Americas Cardroom's $130k Bad Beat Payout
By RTR Dennis
Americas Cardroom has truly established itself as the home of the biggest bad beat jackpots having recently paid out yet another huge sum to a bunch of “losers.” This time around, the lucky loser was “carnyc” who received $65,072 for being the victim of a horrific bad beat. And he wasn't the only big Americas Cardroom winner... err, or loser...
Over $130,000 in Payouts
On June 24th, 2012, carnyc was looking like a sure winner when he held a strong four-of-a-kind hand. But little did he know, “NikoBellic11” had better quads on this $0.25/$0.50 No-Limit Hold’em cash game table. After their hands went to the showdown, carnyc picked up the aforementioned $65k prize for a qualifying losing hand while NikoBellic11 collected $43,377 for winning the pot.
These two weren’t the only players who shared in the bad beat jackpot wealth because “Alig8trblood,” “sj277737,” “TMONEY1990,” and “allin Tom” also received $5,423 each just for being dealt into the hand. So as you can see, merely sitting at an Americas Cardroom bad beat table can lead to a big payout!
Get Rich off Losing
Americas Cardroom spokesman Michael Harris did a good job putting his site’s bad beat jackpot into perspective, saying: “With the WSOP currently in progress, we know players are experiencing all sorts of brutal bad beats in Vegas without getting anything to ease the pain. But we’re way different.” He added: “When online poker players get dealt a crushing blow at a bad beat jackpot table, they’ll pop the jackpot that climbs by thousands of dollars every day!”
Obviously it’s difficult to beat the live poker experience, but it’s also tough to beat the amount of money that online players are earning from ACR bad beat jackpots.
