It's not secret that I absolutely love seven-card stud. It's by far my favorite poker game. I loved when the Borgata decided to promote the game and try to get more players.
For the record, I'm not 70 years old either.
The stud bad-beat jackpot was hit at the Borgata. Here's more from Borgata's poker site:
On Saturday, December 4 at 9:30A, the Borgata Stud Bad Beat Jackpot hit for $5,000.
Robert Mion (Paramus, NJ), with Quad 6's lost his hand to Mark Barile (Pittsfield, MA) who had Quad Queens. Mion took home $2,000, while Barile won the hand and took home $1.000.
The other four players seated at the table each took home $500:
EVANGELOS POLLATOS (EAST NORWICH, NY)
WAYNE MASCIARELLA (ATLANTIC CITY, NJ)
ANTHONY HILL (EGG HARBOR CITY, NJ)
PANAGIOTIS RALLIS (MONROE, CT)
