I guess one has to be very very lucky to get involved in one of those hands.
Nevertheless, does anyone know if Zoom Poker also counts towards these hands ?

No, it has to be a regular cash table.

Surely you wait until the dealt hands nears around the million mark and then start multitabling like crazy?

Low stakes and stay in hands.

Not necessarily, the potential prize is calculated on how many vpps earned while at the table.

There’s always something in Stars that makes us wanting to go there. Even if it isnt a direct prize, these indirect ones are also so appelative that everyone wants to have the oportunity to get them. These are really like a lotery, we just have to guarantee the presence in a table a bit before the hand comes and then it’s just wait to see if it gets us. Everyone wins, no matter the hand, although the winner of the hand gets a bit more than the others, so is always good. We just have to be there playing!

Damn! I'm about ready to send my resume to some other copuntries just so I can play poker without the government wanting to be in control. This is ridiculous that U.S. citizens can hardly find a place to play let alone trying to find ways to deposit or withdraw without issues.

Any coincidence this came out very shortly before FT goes back online?

I know they are now both Ps owned but still, you have to keep your customers.

I find it extremely funny that now PS is basing the "prize" on rake contributed prior to the hand. Last time, 2 players sat at a bunch of HU tables and just folded to each other repeatedly until they luckily hit the landmark hand. There was a LOT of people who this pissed off, especially since these players essentially won the prize without paying ANY rake (no flop no drop rule).

PS basically told everyone "sorry our hands are tied" and ended up honoring the prize. This just pissed people off even more. Personally I say "wah" to the players crying about it. Even if they hadn't done it, chances are any given player had next to 0 chance of hitting the hand anyways.

At least Stars was smart enough to make sure it didn't happen again, plus they made sure they will generate even MORE rake as players chase a dream they likely will never get. It's pure genius on Stars part.

I think these hands are a great idea. Why not you are playing your normal game and have a chance at the extra bonus. All you have to do is multi table say 4 tables and play your normal game. If you are lucky enough to get on one of these milestone hands fair play to you.

The calculation goes on the amount of VPP's you have earn't over the last 50 hands $60.00 per VPP. (plus if you win the hand they double the prize money from that hand)

Just go all in on the table on one of these hands and hope you have some dummies on your table that fold.

GL to any mobster who get in on this............Let us know if you do.

Actually how many VPPs earned during the last 50 hands. So you probably want to try to play about 45min-1hr before it hits.
