Nicolai Jacobsen, 21, from Denmark, thought he was the unluckiest poker player ever when his four of a kind aces hand was beaten on the river by an even better hand: Royal Straight Flush. The pot of 2,541 SEK (about €285) went to his opponent, but it didn't take long before he realized that he was the big winner of the hand.
The table Jacobsen was sitting at was a so-called Bad Beat Table on[...] Read more » Lost €285 Pot with Four of a Kind Aces - Got €219k as a Consolation!!

nice- i would have nothing against loosing this 300 pot myself- wow a 1/4 of a million consolation- this doesn't happen every day. the moral to the story: play only on the tables with bad beat jackpot on, the same goes with slots- play only where a huge jackpot is a possibility, a chance is a chance- even if it is a very small one- maybe you will be the next winner

These jackpots are nice to dream about winning, but about as likely as winning the lottery. A nice chunk of change for a young person, and I hope for his sake that he uses it wisely. So many times too much money too fast at too young an age ends up with it being wasted and a life ruined. I wish him the best.
nice for him but i think he had a shock that he lost that Hand and didn´t realize about his Jackpot win so i would like to get that money but i don´t want to change with him for the shock of his lifetime i would say

This would never have happened to me if I was Baba01140. Going all-in pre-flop with KQ? I like that hand but, that much to put $140 on it preflop? Crazy. And after watching the table cards, he must have suffered a bit to, maybe he didn’t believed he could still win that hand after the flop. He must have become real happy and relieved. As for the hero, after winning a prize the best thing he can remember is to go to the City if the Game? No other projects for the money? Is his main objective of playing winning to play more?

Posted by starbay: this is the stuff of dreams,dead and buried with 4 aces and then .....kapoom.....250k in the account,mind blowing stuff.....like mahdroff says i hope he uses it wisely and invests it
Dream ? even not happen on my dream . How good his destiny, his opponent should be get prize, too. Right ? if he didn't, Nicolai should give him some without his bet with ' just ' KQs - all in . It wouldn't happen.

that players was lucky,that kind off jackpot is also by party poker,i thought once about it,lets say that i sit on a table whit a person,and u noticed that he dont like you,and if it goes about a few g's and the oponent now that you've got ,lets say a quad 10's, what will hapend if the player whit r.flush dont wanted the money in the pot,and he tell you this: lets say that the j.pot = 200k,and the oponent,suddenly say,that he have r flush ,but he want 50% off 200k,or otherwise coz he dont like you,and he say i fold my r flush,what can u do about that,split 200k,before he muck his RFlush,what will the poker site do,i wunder if that is happend once,if he fold you win the pot,off 200 $$ instead off 200K,then what to do split it? say oke whe split but u dont do it,coz a lot off people cant have that u win 200k and whit and r flush just 300 dollars,would u make a deal?coz if he fold,just becoz he didnt want that u win 200k,what do you do,what can u do? coz at that moment he got you,he can fold,means no 200k,split each 100k,i think that i will ******him that he never can hold 1 single card in his hand,coz youre oponent,i think it count for evry1 coz he have youre 200k in his hand,and it s also up to him te react,that sux if he fold
------------ also forgot to say,once i was in Holland casino,and in the Netherlands the Jackpot is in 1 line whit all other H casino's,i did 5 € in the machine,at that time 1 press cost 3,75 €( today)7,50€1 spin, i got 4 E symbols and i had 2000 points and 5 free spins,my Hart was 200BPM but he did NOT fall the jackpot was at that time over 1,3 million,i had for the 2000 points i think 400€,1 E symbole more and i was rich..... its always if if if

If people dont belive in dreams and destiny they stay at home, stop playing and just sleep and eat, of course, work to gain for food. It could happen to anyone, in this case i just dont know how baba could push allin with KQ suited in a cash game, lucky for hero that he did and hit his hand. Men 219k by losing a hand! And me trying to win the Sunday million!?
------------ PS: Baba should be listening the Blackeyedpeas "i got a felling" when he mad the push to allin, lol

Damn, in all my poker years, I have had many straight flushes, at least a dozen of them K or Q high, but Never, Never have I made a Royal Flush... It really bugs me... One day I suppose, it has to happen... (statistically anyways)

It would have been a rigged river lol .. but in this case it was a pretty cool one lol...I cannot even imagine to hold four Aces and to get busted by a royal flush lol this never happend to me...but I beat once four Jack or 8s(I don't remember) with straight flush 7 high lol...and I didn't know why I won )) it was my first poker hands by then..It was a good consoltation though.. I bet he didn't mind after that his Aces were crushed ) he maybe thanked

Che che , nice I wish the same too.. But I am not going to play on bad beat tables, because of rake.. I think 99% of people playing in these tables lose more then they could win Sure there is some lucky players who wins that bad beats Jackpots .. But.. you will never be that 1
