Just got home from the local Casino. Busted out of the $100 Freezeout in 12th place (top 10 pay) and was going to go home, but decided to play $1/2 NL for awhile since the game looked pretty good. I buy in for $200 and within 90 I'm sitting on about $450. Limped to me on the button and I make it $10 with 8h8d. 6 callers. Flop comes Kh-9c-8s. Checked to me and I bet $20, 2 callers then guy to my right minraises. Only real draw is J-10 here, so I just call as do the other 2. Turn is 8c. Everyone checks to me and I check behind. River 7c. Guy in EP leads for $30 all fold to me and I make it $80, hoping he calls. To my surprise, he pushes all in (for another $120 or so) and I quickly call tabling quad 8s. He quickly turns over Jc10c for the rivered straight flush. I lose the pot but win the big bad beat jackpot for $4917. I ended up playing til close at 4:00am and cash out a total of $5550. I've been at a table before, but never involved in the bad beat, so it felt pretty good to get this one. For the rest of the night, it made for such a great game, winner of the hand got almost $2500 and everyone else at the table just over $700. FUN NIGHT!
