The bad beat jackpot was hit at the Tropicana early Wednesday morning for around 217K.
Quad Qs over Quad 7s.
The person who had the losing hand was described to be a pretty big jerk. On the river when the board was 778QQ and the player with pocket QQ best all, but $3, he asked the dealer for a count.
He showboated and finally said, I'm all-in. Making the other person put in their final $3. Pocket QQs guys said, fine, I have a four queens. That's when the table erupted because the other guy had pocket 77s.
However, there is more to the story. Pocket 77s guy was a jerk all night. He threatened to beat up someone who beat him in a pot for about $200. Degraded and mocked people the entire time. He also enjoyed telling everyone how tough he was and lucky he was. He was annoying to say the least.
Here's when the fun starts.
When it was time to get to the cage and collect, pocket 77s walked through the Trop casino floor yelling and screaming: That's right! I won! I told you! God, wants me to be rich. God, wants me to be famous.
He gets to the cashier while two of his friends were with him. A few minutes go by while he is in the credit room and here comes five security guards walking over. They take him out of the credit room without any money. Take him to the poker room to collect his belongings and drop him off at gaming enforcement.
Apparently, pocket 77s guy was in violation of his parole by being in the casino that night. He was not allowed to be there.
His money was seized (all 87K) and he was left with nothing.
