$90,000 Bad Beat Jackpot Paid Out to grujo_grujo
Nobody likes losing a huge pot, especially with four jacks in their hand, however, a massive cash reward for such a bad beat is a nice way to start recovering. And that's exactly what happened to PartyPoker player grujo_grujo who received a $90,000 bad beat jackpot. The hand was played a couple of weeks ago with grujo_grujo putting $100 in the pot with four jacks. Unfortunately for him, his opponent was holding four kings and grujo_grujo lost the hand.
However, when checking his account later he found an extra $90,000 there. It was then that he realized he triggered the bad beat jackpot. PartyPoker's Dany Willis caught up with grujo_grujo – find the full interview in the PartyPoker Blog.
