Lock Poker Bad Beat Jackpot

Player 'Vigtastical' was dealt pocket 10's while player 'jap1234' woke up with pocket Q's as the Lock Poker Bad Beat Jackpot hit for just shy of $300,000 on Thursday. 

A third player raised pre-flop holding Ad Ks and both 'Vigtastical' and 'jap1234' called.  All other players folded so the flop was dealt.

It came down Qc, 6s, 10h which gave 'Vigtastical' a set of 10's and 'jap1234' a set of Q's.  'Vigtastical' checked the flop while the player with AK bet out. 'jap1234' called the bet, however 'Vigtastical' raised substantially forcing our AK friend to fold.  'jap1234' pushed all-in but 'Vigtastical' had him covered and called the re-raise.

The cards were flipped and both players saw where they were.  Set over set wasn't looking good for 'Vigtastical'.

The turn card was dealt and the miracle case 10 fell giving 'Vigtastical' quad 10's and the lead.

The river then fell and it was the final Q giving 'jap1234' quad Q's and the hand.

I'm sure 'Vigtastical' cursed at his screen for all of 0.001 seconds until the chips started raining down and all players realized what had happened.

Player 'Vigtastical' won $286,076.42 for getting the bad beat.  Player 'jap1234' takes away $143,038.21 for giving out the bad beat.  All other players in the hand received $28,607.64 just for being dealt in.
