$1 Million Bad Beat Jackpot Awarded on Merge Network

Tags: bad beat jackpot, carbon poker, merge network, no deposit bonus.
Posted on 18 January 2012 by "T".

Two days ago, some lucky players at a $1/$2 Limit Hold'em table got to share a bad beat jackpot of amazing $1 million on the Merge Gaming Network (Carbon Poker etc). Seventy percent of the jackpot was distributed to the table. The one who lost the hand, "Eulson", received amazing $355k, the winner of the hand, "123maryc", received over $177k, and the remaining players at the table got more than $25,000 each.

In order to qualify for the back beat jackpot on Merge Gaming Network, four of a kind 7s or better must be beaten by a better hand on a special bad beat table. Both the winner and the loser must use both hole cards and the hand must go to showdown with a rake of minimum $0.50. Apart from that, a minimum of 4 players must be dealt into the hand. In other words, It's not by chance the bad beat jackpot had grown so big before someone won it.

Wow, very nice, i think i already saw some of their sick jackpots on their official youtube account Smile

I think more poker platforms should introduce this bad beat game.
 pochui18/01/2012 16:56:20 GMT
wow thats just super duper awesome- imagine winning $335k for nothing, lmfao those jackpot tables are worth it imo, of course it is a rare thing to happen, but i am sure that one win in a lifetime is totally enough, and considering the stakes they were playing, dude prob had something like $10k in their accounts max, and now this, just awesome

had been a long time that jackpot been growing at merge, but nice prize for the lucky "loser" and other players on the table.

That's because unless you're playing at a casino or on a network with a jackpot, than it's a guaranteed loss (who folds quad 7's or better, no matter what the board looks like?). I know you're just kidding but also take into account that in such cases, you still lose the pot, despite scooping the majority of the jackpot paid out.

I would also like to know what hands were involved here Question . . . disappointed it wasn't included in the article.

Hi guys!!

355k for a badbeat is a nice amount. And 2k for see the badbeat in a good gift, too!!
Mmmm, some sitout or waiting blinds player in the table? If i was i instant-tilt.

Pd. How the HM graphic show this kind of win?

I believe no one plays at Merge Gaming Network to see if he manages to get the hand on a part of the bad beat jackpot. With so many restrictions the probability of playing or being in a table where one of the few hands that fills all this conditions, with the minimum number of necessary players in the table and the minimum rake generated, must be too low. I guess the only times that were played hands good enough for the bad beat jackpot but that didn’t filled all other conditions were in tables with lack of players. That amount of rake must always be reached, taking in consideration both players think they will win the hand. Even though, it sure is a very nice attractive. If those guys were playing $1/$2, they probably have good bankrolls, but $25k plus is always nice to receive.
 Macubaas19/01/2012 15:34:20 GMT
lol i would also be curious to see how hem or pt3 would see this kind of action while playing on carbon poker Smile

Still, as we saw in the article it isn't that easy to win such a bad beat jackpot...

It's not a "win" . . . as I mentioned, you still lose the pot, and the bonus is transferred by the administration directly into your bankroll. Thus, the tracking software would track it as a standard loss (well, a win for the person with the best hand). The bonuses would not be tracked, much like play-through bonuses.

anyone knows what was the hand?
