Losing with quad 6s never felt so good for Alok Arora (Charlestown, WV), who is Borgata's latest Bad Beat Jackpot winner.
Arora takes home $20,001 because his 6♦ 6♠ was beaten by Herbert Stolls (Jamaica, NY) who hit a straight flush holding 7♥ 8♥ on a board of 7♣ 9♥ 10♥ 6♥ 6♣.
"A miracle just happened," says Stolls, while on the phone with family. "I just won $10,000," his share of the $50,000 mini Bad Beat Jackpot for winning the hand.
The other seven players in the hand split $20,000 and earn the table share of $2,857.
Norman Michalek (Westfield, NJ), one of the lucky seven and usually a tournament player, debated about playing in today's 11 am event, but decided to play in the $2-$5 cash game instead.
The main jackpot resets to $164,859 and the next next time the jackpot hits the all time total paid out will top $15,000,000.
