Today I managed to hit a high hand and got the jackpot for a straight flush aswell as stacking my opponent who held the Ahigh flush happy days.
Afterwards I read the rules around the high hand payout and
1.you have to use both your hole cards
2. Have placed 15bb into the pot before hitting the high hand
It made me think imagine this scenario you open AQs to 2.5bb and get called in one spot or you open and get 3bet to 8bb you call then flop a royal you wouldn't receive the jackpot which at the stakes I was playing would of been around $1000
The jackpot stood at $2000ish and for a royal you get 50% straight flush was 20%
