To win the jackpot at the Bicycle you need aces full of tens or better is beaten by four of a kind or better and they have to be the two best hands at showdown and all four hole cards have to play.
There is no way for 23o to make a qualifying hand at the same time an opponent makes a qualifying hand.
You can't use both cards for aces full or a straight flush. If you make quads it's impossible for an opponent to make a qualifying hand without the board nullifying your kicker.
