BEST HAND


All Texas Hold-Em Cash Game and Tournament Players Are Automatically Eligible For The Best Hand.

$5.00 from every member will be added to the Best Hand Pool until hit by the end of any day. Once hit, the Best Hand will start over at zero. The Best Hand must be Jack quads or better and verified by an Abby J Card House manager to be valid.

If the Best Hand Pool is not won by the end of any given day, it will carry over to the next day of operation. If Best Hand reaches $1000. it will be capped and a second Best Hand will be started, so it will not start at zero.

BAD BEAT JACKPOT


A Bad Beat Jackpot is a prize that is paid when a sufficiently strong hand is shown down and loses to an even stronger hand held by another player.

Not all poker games offer bad beat jackpots, and those that do have specific requirements for how strong a losing hand must be to qualify for the jackpot. For example, the losing hand may be required to be four-of-a-kind or better.

There may be additional requirements as well. For example, in Texas Hold’em there is usually a requirement that both hole cards play in both the losing and winning hands, or that where a full house is the minimum (usually aces full of jacks or higher), both hole cards must be used to make the three-of-a-kind in the full house.

Image

Bad Beat Jackpots are usually progressive, often with a small player contribution being taken out of each pot to fund the jackpot.

When a jackpot is won, it is usually split among all players sitting at the table at the time of the bad beat with the losing hand getting the largest share, followed by the winning hand, and all the other players dividing the remainder. Generally, only the best losing hand is eligible to win the largest share, even if another hand would also qualify.

Specific rules, collections, payout percentages, and amounts vary greatly from one casino or card room to the next and are sometimes changed.
