Default Greatest poker hand ever

My good buddy Alex just called me from the Commerce about a hand that happened there recently. He wasn't at the table.

5-10 no-limit. Nice old rich guy and a punk kid are at the table. The punk kid has been riding the old man for hours. The old guy hasn't said anything. Finally they tangle in a huge pot and get all the money in. The kid shows a big aces full - a jackpot qualifier. The old man says, "Well, I'm rich already," flashes quads, and MUCKS HIS HAND.

Punk goes ballistic. Floor says sorry kid it doesn't count.

Old man then whips out a wad of bills and pays everyone else at the table what they would have won in the jackpot.


Now that's style.

I heard this same exact story except it was an old lady, but she didn't pay anyone.

Matt,

Does this thread involve a prop bet?

When I read the title of this post my response was grooooaaaaan. But my God, if this really happened it might possibly be the greatest poker hand ever played.

I can't think of any way to improve on it even in theory (which makes me pretty skeptical it really happened).

Matt--

If this is true, what's maybe more interesting is that truth finally imitates an old old story. I've heard this one in multiple states.
