A bad beat is not always disappointing. It is not bad when players are seated at a Bar Beat Jackpot table, because a winning hand that actually loses means jackpot for all of the players involved in the game.
Bad Beat jackpots were designed to reward players who lose a Texas Hold’em game with a hand that is favored to win. Players who lose the Texas Hold’em game with a hand of four 8’s or better trigger the jackpot.
AbsolutePoker.com is the place where the most recent Bad Jackpot was won.
