In these times, many poker rooms have created bad beat jackpots but unfortunately to get these prizes you should be beaten by cooler hands at showdown and only with very high hands. For example only if you have minimum a quads of eights and your opponent get a bigger hand. Why they don't create bad beat jackpot for all in preflop in which you hold AA, KK etc and you are crushed by 27, 38, 45 os and other rubbish? Of course because this happen very often. But they could just provide some little prize to the loser, or maybe give the possibility to buy an insurance against these beats... Because is really irritating to be knocked out by donks that push with rubbish cards and they play poker without any strategy, just hoping to have luck! Guys, what do you think about?

There is a site on the net where,if it gets all in,you have 70% or more chance of winning and you lose,you will split the pot. Of course it can go the other way around too if you suck out.
In general these bad beat jacpots or prizes are stupid anyways. Playing on bad beat jackpots is not profitable longterm because they charge extra rake which makes you pay more rake than your chance of winning a part of the jackpot,and the small prizes you suggest would make the game not interesting anymore..if there would be no suck outs,poker would be boring,just face it

^ As above. Jackpots/etc are stupid and you should always avoid these tables/promotions. The sites aren't giving ANYTHING away, you simply pay more rake to get entered into a "lottery" of sorts. Playing BB/Jackpot tables is akin to gambling on roulette.

I believe you have better chances of winning the lotto than winning the bad beat jackpot. The combination is very hard to get and there are rules. Its not what we usually call bad beat. There are minimum hands involved in order to be valid. Not to mention the river show up

Although we have already read some news about the release of the bad beatbonus, i tend to look at him like the biggest bonus one see at the casinos, above slot machines. I know i can get it if i play and it happens to me, but its always so far... just another dream.
