A poker player losing a poker hand to a bad beat can be frustrating but not if you are playing at a bad beat jackpot table. Online poker room Carbon Poker has Bad Beat Jackpot tables and players can play poker against other players as normal. But if a player loses a hand via a bad beat then they will activate the Bad Beat Jackpot.

Carbon Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot was hit just a few days ago, making it the third time the jackpot was hit this year. It was online player ‘baseball127’ who won $211,000 on a losing hand. The loss came in the wee hours of the morning at the bad beat tables. ‘baseball127’ had a straight flush but he was beat by a royal flush held by ‘WhiteCSix’s”. The winner of the hand earned $105,000 of the jackpot.
Those who were sitting at the table and were involved in the hand earned a nice pay day as well. Those players took home $15,000+, just for being at the right place at the right time. To activate the Bad Beat Jackpot at Carbon Poker a player must had a bad beat hand of Quad 7s or better, which is quite good since most online poker rooms require players lose with eights or better.

Since the win, Carbon Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot has been reset at $125,000. Over the past week the jackpot has grown over $150,000 in just the past week. Most poker players are probably trying to be the next player to hit the jackpot!

The first time the jackpot was hit this year it gave away a world record amount of $1.2 million and the second time the payout totaled at $750,000. This time the total amount paid out to players was just over $400,000.
