The tournament action is piping hot inside the Venetian Poker Room but the cash game action is going strong as well. The Bad Beat Jackpot is a source of excitement in any poker room and just a few hours ago, it was hit for $37,741. The bad beat hand that needed to qualify was quad nines and indeed, that is what occurred when the quads of Eduardo Nejaim “lost” to the quad aces of Anh-Tuan La.
La flopped quads but Nejaim went runner-runner to claim the $18,871 bad beat prize. La earns $9,436 for being on the other side of the hand as both players earn a large payday for their time in the Venetian.
