Talk about a double rush of adrenaline
Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 25, 2007
It was Déjà Vu at Absolute Poker this past weekend as the popular online poker site's new Bad Beat Jackpot was hit twice in just under five hours.
"Talk about a double rush of adrenaline," stated David Clainer, senior vice president for Absolute Poker. "We handed out nearly $250,000 between the two tables last Saturday and we're gearing up to make even more people very rich."
At 12:38 on Saturday, July 21st, JOE JETS lost quad 9s to SHORT_SHYT's quad Jacks and walked away with $97,650.85 for losing the hand.
Within just a few hours of the jackpot being reset, history repeated itself. At 16:55 ET, JBAND277's quad 10s were no match for GOLFCOFFEY's quad Jacks. Another $26,890.35 made its way into JBAND277's account for his losing hand.
If a poker player loses a hand holding four 8s or anything better at a Bad Beat Jackpot table, they'll win a piece of the Bad Beat Jackpot. A percentage of the poker jackpot is shared amongst the players where the bad beat occurred and a fraction of the jackpot is placed back into the pot for the next jackpot.
Absolute Poker is the only online poker site open to US players to feature Bad Beat Jackpot tables.
