America’s Cardroom Player Hits a Badbeat Jackpot

(Un)lucky punter gets $175,232 for a losing hand

This has been a lucky week for America's Cardroom player Poobah911, who despite having a losing hand went home with a big win in his account - $175,232.10, thanks to the company's $500 000 Bad Beat jackpot being breached.

This happened on February 7th, when a new player on the site, Poobah911 lost the hand against online poker player toptrainer, who won the hand with a straight flush. For toptrainer this was a nice hand as well, as he also left the table with a nice win of $116,809.70.

As one of those who participated in the dealt hand, a share in the 10 percent that such players traditionally get was won by Word Son, a 3-time Bad Beat Jackpot winner who on this occasion earned $14,605.59.

According to the company spokesman Michael Harris, "The latest Bad Beat Jackpot win will go down in Americas Cardroom as legendary. Not only did a brand new player pop our $500k Bad Beat Jackpot, but sharing in the prize pool is one of our frequent Bad Beat Jackpot winners."
