Default Won The Foxwoods Jacket

Woo-hoo!! Hit a royal at 1-2 NL last night and chose the Foxwoods WPT Poker Room windbreaker. They didn't have the hoodie fleece in my size and I didn't want a Hard Rock gift card, gas card, or cheapo chip set.

Effective stacks ~ $340. Villain is a drunk in the BB who has been cut off and has been taking forever on every decision.

I'm MP1 with QJ

UTG limps, 2 folds, I raise to $15 (pretty standard for the table), MP2 calls, folded to Drunk who calls, limper folds. 3 players (pot = $49 after rake)

Flop: K 8 T

Drunk checks, I bet $25, MP3 folds, drunk calls. (pot = $98)

Turn: A

check check

River: 3 Absolutely the worst possible card, yet...

Drunk bets $75 and has about $600 behind (yes, drunks do win sometimes)

Meh, since I doubt anybody calls any size raise any more frequntly than basically never, I ship it for $225 on top of his raise and try to look as nervous as I can. Drunk takes somewhere in excess of 5 minutes, stacking and restacking his chips and finally folds A 7

No complaints. His river bet was a gift.

So you didn't have to go to showdown to win the jacket. Interesting, I'm pretty sure that the bad beat jackpot at the local poker room here has a rule that you have to go to showdown to win the jackpot.

Congrats.

BBJ you have to go to showdown. The royal just has to be shown at the table.

If I were at Mohegan that night its pretty safe to assume I wouldn't have gotten a royal.

"Balls, said the Queen. If I had 2 I'd be King."

Yeah, IMHO Foxwoods does have looser players. I'm going to Mohegan next week and then Foxwoods next month...hope to see you there.

It's not (obv), I was just saying that from what I've seen if the house is giving out a prize, either for a BBJ or high hand or royal, that usually you have to go to showdown to win the prize.
