IPN player wins $600K Bad Beat online poker jackpot

Monday, August 10, 2009
LONDON, England -- An International Poker Network (IPN) player may have been surprised and disappointed when he lost a hand despite having Quad Jacks, however that disappointment soon turned to triumph
  when he realized he had hit the network's massive €412,781 Bad Beat Jackpot ($590,000).

"I was so sure my four Jacks would take the pot. My heart sank when my opponent revealed four Kings to beat them," said the winner, known at the poker table as AlkaliEars. "But then I remembered that by losing with such a great hand I had won the Bad Beat jackpot!"

AlkaliEars received €144,473 of the €412,781 jackpot. The winner of the hand got €72,236 and the other players at the table each got €24,078. The new Jackpot is already over €90,000.

"The Bad Beat Jackpot was created to help ease the frustration of losing even when you're dealt great cards," said Mery Blomqvist, Head of Marketing and PR at GTECH G2. "With a jackpot requirement starting at Quad 6s, this has got to be the easiest Bad Beat Jackpot to hit anywhere!"

To qualify for the Bad Beat at IPN poker rooms, players must be at a designated Bad Beat table and use both pocket cards in their winning or losing hand. The losing hand must be four-of-a-kind sixes or better. Four or more players must be dealt into the hand.

The IPN is Europe's largest independent Poker Network. It recently celebrated its 3,000,000th player and dealt its billionth hand last year. The IPN, which includes such popular poker sites as VirginPoker.com, PokerHeaven.com and the Casino-Club.com poker room, regularly hosts Guaranteed €1,000,000 tournaments.

GTECH G2 is the igaming division of lottery industry giant, GTECH. It combines the software development and customer management expertise of Boss Media, Finsoft, Dynamite Idea and St Minver and operates the International Poker Network and International Bingo Network.
