85 players cash in on a near record-breaking Bad Beat Jackpot
BetOnline Poker is serious about rewarding its players when facing a Bad Beat. In a recent Bad Beat Jackpot game at BetOnline.ag, Four of a Kind 3's were beaten by four of a kind 10's, yielding a gigantic payoff for BetOnline poker players.
The Bad Beat Jackpot was hit yesterday afternoon on a $0.50/$1 table. A spirited game was underway when FATEG was dealt a pair of threes. Unbeknownst to him, THA DON was dealt two tens. Three players folded before a flop of [ 3 ♠ 10 ♠ 3 ♣] and the remaining 3 players checked. FATEG must have been feeling pretty good! But then a lucky 10 of Diamonds appeared on the turn for THA DON. An inconsequential river of [J ♣] forced a showdown, with both remaining players going all-in. THA DON's four 10's beat FATEG's four 3's and triggering a huge Bad Beat Jackpot of $665,806.81.
FATEG cashed in the Bad Beat Jackpot for a whopping $133,161.62 and THA DON took the winning pot of $155.13 and the extra prize of $99,871.21. BetOnline shares the Bad Bet Jackpot with all players involved in BBJ games at the time the pot is hit. So every player at the winning (losing) table got $20,806.50 and all 79 players at BBJ tables collected their share of the pool ($1,095.07).
