Up until last week, the Bad Beat Jackpot at BetOnline Poker had been won four times in fifteen months. Now it has been won twice in five days. As a result, BetOnline Poker has added $50,000 to the prize pool to make sure there is something worth winning if the Jackpot is won for a third time in quick succession.
Last week, I wrote about how “BB-8” had seen his (or her) Straight Flush crushed by a better Straight Flush, and how he (or she) had won $124,932 for suffering a bad beat in BetOnline Poker´s Bad Beat Jackpot promotion. I [geolink href=”https://www.usafriendlypokersites.com/bad-beat-jackpot-of-624661-won-at-betonline-poker/”]concluded the article[/geolink] by writing
if it were won [again] today, the player suffering the Bad Beat would receive more than $40,000.
I must have had some kind of premonition because, soon after the article was published, the Bad Beat Jackpot was indeed won once again and the player suffering the bad beat collected $40,770 for their “misfortune”. I was always good at math at school. Now I just need to work on predicting the winning lottery numbers.
That´s Why Pocket Queens are Called Bitches
The player suffering the bad beat this time around was a player with the screenname “timmarymad”. He (or she) was in the button position on a $0.50/$1.00 full ring Jackpot table and had been dealt [card qh qs]. The pre-flop action gave little indication of what was to come – the player Under the Gun “nz111” raising to $2.00, one other player coming along for the ride, and “timmarymad” calling the raise.
Following the flop of [card ad 10c qc], “nz111” raised the pot by $3.50, the other player got out of the way, and “timmarymad” called. A similar sequence followed the Turn ([card ac]), when “nz111” bet $8.93 into the pot and “timmarymad” again flat called (despite at this point holding a Full House of Queens over Aces). It was only after the River ([card qh]) that it all kicked off.
On the final round of betting, “nz111” moved all-in for the remaining $93.22 in his stack. “timmarymad” wasted no time matching the bet, and must have thought he was destined to win the $215.30 in the pot with his Quad Queens. However, “nz111” revealed [card kc jc] for a Royal Flush and not only scooped the pot but also activated BetOnline Poker´s Jackpot prize for a bad beat.
How the Jackpot Prize Pool was Distributed
When BetOnline Poker´s Jackpot prize is activated, the player suffering the bad beat gets 20% of whatever the prize pool amounts to. At the time the above hand took place, the prize pool was approaching $204,000 and “timmarymad” collected $40,772.32, while the victor in the hand – “nz111” – collected $25,481.45 in addition to the $215.30 in the pot.
The seven players dealt into the Jackpot hand each collected $3,640.21, while every other player playing at a Jackpot table shared in $25,481.45 – the second time in five days players playing at BetOnline Poker´s Jackpot tables have won a cash prize just for being in the right place at the right time. After a deduction for administration fees, $61,158.48 of the prize pool was used to reseed the next Jackpot.
However, as BetOnline Poker advertises its Bad Beat Jackpot with a minimum prize value of $100,000, the site took the decision to add a further $50,000 to the prize pool. The pool is now growing quickly again, funded by a small addition to the rake at Jackpot tables, and the current prize pool stands at just over $128,750 – or $25,750 to the winner if the Jackpot is won again today!
