Absolute Poker rewarding bad beats

28 Jun 2007

Miami, FL (PRESS RELEASE) – Within one day of releasing its new Bad Beat Jackpot game, Absolute Poker doled out nearly $78,000 to five lucky Absolute Poker players after the very first jackpot was hit.

Less than 48 hours later, it was deja vu for players of the new online poker game as the jackpot bells tolled once again.

"This is proof that Absolute Poker has taken the lead in making online poker more lucrative," stated David Clainer, senior vice president for Absolute Poker. "When you can lose a hand and walk away with tens of thousands of dollars, it's pretty amazing."

The first Bad Beat Jackpot was won early Saturday morning by CGA11 who lost quad tens to NEDKELLY's straight flush. In traditional Texas Hold'em, CGA11 would have walked away from the table with nothing but a whole lot of anger. However, at a Bad Beat Jackpot table, when a player loses a hand holding four eights (8888) or anything better, they win the largest piece of the Bad Beat Jackpot. In CGA11's case, that meant nearly $40,000 for his losing hand. All players who were seated at the table where the bad beat occurred also shared in the jackpot.

History repeated itself early Monday morning when MARKM3451 lost four of a kind to WHITETAIL0's king high straight flush, losing the hand but winning nearly $13,000 by hitting the jackpot.
