Visitors of Lac-Leamy Casino located in Canada became the witnesses of the legendary bad beat jackpot hand. One of the poker players named Semaan had Four of a Kind of 10 on the showdown, while his rival Yvon Lalond had Four of a Kind of jacks. According to the casino rules, this is the pure jackpot case.
The prize fund at that time was equal to $ 516,000. The main jackpot condition was to lose with the Four Of a Kind combination from a minimum of 10 card values; this is precisely what happened that evening. Fadi, the player who lost, received 40% of the jackpot ($ 206,000), and the winner Yvon with jacks received 20%, which is equal to $ 103,000.
Five other participants in the table had their own prize money. Each of them received $ 20,000, and the rest $ 103,000 of money was distributed among casino visitors, who were at that moment at other poker tables.
The biggest bad beat jackpot in live poker history was struck in 2017 at the Playground Poker Club. Then the players shared about $ 1,000,000 among themselves. The video from this historical moment can be seen below:
