Carbon Poker, an online poker room on the Merge Gaming Network, has announced the end of its Bad Beat Jackpot. In other words, the current Bad Beat Jackpot at Carbon Poker is the last one, and after it has been won, Carbon Poker or any other online poker room on the Merge Gaming Network, for that matter, will not have a Bad Beat Jackpot.
A representative for Carbon Poker says that this move is to make sure of a healthy “poker room ecology.” According to a statement on the Carbon Poker website, “Effective Immediately: This promotion is ending, the next time the Jackpot goes off. All of the tables will shut down automatically within a few minutes for the Jackpot being awarded. We will manually reimburse any BBJ rake paid between the time that the jackpot goes off and when the tables can be shutdown.”
Currently, the Bad Beat Jackpot at Carbon Poker is worth $322,892, and 20% of this amount will comprise the seed value of the next jackpot, if there is one. Since there will not be another Bad Beat Jackpot, this 20 percent will be distributed among the players at the table when the Bad Beat Jackpot is won. The largest portion of the pot will go to the player who has the worst hand. Fifty cents from each pot on specific cash game tables goes into the Bad Beat Jackpot.
A representative for Carbon Poker has stated on TwoPlusTwo forum, “We have made the decision, after some long analytical review of the BBJ Tables, to remove them completely… This change is to ensure a healthier poker room ecology, while providing players with a better ring game selection and increased players at the stakes the BBJ tables use to be.”
