According to How do you get a pirate hat, the highest answer that outscores an accepted answer with a score of 3 or more or by 2x or more wins a pirate hat.

I remember that a few days ago, as it happened, I answered a question and got 6 score, finally the OP accepted his/her own answer with 0 score.

This is what I thought I have met the requirement of a pirate hat, but why did't I get one?

    Because the accepted answer needs to have a score of 3 at least. It has 0. – Martijn Pieters Dec 30 '12 at 13:55

The pirate hat requires that the accepted answer has a score of 3 or higher:

provide the highest scoring answer that outscores an accepted answer with a score of 3 or more by 2x or more

In your case the accepted answer only has a score of 0.
