PokerStars Milestone Hands underway - $200k won in two days

Tuesday, 1 November 2011

The Road to 100,000,000,000 marches on at PokerStars with the next milestone hand (the 70 billionth dealt at the site) pending, meaning that once again PokerStars are bringing out the big guns to reward the players who have enabled them to deal almost seventy billion hands of poker to people around the world.

Over the past weekend, the promotion began with 300 hands – every millionth – rewarding over $200,000 to just a few players. The first was dealt at hand #69,700,000,000 and awarded a total of $4,019.50 to nine players competing at a random table. For every VPP earned at the table in the past 50 hands, Milestone Hand competitors receive $50. The winner receives double the money.

This results in players at stakes as low as $0.01/$0.02 receiving prizes of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. However, the one you want to get grinding for is the big seven-zero-zero-zero-zero-you get the idea. The winner of that hand will not only earn $500 for each VPP plus the doubled prize money but also an additional $70,000.

Just several months ago, “yllams” from New Zealand won the 65bnth hand and received over $65,000 to cap off a promotion that awarded $770k to 1,600 players in just a few days. So load up the small stakes tables and get grinding!
