Famed comedian and actor George Burns won the bad beat when his straight flush of hearts, three to the seven, was tripped up by Larry Small’s heart straight flush from the five to the nine.
Isn’t that always the way?
Ok, it’s possible—make that absolutely positive—that this George Burns isn’t that George Burns who appeared in all those movies and TV shows. Especially, since that George Burns passed away in 1996 at the age of 100.
This George Burns, however, wins a nice $88,608 jackpot for suffering the bad beat while Small wins $44,304 for winning the hand.
Seven other players win $12,658 just for being at the table.
The Borgata Bad Beat Jackpot has paid out $1.2 million in 2014 on 12 hits.
The full jackpot reset to $149,575 with the Small Bad Beat Jackpot at $37,394. The $50K Bad Beat Jackpot Frenzy will restart when the small Bad Beat Jackpot reaches $50,000 again.
