Bad-beat Jackpot «Holdem»

Bad-beat jackpot can turn your impressions upside down after losing a hand! Just imagine that you have a perfect hand and you are anticipating to win a big pot against an annoying opponent, but suddenly he turns out to have collected an even stronger hand and he gets all your desired chips. Painful? You bet. But wait, if you played at a Bad-beat jackpot table it is you who really won! How it works?

PokerMatch has special UAH tables with a little higher commission fee, where players form the jackpot prize fund themselves. In some cases its amount can reach up to several million UAH! And if on such a table a player with quad of deuces loses to an even more powerful hand, Bad-beat jackpot will be distributed and hand loser will get the main pot! That's why it is named so.

You can play at Bad Beat Jackpot tables with blinds of 1/2 UAH and higher.

1. Bad-beat is considered an event when your hand starting from a quad of deuces loses to an even stronger hand.
2. If two or more players collect hands that meet the jackpot criteria, then two highest hands are considered in drawing. First higher hand wins and the other loses, thus hitting a bad-beat jackpot.
