A poker hand that lost me a $17,300 potPosted by Jim Makos on Jan 4, 2010 in Blog, Poker Hands | 0 comments
Yesterday night I was playing cash games along with a couple of big tournaments at Pokerstars. One of the poker tables was a $5,000 No Limit and I was doing pretty ok, until I got dealt Aces on the button. I ran into Kings in that poker hand and in the end we pushed all our chips in the middle preflop. The poker hand’s pot reached 17 thousand dollars and I consider it to be my biggest bad beat in terms of money in my online poker career. Here is the poker hand where I lost my biggest ever pot.
PokerStars No-Limit Hold’em, $50.00 BB (4 handed)
Jimmakos (Button) ($8568)
Preflop: Jimmakos is Button with A, A
UTG bets $150, Jimmakos raises to $450, 1 fold, BB raises to $1000, 1 fold, Jimmakos raises to $2300, BB raises to $11771 (All-In), Jimmakos calls $6268 (All-In)
Flop: ($17311) 7, K, 4 (2 players, 2 all-in)
Turn: ($17311) 6 (2 players, 2 all-in)
River: ($17311) 4 (2 players, 2 all-in)
Total pot: $17311 | Rake: $2
Jimmakos mucked A, A (two pair, Aces and fours).
BB had K, K (full house, Kings over fours).
Outcome: BB won $17309
