Massive $653K Bad Beat Jackpot Hit On BetOnline


If you play online poker, you probably know a thing or two about bad beats; but hopefully you’ve never experienced one quite like this.

On May 25th, 2017, BetOnline Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot was triggered when user catfancy’s 9-high straight flush was cracked on the river by the jack-high straight flush from pygmy416.

The total jackpot exceeded $653,000.00, but 30% was withheld to reseed the next jackpot. What would you do with this amount of life-changing money?
