Horseshoe Cincinnati pays largest Bad Beat jackpot

Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati paid out $270,000 yesterday in the largest Bad Beat jackpot of any poker room in the history of the Tri-State area. A Bad Beat occurs when a very strong hand is beaten by an even stronger hand, both of which are typically rare to achieve.
Gary Costa of Cincinnati had the losing hand of quad 7s, which allowed him to take home $108,000, the lion’s share of the Bad Beat jackpot. Cincinnati resident Michael Humphreys had the winning hand with a jack high straight flush, giving him a $54,000 cut of the jackpot. Each of the other six players at the table received $18,000.
“This was an incredibly exciting day for the local poker players,” said Jason Newman, manager of Horseshoe Cincinnati’s poker room. “Paying out the largest Bad Beat ever in the Cincinnati area, it’s a rare occasion that players buying into a game for $100-$200 get to walk away $100,000 richer.”
The Bad Beat jackpot at Horseshoe Cincinnati’s World Series of Poker room had been growing for more than six months, topping the region’s previous Bad Beat jackpot record.
Horseshoe Cincinnati’s 31-table World Series of Poker room is one of the largest in the Greater Cincinnati area. It hosts live poker action around the clock with No Limit and Limit cash games such as Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha, 7 Card Stud and Razz. Weekly and monthly poker tournaments are also offered.
The poker room will host the Queen City Classic March 13-24. More details about this new poker tournament will be announced soon.
Horseshoe Cincinnati hosted its first World Series of Poker Circuit event last September, with a Cincinnati resident winning the main event in the 12-day tournament. That winner will advance to the World Series of Poker Circuit National Championship at Caesars Atlantic City in May.
