The wait to see who would win the record breaking online poker bad beat jackpot at Absolute Poker is over. KADI, an Australian player win the over $800K jackpot when his ten high straight flush went down to a king high straight flush.


The previous record for a bad beat poker jackpot was held by Party Poker at $738,621 but no more as Absolute poker can now claim the record alone.


Usually getting beat like the hand above is hard to swallow even for the stoutest of professional poker players. The beat KADI received though comes with a bonus of $267,042.97, which tends to make the bad beat he just received go down a lot easier.


The winner of the hand not only got the pot, but also $133,521.48 of the jackpot and the other seven players at the poker table received $33,380.37 for their part in just watching the action. Not a bad online poker session for anyone who was fortunate enough to be there when it happened.


The jackpot has been reset and is now $215 000. With $0.50 collected from each qualifying hand at designated Bad Beat Jackpot tables, that number is growing by an average of $2 000 per hour, says Absolute Poker.
