In this case your luck couldn't be better as the players will be awarded with 70% of the progressive jackpot (20% goes to the next jackpot, 10% is taken for administration). The loser of the hand (the bad beat victim) will take 50% of the prize money, 25% go to the winner of he hand and the remaining 25% will be distributed among the other active players on the Bad Beat table.
Here is the feature Bad Beat story of one of the Absolute Poker player:
"My worst bad beat came online. I had pocket 10's and i raised 3 times the blind preflop and I had one caller. The flop came out 2, 10, 10. After checking my pants, all I was thinking was how I was going to extract the most chips from the poor sucker who was still in the hand (by the way I put him on a higher pocket pair than mine). So I checked with my monster hand and just like I thought he would, he bet the pot. Perfect."
'I smooth called the sucker and the turn brings a jack. All I was thinking now is I hope he has pocket jacks. I check again and he moves all-in." continued the author.
"After checking my pants one more time, I quickly call cause now I put him on pocket jacks. Cards are turned over and I'm not surprised that he has pocket jacks. By now, the pot is up to about 340.00 dollars."
"Without saying much more, I'm sure you can guess what happened next, lucky bastard! All i wanted to do after that was throw my computer out the window and into the street where it could get crushed like John Bobbitt's pecker."
