Absolute Poker’s Bad Beat Jackpot Approaches $700,000

The recently announced bad beat jackpot at Absolute poker keeps growing back every time it gets taken down by someone.

The online poker tables at Absolute Poker are filling up faster than ever after the popular online poker site reported that their current Bad Beat Jackpot is quickly approaching $700,000.

By 9am ET on Monday, the jackpot of Absolute Poker’s popular Bad Beat Jackpot Texas Hold'em game had reached $667,000. 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.

The larger-than-life jackpot eclipses Absolute Poker’s own record of $464,652.03. What’s more, the Absolute jackpot is nearly twice as big as Party Poker’s (a site not open to US players).

The next player to lose a hand holding four 8s or anything better will win a large piece of the jackpot. The participants in the bad beat hand will also share in the jackpot.

Full details can be found at Absolute Poker.
