$43,737.00 Bad Beat Pot Hit at Eagle Mountain Casino

Ben Ennis, from Bakersfield Ca., went to visit his favorite casino on April 9 to play some Texas Hold’em and have some fun. As Ben played Hold’em at Eagle Mountain Casino, he got into a very interesting hand with Herman Cabeje from Porterville Ca.and the two ended up getting a share of the Bad Beat pot of $43,737.00


Ben had been playing poker for almost four hours when the dealer dealt him pocket Kings (K, K) and then dealt Herman pocket Tens (10, 10). The dealer turned over the flop - Ace, Ace and a King; the turn produced another Ace; so now Ben had Aces over Kings a Full House and Herman had Aces over 10,s a Full House. Now Herman could only win the hand with a 10 on the river.  The two were waited for the river card with great anticipation when the dealer finally flipped over a Six – no help. Thus Ben’s Aces over Kings Full House “Bad Beat” Herman’s Aces over Tens Full House and a share of the Bad Beat Jackpot at Eagle Mountain Casino.


“The minimum Bad Beat hand at Eagle Mountain Casino is Aces over Tens which Herman had, it then needs to be beaten by a larger poker hand,” said Tyson Gibson, Table Games Assistant at Eagle Mountain Casino. He continued by saying “the Bad Beat pot is split 50% to the losing hand ($21,868.00), 30% to the winning hand ($13,121.00) and 20% to the remaining players at the table (4 – players $8,747.00).”


“I was in shock,” said Herman of his good fortune. “I yelled out Bad Beat – Jackpot; it worked out well for all of us.”


“More winners and more ways to winner isn’t just a slogan at Eagle Mountain Casino, it is our promise,” said Jim Valencia, Public Relations Coordinator.


Eagle Mountain Casino is a full service casino and is owned and operated by the Tule River Tribe. It is a short drive from Bakersfield or Visalia, Ca.
