There’s $1 Million GTD And Then A Joker On The Flop

We are 100% sure that our headline has your attention. At the PokerNews Cup 2022 hosted at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas a Joker showed up on the flop of a $1 Million GTD event. But is this the golden news we wanted to share with you? Of course not. The stars were just not aligned for this tournament to run smoothing and something odd happened.

On Monday during the Day 2 session of the $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em event, a jaw-dropping flop was revealed on one of the tables. This happened on the very first hand of the $1 Million GTD event. The dealer fanned the cards of  {2-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, and then there was a Joker. 

Not sure how but a Joker card did show on the flop which left some amused while some were in shock. As per PokerNews, one player who was seated at another table took a video of this unconventional incident and shared the same on the YouTube channel of PokerNews.
