Default Bad Beat Jackpot coming to Borgata Dec. 1st

Two separate dealers told me they are going to have a meeting/training for it this week. Also, I saw a sign in Tropicana AC that they will also start theirs Dec. 1st as well. I don't know any of the details of it in either room. This will leave the Taj as the only AC casino without one as far as I know.

This is really annoying if true.
How do they rake for BBJs in timed games anyway?

If I wanted to play the lottery, I'd buy a ticket. When I want to play poker, I'd prefer the rake to be as small as possible - i.e. stop pulling the extra dollar to feed a prize pool I'm very unlikely to ever see a piece of.

Default IT SUCKS THAT A Bad Beat Jackpot is coming to Borgata Dec. 1st

I can't wait until the new poker room opens up in the Revel. That's where we will all be playing soon.

Hopefully the BBJ will only apply to 2/4 to 5/10 limit games and 1/2 NL

I think this is definitely a bad idea. However, I would be very surprised if this applies to timed games, esp. with Taj now getting competitive in this area. Taj is competing in every ares besides 40-80 hold em and bigger NL, and I don't think Borg wants to drive any of the bigger players away.

Dealer (who also does floor) said that they are getting trained in a few days, but that the Borgata is funding the jackpot. She also said that it is for the month of December, only.

If that's accurate, fine, though it isn't a promotion i would value highly. If it somehow turns into something like they have at other casinos and isn't limited to games i don't play, it will be really annoying.
