Poker players split $332K jackpot at Venetian

Poker players at The Venetian split a bad beat jackpot worth $332,000, the casino said Tuesday.

Here are the details, according to the poker room’s Twitter account:

Adam Lister made a straight flush with the five-four of hearts on a board that contained the eight-seven-six of hearts, but he lost to Yusuke Sawauchi, who made a higher straight flush with the ten-nine of hearts.

As the loser of the hand, Lister received $166,000. Sawauchi got $83,000, and the other six players at the table split an additional $83,000, netting $13,834 each.

The Venetian required quad nines or better to be beaten to qualify for the jackpot, which builds through a promotional rake that is taken from each hand played in the poker room.
