PokerStars Deals its 95 Billionth Hand

On Monday, PokerStars reached another milestone on the Road to 100 Billion Hands, dealing their 95 billionth hand. The monumental hand was dealt on a $.08/$.16 table named "Pasiphae," and "RichB17" won the hand, earning him $23,920.

PokerStars 95 Billionth Hand

Player Prize
RichB17 $23,920
pacheko23980 $14,800 (bulgarian)
yanno $13,070
soya-aware $12,400
SAURO1980 $12,240
popp00 $12,000
Dummkobb $11,700
Domy07 $11,660
MenFedlak $10,240
According to Lee Jones, who moderated the hand, the prize money was supplemented by the number of VPPs the players earned in the 50 hands at the table leading up to the 95 billionth hand.

Before the drama unfolded, play was halted at the table to allow spectators to view the outcome of the hand.

The table was paused for an extended period, however, because Hungarian "MenFedlak" was disconnected from the server. Jones announced to the table that they would wait for up to a half hour for the player to reconnect.

"Whats [sic] wrong with internets [sic] in Hungary, lol," one player at the table typed.

Finally, the hand was dealt, and every play but the Hungarian moved all in preflop

Initially, it looked as if "Domy07" won the hand with {q-Clubs}{j-Spades} on a board of {3-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, but at the very last second, "RichB17" slapped over {j-Clubs}{4-Hearts} for a straight. He won the lion's share of over $122,000 in prizes, while each other player at the table, even the Hungarian, earned over $10,000.

After the hand, Jones thanked and congratulated the players at the table. He also said something about the upcoming 100 billionth hand:

"Oh and if you think this was great, wait until you see what we have planned for the 100 BILLIONTH hand. It will be spectacular."
