Bad Beat Jackpot hit again at UB.com

Leading online poker room has awarded one unlucky competitor that crashed out holding quad nines with over $102,000 in cash.

Friday 29th October 2010



One lucky competitor at online poker room UB.com is celebrating this month after taking home well over $102,000 in cash courtesy of its Bad Beat Jackpot. A player using the pseudonym ‘WHATAGUY431’ collected $102,877 after busting out on October 23 with UB.com stating that the prize fund has already recovered to reach $302,808. UltimateBet.com stated that it has awarded around $60 million in prize money through its Bad Beat Jackpots over the last three years and players are eligible as long as they are at a participating table and hold quad eights or better utilising both hole cards. For his part, ‘WHATAGUY431’ was in possession of quad nines at the time of going out while the previous Bad Beat Jackpot winner, a competitor using the pseudonym ‘AACOHEN’, won $106,834 on October 17 after being dumped despite holding four Queens. “Our Bad Beat Jackpots have turned our poker games completely upside-down, giving our unluckiest players the kind of bad beat story that everyone will want to hear,” read a statement from UltimateBet.com. “When you sit down and play at one of our Bad Beat Jackpot tables you get the chance to walk away a winner even if you've lost what you thought was a sure thing. “Simply put, a bad beat is when a poker hand that under any other conditions would be the worst hand comes from behind to beat a much better hand. When this happens to other players, this is just part of the game. But, when it happens to you it becomes something much more personal, something you want to share. That's where our Bad Beat Jackpots come in, making your loss into something that others are going to know more about.”
