“funex700” wins PokerStars’ 80 billionth hand for $23,000

Wednesday, 9 May 2012

PokerStars dealt their 80,000,000,000th hand over the weekend with the lucky table being Rosa V, a $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Hold’em full ring game. The pot, once all players had shoved, stood at $214.90 but that paled in comparison to the prize on offer.

In the end, “funex700” managed to hold up when his A5o made two pair and he scooped the nine-way pot, plus a bonus prize of $22,940. All eight other players won at least $10,000 with the amount varying depending on their VPPs earned in the previous hands at the table.

The next PokerStars milestone hand is the 85 billionth but at this rate it will hit before you’ve finished reading this news piece.
