I doesn't feel like a long time ago since PokerStars had the 72 Billionth Hand promotion, and now it's once again time to celebrate a big milestone hand, the 75 billionth hand! As usual when PokerStars celebrates something lots of prize money is up for grabs.

After reading that the 72 billionth hand was dealt in a ring table of $0.10/$0.20 or $0.50/$1 (something like that, but I remember it was low) this gives me the will to go for Pokerstars tables waiting for luck to come on my side. Like me, many players from there should think the same, and this is probably what the room just wants to happen. But, if a prize like this comes to my hands, will I care about how much did Pokerstars won just for promoting this event? Who cares, let’s try and win!

who thinks that is so luck to win the 75th billion habd...first of all you have to be lucky to play that hand and after that to win it...what are the odds? like u play AA against 55 and the flop is A 10 7 or much worst...i think these are the odds to play this hand and to win it...anyway is a good price for the winner of this hand but i don`t hope for that

75 billionth hand promotion is the best I have seen so far on any pokersite. This is giving to their playerbase who have supported these great pokerooms for so long. Pokerstars keep it up with the great promotions.

Here's what happened: ($1/$2 Limit hold'em)
As expected, all players raised merry hell out of the 5s3s7s flop, and the 6h turn and Tc river. In fact, it was pretty much capped out down every street. At the end of it, acer2831 showed 3h4h for a straight, while edroqui07 had 5d4d for the same straight.
And then they all waited with baited breath to find out what they had one. Each were already guaranteed $10,000 just for being in the 75 Billionth hand, then they got an extra $1,000 for every VPP they had earmed at the table in the previous 50 hands. The hand winners would get their prize doubled.
HostBob asked everyone to wait while he got out his famous calculator. After a few moments, he came back with these numbers, getting so nice reactions:
edroqui07: $42,810... "yeeeaaaaaaaaaa" acer2831: $34,600 i-268: $19,450... "awesome, ty" ant_poker: $19,010... "ooooh" Sebastfrz: $16,970.... pavl007: $16,970... "enough for a sandwich"
