·      What is the Bad Beat Jackpot?

Many casinos and poker rooms have what’s called the “Bad Beat Jackpot,” which is paid out in a game when a highly ranked hand is beaten by an even higher ranked hand. 

·      What's considered the Bad Beat?

A full house with Ace’s over Jacks losing to at least quads or better.  See the full explanations below.

·        So just exactly how does the Bad Beat work?

1)      The minimum losing hand must be at least Ace’s full of Jacks

2)      The minimum winning hand must be at least quads

3)      Both players hole (or pocket) cards must play

4)      The best five cards in all situations will be used
*in the case of the player's hole cards NOT being a pocket pair, and the lower card that is being used as a kicker matches the board, the board card will take priority.  The kicker MUST BE HIGHER than the cards on the board, NOT matching, in order to be considered The Bad Beat. 
(ex. Player is holding A/8, with A/A/A/8/2 on the board...the 8 on the board will be used as the kicker, NOT the 8 that is in the player's hand).

            Example 1 – BAD BEAT

Player A is holding 4S/4C and player B is holding 5D/6D.  The board is:

3C    4H   4D   7D   8D

           

            This gives player A quad 4’s while giving Player B a straight flush.  This is

considered the bad beat!  See payout structure below

Example 2 – NOT A BAD BEAT

Player A is holding 7S/8S and player B is holding 9H/8H.  The board is:

                                                9S   10S   JS   9C   9D

This gives player A a straight flush while giving player B quad 9’s.  This, however, would not be considered the bad beat.  Both of Player B’s hole cards did not play.  Player B has quad 9’s with the JS as the kicker.  The 8H does not play.

           

Example 3 – BAD BEAT

Using example 2, let’s just change one card:

Player A is holding 7S/8S and player B is holding 9H/AH.  The board is:

                                                9S    10S   JS   9C   9D

This gives player A a straight flush while giving player B quad 9’s.  This would be considered the bad beat.  In this case, both of Player B’s hole cards did play.  Player B now has quad 9’s with the AH as the kicker.*

*most casinos and poker rooms require that quads must use a pocket pair.  Big Stacks is just requiring that both hole cards play.

 Example 4 – NOT A BAD BEAT

Player A is holding 4S/5S and player B is holding 9H/9C.  The board is:

                                                6S    7S   8S   9S   9D

This gives player A a straight flush while giving player B quad 9’s.  This, however, would not be considered the bad beat.  Both of Player A’s hole cards did not play.  The five highest cards must play, so the straight flush would be the 5S through 9S, not the 4S through 8S.

 

PAYOUT STRUCTURE

·        Who gets paid?
Sponsorship Dollars Jackpot:

1)      The loser of the hand (the lower of the Bad Beat hands) will receive 70% of the jackpot.

     2)      The winner of the hand (the higher of the Bad Beat hands) will receive 30% of the jackpot.

Tournament Chips Jackpot:

1)      Each player not involved with the Bad Beat will share 80% of the jackpot.

2)      The players in the Bad Beat hand will each receive 10% of the jackpot.


(*)    In the event of a multiple Bad Beat, losing hands will split according to rank of the hands.

Player A is holding KS/KD, player B is holding QH/QC and player C is holding AC/JC.  The board is:

                                                2C    9S   AS   AH   AD

This gives player A Aces full of Kings, player B Aces full of Queens, and player C quad Aces, Jack kicker.  This would be a three-way bad beat. 
Player C would get 30%  of the sponsorship dollar jackpot and 5% of the Tournament Chips jackpot
Player A would get 60% 
of the sponsorship dollar jackpot and 5% of the Tournament Chips jackpot
Player B would get 10%  of the sponsorship dollar jackpot and 5% of the Tournament Chips jackpot
The remaining players share in 85% of the Tournament Chips jackpot

         
In all payouts, Tournament Chips will be rounded UP to the nearest 100 chip increment

How will the jackpot increase?

Each night that the Bad Beat is not hit, 500 Tournament Chips per venue and and $1 per venue per night will be added to the jackpot.  For example, if we have a night with 3 venues, 1,500 Tournament Chips and $3 will be added to the jackpot that night.   The Bad Beat will cap at $500.  Once the Bad Beat hits, it will reset to 1,000 Tournament Chips and $100.
