Took down the bad beat jackpot at Cascades Casino

Well here's the story.

I went to Langley for my stepbrother's wedding and we stayed at the Coast hotel which has the casino. After dinner last night, I went down to play some $1/$2. The place was packed because the bad beat jackpot was up to $175,000. I got on the list behind 52 other people and then proceeded to burn off $300 on roulette in the 3 hours it took me to get my seat. Finally got in at like 11:30. I played a long session and at around 9:00 AM I had about $900 in front of me. We had breakfast plans at 10:00, so I was getting ready to go. Then I get all in with KK against AA and give away $350, so I go on tilt a bit and decide to stick around for a few more rounds to try and get some chips back.

At about 9:30, I decided that it was my last round, and then I picked up AK in cutoff position. I raised to $15, and the guy beside me reluctantly called. Flop came out A33. I bet $30, buddy called. Turn came another Ace, giving me Aces full. I check, hoping to trap him, but also fairly certain that he had the other Ace. He checked behind. Then a King came on the river, upgrading my full house to Aces full of Kings. I bet out $50 and he called. I roll over my cards and buddy flips over his 33 and says "we got it". Obviously the table goes nuts and the whole casino starts crowding around.

Since I was the one that received the bad beat, I got half of the jackpot for a little over $87,000. The guy that beat me got 25% of the pot for about $44,000, and everyone else at the table split the other 25% for around 5k each. And as customary, the guy with the quads tipped the dealer the entire pot. I donated the rest of my stack ($400ish) to the dealer as well. Pretty intense. It still hasn't entirely sank in.

Holy shit man, congrats. Of all the time Ive spent sitting in a shitty casino poker chair, I have yet to see a bad beat happen. Always just miss it. Wait, maybe I saw one once at Boulevard in Coquitlam. What are you going to do with the money?

You generally just play against the other players for as much as you have in front of you...but at casinos they have a bonus jackpot. Its a progressive thing that the casino puts in, so it constantly increases until someone wins it.

As far as the money, I'm gonna pay off my truck and put most of what's left towards the house I'm building
