ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (June 28, 2013) – On the first official summer weekend in Atlantic City, the Bad Beat Jackpot struck again at the Tropicana Poker Club. At 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2013, the jackpot was triggered and nine players split a jackpot total of $271,681.51.
“The players were gathered around a $1-2 no limit table, with $435 in the center pot,” said Steve Callender, General Manager at Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City. “John DiSantis was on the edge of his seat when he caught four nines on the river. What he didn’t realize was that another player at the table, Carlo Valente, was sitting comfortably with an even better hand – a nine high straight flush.”
