadelphia has just announced two Bad Beat Jackpots hitting three days apart.

The top-rated Pennsylvania poker room paid out over $442,860 in winnings, combined on Oct. 23 and Oct. 26, to 15 different players featured at the table during the Bad Beat Jackpot hits.

"With two different Bad Beats hitting three days apart, the electricity in our poker room is incomparable," said Ron Baumann, senior vice president and general manager of Harrah's Philadelphia. "I would like to send my sincerest congratulations to the 15 players that took part in last week's winnings, as well as to the hundreds of other players that have claimed their share of the $2,897,725 in jackpots we have given out since the Bad Beat's inception."

On Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 3:10 a.m., the total Bad Beat Jackpot of $253,274 hit at one of its Texas Hold'em poker 1-2 no-limit tables to Total Rewards loyal poker player Isaiah J. Stout. Beside Stout winning $126,637.08, the hand’s actual winner, Duane Mitchell, earned $63,318.54, while the table’s remaining 6 players each took home $10,553. Stout, of Philadelphia, PA, thought he had the winning hand when he laid out his quad 10s, only to experience a bad beat when opponent Mitchell, of Miami, FL, flashed his straight flush to the ten and secured the win. Three days later, on Saturday, October 26th at 4pm, the Bad Beat hit again, as 7 players claimed their portion of the $189,586 jackpot. The losing hand of quad 10s paid Joseph Blackman, of Wilmington, DE, $94,793 while Helen Zacco, of Havertown, PA, took home $47,396 with her winning king-high straight-flush.
