01/16/2012 : MERGE'S MILLION DOLLAR BAD BEAT JACKPOT HIT
A great way to start the week for players at this table
Online poker fans have been watching the Merge Poker Network Bad Beat Jackpot climbing steadily towards the million dollar mark, and it was finally won Monday, a great start to the lucky players' week.
The big payout came when four Queens beat a player's Quad Sevens on the $1/$2 LHE virtual table, earning the players around it a seventy percent share of the jackpot.
The fortunate loser took home $355,000, the player that bust him $177,000, and about $25,000 went to each of the players at the table when the action unfolded.
The remaining 30 percent was divvied up: 10 percent for admin fees and 20 percent to seed the next jackpot.
