Full House loses to Straight Flush, Twice, for $400,000 total pot
The partypoker LIVE series in the Bahamas is now in full swing. A plethora of high-stakes buy-in tournaments run round the clock from November 15 to 24, including the $250,000 Super High Roller Bowl Bahamas. With such extravagant tournaments, there's a high chance some outrageous stakes will appear somewhere.
One particular nosebleed cash game at the 2019 partypoker Caribbean Poker Party brought what most would consider as one of the worst ever bad beats that the poker world has seen so far.
partypoker LIVE owner Rob Yong posted a video clip of a $400,000 pot via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. The footage showed a completed board wherein a player with Q-9 (clubs) went all-in on a Q (spades), 9 (spades), 9 (hearts) flop versus an opponent who flopped an open-ended straight flush draw with his J-10 (spades).
The players agreed to run it twice. On the first runout, 8 (spades) showed on the river. On the second board, the K (spades) came on the turn, giving the underdog both halves of the pot thanks to his straight flush being able to overcome a full house.
Rob Yong did not say who was involved in the table or which players possessed each hand. Jean-Robert Bellande was also at the table as he also shared his own video showing the same hand.
