Americas Cardroom’s online poker site’s Bad Beat Jackpot game was popped three times in just four days as 18 players shared in close to $100,000 as a result of losing hands.
The first Bad Beat Jackpot was taken down on September 12th, when jksvjoe’s four Queens got beaten by Smarty-pants’ straight flush in a hand of Texas Hold’em. But instead of walking away with the emotional scar of a bad beat, jksvjoe left the table with $22,152.49 in extra cash.
At any table marked Jackpot, Americas Cardroom automatically soften the blow of losing a huge hand of Hold’em with four 8s or better by paying poker players big money when misfortune strikes. And that doesn’t just include the “loser” of the hand. The winner of any Bad Beat Jackpot losing hand wins a nice chunk of the jackpot too, and so do they players who participated in the losing hand, even if they folded before the flop.
The September 12th win was followed by two more bad beat jackpots: September 14th that saw lottaleaks win $15k for losing to drdave444 (who pocketed over $10k for winning); and another on September 16th that made thedonny almost $11k richer after losing to ecu6106 in a hand of Hold’em.
In addition to contributing money to the Bad Beat Jackpot, anyone who sits down at a cash table marked Jackpot automatically contributes money to the Beast, Americas Cardroom’s groundbreaking progressive points race. And as they play at Jackpot tables, players earn leaderboard points toward the monthly Beast leaderboard.
