Posted - 04/10/2012 : 04:08:40 AM Online Poker Players Win $100k Bad Beat Jackpot Payday at Americas Cardroom.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Online poker player "BingoTroy" pops $350k Bad Beat Jackpot one week before the $250k Guaranteed on April 15th.
San Jose, Costa Rica – April 9, 2012 - It's every poker player's nightmare to lose a hand of Hold'em while holding quad 8's. But for BingoTroy at Americas Cardroom, it was a dream come true. On April 8th, the online poker player popped Americas Cardroom's Bad Beat Jackpot just one week away from the Liberty Quarter Million tournament on April 15, where $250,000 will be guaranteed in the largest online poker tournament available to US players.
It happened at a Low Stake No Limit Hold'em table in a faceoff against online poker player DoyleFlush, who won the hand with a straight flush. BingoTroy takes home $49,564.36, and the winner of the hand, DoyleFlush, left the table with a solid $33,039.57.
But it's not just the recipient of the bad beat who walks away a winner when the jackpot hits. The winner of any Bad Beat Jackpot losing hand stands to win 20% of the jackpot, and those who participated in the dealt hand will share 10% of the jackpot (30% of every jackpot goes to reseed the next big one). Sharing in the 10% was Coin22, EZTILT67 and Sdgrinder who earned $5,508.24 each for participating in the hand. Americas Cardroom paid a total of $99,128.65 in Bad Beat Jackpot winnings this weekend.
In addition to the Bad Beat Jackpot winnings paid yesterday, poker players also cashed in a second successful weekend as part of Liberty Weekends, five weekends of online poker tournaments featuring half-a-million dollars in guaranteed prize pools. The Saturday $10,000 Guaranteed saw its prize pool increased to $12,250 thanks to the 128 players who registered for the tournament. Online poker player map01 took first place for $2,817.50.
The $50k on Sunday was equally remarkable with a field of 184 fighting for the $50,600 prize pool. Online poker player Kepdog1 ended the game as the last man standing for $11,385.
The centerpiece of Liberty Weekends will be Americas Cardroom's Liberty Quarter Million on April 15th at 7:00pm ET, for which the online poker site will throw a guaranteed $250,000 prize pool on the table in a single No-Limit Hold'em tournament. The first-place winner of the event is assured of taking home at least $50,000.
Players looking to satellite into the Liberty Quarter Million can participate in Americas Cardoom's 250-Seat Super Satellite on April 13, beginning at 8:00pm ET. The event has 250 seats guaranteed in the April 15 Liberty Quarter Million, and costs $36+3 to enter.
All Liberty Weekend events contribute points to Americas Cardroom's April $60,000 Points Race. Saturday events will award 200 points, while the Sunday tournaments and 250-Seat Super Satellite on Friday will award 1,000 points. The $250,000 Guaranteed Tournament on April 15 will award 7,500 points in the Race.
