8 share $18K Oaklawn winnings

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (Wednesday, June 20, 2012) – One day after the second largest jackpot in history of $62,407.85 was hit at Oaklawn, two best friends and six other poker players shared in an $18,030 bad beat poker jackpot Tuesday night.

 

David Pike, 24, of Hot Springs was talked into coming to Oaklawn by his friend Brock Taffe, also of Hot Springs, and left with $9,015 for having his seemingly unbeatable hand taken down by Taffe. Taffe, in turn, received $4,508 for winning the hand and the other six players at the table each got $751.

 

“I used the play quite a lot but I haven’t been back until a few weeks ago,” said Pike. “And, if Brock hadn’t have talked me into coming tonight, I wouldn’t have been here.”

 

“I was standing right beside them when it hit and they almost scared me to death,” said cocktail waitress Elaine Bania.

Five years ago, the Graces Guild was born when seven ladies invited two hundred of their friends to support a young musician and artist who had lost her home and piano to Hurricane Katrina.  Since that time, the network of friends has grown in pursuit of their common goal, supporting the arts in Hot Springs and the surrounding region through the Muses Creative Arts Project.
