Bad Beat Rules:

 

  • Bad Beat Jackpot only applies to Limit and No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em cash games. All other games are excluded.
    • This excludes Bomb Pots and Multiple Board Games. However, this does not exclude “running it multiple times”.
    • The Bad Beat will only qualify on the natural board when “Running it multiple times”

 

  • The losing hand must be Four of a Kind 10-10-10-10 or higher losing to a Straight Flush or Higher.

 

  • The two-hole cards from the winner’s hand and the two-hole cards from the loser’s hand must all be in play as part of each player’s best five card hand.

 

  • The four of a kind must also include a pocket pair (two cards of the same rank, I.E., 10-10).

 

  • There must be 5 or more players dealt into the Bad Beat Hand. A player missing a blind will be dealt out and not considered one of the 5 players.

 

  • There must be a total of 10 Big Blinds or more in the pot upon showdown.

 

  • Players must play their hands independently and cannot collude in order to chase the Bad Beat Jackpot
  • Exposing the contents of a player’s hole cards, whether visually or verbally, may disqualify that hand (round) from the Bad Beat

 

  • The hand must go to showdown​.

 

  • Given this is a Multi Club Promotion, the exact time the last hand is tabled will be used to determine the winner. In the event this is inconclusive as to which table was completed first, the jackpot amount will be split evenly amongst those clubs and hands.

 

  • The Bad Beat Jackpot is paid out in the following percentages: 50% to the loser of the hand; 30% to the winner of the hand; 20% divided among the rest of the active players at the table.

 

  • An ‘active player’ is a player sitting at the table where the Bad Beat occurred and paying an active seat rental during the time of the Bad Beat hand who has not missed a blind. ​

 

  • In the event of 2 or more qualifying losing hands at the same table in the same hand, the 50% losing payout will be split evenly between the qualifying losing hands.

 

 

  • All Bad Beat Hands will be reviewed and verified before declaring a winner. Additionally after any Bad Beat Hand, the deck will be recreated to ensure there was not a fouled deck.

 

  • The Bad Beat Jackpot is not stored as cash on the premises of Texas Card House and will be paid within 5 business days of the qualifying hand.

 

  • Any qualified recipient of the Jackpot must be able to present a valid government issued identification in order to receive his or her Jackpot payment and will be issued either a 1099 or W2G for their winnings.

 

  • Any violation of these rules could result in the voiding of the Bad Beat Jackpot.

 

  • Management reserves the right to alter or cancel this promotion at any time with or without warning.
