Aces cracked twice

Imperial Palace 1-2 no limit

Sometimes the interesting action at the table is not a hand I am involved in. This post and the next are a couple examples.

This casino has an aces cracked bonus. If you lose with pocket aces, you get $100 from the house. It's not always a good thing, because you could invest a lot to stay in the pot, possibly more than $100.

For one guy, it happened twice in the span of 10 minutes. The first one was against a $180 all-in where the guy had nines. The aces were ahead but the board hit four clubs and gave the nines a flush. So the aces lost $180 but won $100. Ten minutes later the same guy had aces again and lost to another flush, but this time the pot was only about $80 so he came out $20 up.
