Losing You May Earn

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. The jackpot was $821,670, what is the biggest jackpot of this kind won at online casino poker sites. $267,043 went to the “favored to win” loosing hand, $133,521 and some change to the player who actually won the hand, and $33,380 to all other players in the Texas Hold’em game.
