I saw this announcement yesterday when I logged in PS, but I haven’t had the chance to view the hand. MenFedlak must have suffered a bit with his disconnection problem, right in the middle of a Milestone Hand, how improbable can that be? He will never know if he could have won more, but he must be happy in the same for having won $10k although disconnected. That should he been even fun, to see is face looking at his cashier when he finally made to log in again!

I was a little slow figuring out what to do to get in on the action for ANY of the payouts for the Road to a Billion thing. It wasn't until right near the end of the event that I clued in it's CASH tables you had to play to win at least SOMETHING,...even if it wasn't the BIG one...
...even winning one of the lesser prizes would be very nice...!

What I some many times and what I don't understand, is that are quite some players who were on a table with a milestone hand and did not know what to do. They did not even go all-in. That is sooo much a waste of opportunity. I mean, even if you dont know, and you see everyone happy and go all in preflop, so got to understand that you need to go all in know.
And how could they not be aware of that promo at all???
