Greek micro grinder wins PokerStars 100 billionth hand
Friday, 14 June 2013
It's extremely rare that a player sitting at a $0.02/$0.05 can scoop a six figure score but one lucky Greek player managed just that yesterday as PokerStars dealt its 100 billionth hand.
Microulis69 was the winner of the milestone hand and boosted his bankroll by $103,800 when his middle J5 middle pair took down a $32.91 pot. His fellow players at the six-max table shared a further $65,460 with 9,471 more players splitting another $830,790.34 in cash rewards for playing at the same type of game and stakes when the 100-billionth hand was dealt.
The 100 Billion Hands Celebrations
continue for the next fortnight with a host of great promotions offering some serious prizes. Top of the bill is a $1 buy-in World Record Tournament on June 16 at 6pm UK time that features a $300,000 guaranteed prize pool with the winner taking home at least $25,000.
The celebrations on PokerStars
continue throughout the rest of the month, with the following events offering more than $2.5 million in prize money:
Golden Sit & Go’s (June 17-23)
Zoom 100 (June 23)
Zoom and BOOM! (June 24-30)
