BetOnline Rewards Poker Players Who Suffer Bad Beats
BetOnline has started rewarding its cash poker players who suffer bad beat streaks. A bad beat is a hand that a poker player loses even though he was the favourite to win at the start of the hand. BetOnline, a popular online poker room and casino, will divide $5,000 among players who experienced at least one bad beat.
These rewards will be meted out through the King of the Beats tournament. The funds will be distributed proportionally to all the players on the tournament leaderboard. Players earn a set amount of points for each bad beat, depending on the severity of the loss.
Here’s the list of points awarded for each type of bad beat:
- Defeat with three of a kind – 1 point
- Defeat with any straight – 2 points
- Defeat with any flush – 3 points
- Defeat with a full house – 5 points
- Defeat with quads – 50 points
- Defeat with straight flush – 100 points
As we’ve mentioned, every player who has earned at least one point will get a portion of the prize. The tournament will be held every Sunday, with users opting in before they can participate. Additionally, only games played with table stakes of 10¢-25¢ or higher will bring you points. The first-ranked player on the leaderboard gets a free seat at the Sunday $150,000 tournament in addition to the cash reward.
