PokerStars set to deal 60 billionth hand – you can win six figures

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

We know it seems like just last week that PokerStars celebrated dealing out their 50,000,000,000th hand of poker and tbvle received $57,140 for being in the right place at the right time, sitting down at a $0.02/$0.05 NL 6-max table that was dealt hand number 50bn.

In fact, it was around six months ago, give or take, that PokerStars dealt that milestone. In that time they’ve dealt another 9,605,352,037... wait, no, 9,605,401,034... wait, no... well, you get the point. The hands are racking up and at the time of writing there are only three more milestone hands left before the big 60,000,000,000.

Players in milestone hands will receive $50 for every VPP they have earned in the previous 50 hands at the table. If they win, they receive four times that amount. The winner of the milestone hand itself receives $500 for every VPP earned at the table plus a staggering $60,000 on top; potentially over $100,000 is to be won by the milestone hand winner.

Well, we don’t know about you but we’re off to 24-table PokerStars microstakes PLO. Should be confusing.
