Bad Beat Jackpot [Hold'em & Omaha]

For a long time there has been a Bad Beat Jackpot in Texas Hold'em on the Pokerdom platform, but there was none for OMAHA. To get it right we are launching a Bad Beat Jackpot for Pot-Limit Omaha High tables, starting from September 1! The starting amount added by the poker room to the jackpot equals 500 000 RUB, and it will be played at tables with blinds from 2.5/5 RUB. What is a Bad Beat Jackpot? For example, you have a very strong and rare card hand, but still you lose to an even stronger and more infrequent hand. This does not happen often and it is a good reason for getting a Bad Beat Jackpot! And the main pot of this jackpot, of course, goes to the player who lost the hand.

Bad Beat Jackpot prize pool is formed at special tables with different stakes, where the word Jackpot is mentioned. Since there are plenty of such tables and a great number of active players, prize pools are formed rapidly, and even after the jackpot is hit, there is a significant amount of a new one to fight for!
