Poker news this past week revealed a story about a new promotion showing up for players on the Merge Poker Network. The promotion is called the Bad Beat Jackpot and to put it simply, players are rewarded for being beat by a hand that is better than most others, like quad Kings for example. If you are eligible for this promotion you sign up and register and play in the correct games and simply hope to get lucky…or unlucky, whatever way you look at it.The first Bad Beat Jackpot was won recently and the prize money was excessive. Two players, “Eulson” and “123maryc” were the big winners while the other players at the table made away with a pretty hefty sum as well. “123maryc” started the fateful hand with pocket Queens and “Eulson” was dealt pocket 7s, not a bad pair for either of them. The tide began to shift during the flop because the first three card were a 7 and 2 Queens. This meant that “Eulson” was happy with his hand because he just landed a Full House, but little did he know, “123maryc” was currently locked and loaded with quad Queens. The betting went back and forth and the other players at the table made way for these two, and when all was said and done “123maryc” won the hand.Normally that would simply lead to “Eulson” being upset and let down, but thanks to the Merge Network he made away with over $350,000. The hand winner, “123maryc” was not left out in the cold and she too went home with a hefty sum of over $177,000; an amount she won for being the hand’s winner. The other players at the table who folded were left to split the remaining $25,363 jackpot.To register for the Bad Beat Jackpot and to find out full terms and conditions visit one of  our Merge Poker Sites below.
