Party Poker has always been one of the top gaming sites to come up with unique promotions. This time they have been awarding jackpots to players who manage to miss out on a winning opportunity when they get a bad beat. Party Poker recently gave away $500000 to a winner who lost out a good pot because of bad luck with his hand. The reward was based on the rules of the bad beat jackpot promotion that they are currently running and the site is already over $200000 with the new bad beat jackpot at Party Poker.
Praetorianer earned the huge jackpot by losing with quad tens, and earned $479101, while the winner of the hand – Rol007 won over $239000 himself with the Royal Flush. Seven other players who were involved in the hand received over $34000. This lucky player may have thought that his bankroll was busted as soon as he saw that he had a bad hand, but instead found that Party Poker’s bad beat jackpot kicked in. He walked away with half of a million dollars, while the actual winner of the game got less than that.
The bad beat jackpot is now becoming a common phenomenon at most online poker sites. The rules of the bad beat jackpot are that 50% of the jackpot goes to the winner who gets the bad beat, 35% goes to the winner of the hand along with the pot, and the rest of the money is shared among the other players at the table, in the house and at the new bad beat jackpot. Ironically, the worst possible hand that could lose is 8-8-8-8, which will make the player win.
Praetorianer had earned just $1763 while he was playing at Party Poker from 38768 hands of cash games, before he won this huge bad beat jackpot. In his case persistence brought in his change of luck.
Praetorianer’s defeat and yet his winnings happened to take place at the end of the week when he was playing at Party Poker’s $2/$4 cash tables, and while the hand was in progress, Praetorianer held a stock of $400 and raised to $12 UTG+2, after he was dealt the pocket tens.
Besides this, Party Poker is also hosting the Durrrr Challenge series, where online poker is being played at high stakes, Tom “Durrrr” Dwan, is playing against Dan “jungleman12” Cates.
