David Gallagher took a king-high straight flush into battle against Anthony Nicodemo's quad kings on Sunday, January 19th, to crack a bad beat jackpot. The game was $1/$2 No Limit Texas Hold'em at Harrah's Philadelphia and the pot erupted with a massive payout of $183,623.

The biggest share of the jackpot went to Nicodemo, a local from Philadelphia, PA, and he took home $91,811. Gallagher hails from Ridley Park, PA, and his share was $45,905. There were five other players at the table and their share came to $9,181.

"2013 was a tremendous year for Harrah’s Philadelphia poker players striking it big with our Bad Beat Jackpot, with this latest hit its seems that 2014 could possibly even be bigger," said Ron Baumann, Harrah’s Philadelphia Senior Vice President and General Manager in a press release. "Harrah’s Philadelphia would like to congratulate all the players stationed at the poker table at the time of the hit on Sunday, as well as the hundreds of others who have cashed-in since the Bad Beats’ inception."

A division of Caesars Entertainment Corporation, Chester Downs & Marina, LLC, owns Harrah's Philadelphia. Big poker jackpots are part of the picture at Caesars Entertainment.
