Over A Half Million Paid Out In Atlantic City Bad Beat
January 18, 2022

Caesars Atlantic City made big headlines recently, when one amazingly unlucky hand (or amazingly lucky depending on how you look at it) finally allowed them to give out a progressive Bad Beat Jackpot so large, it set records.

The hand that did it, quad threes vs. quad aces, was lost by Delaware native Steve Gedney, netting him $276,979, the Emperor's portion of an incredible total jackpot worth $553,958 (the largest in Atlantic City history). 

The player holding the aces, New Jersey's Chris Dobrzanski, earned the second biggest piece worth $138,489 (along with the $400 or so originally in the pot), with the other 25% of the jackpot going to the seven other players sitting around the table- about $20,000 each.

"This is an unforgettable day for everyone at Caesars, especially our loyal players and dedicated poker team," stated Joe Domenico, the Senior Vice President and General Manager at Caesars Atlantic City.  "The energy building in our poker room over these past months has been incredible and to see it culminate in this record-setting jackpot couldn't be more rewarding."
