PokerStars has been running some fantastic promotions lately as a part of its 10 year anniversary. However, the most popular one so far must have been the 72 Billionth Hand Promotion. On Sunday, December 11th, when over 400,000 players were logged into the site, 6 lucky players on a $.02/$.05 table were dealt into the hand. All players went all in pre-flop and a player called "Kozlicek_x", from Czech Republic, won the hand with a set of sevens. For the win he got the pot of $27 + $24,300 in prize money. The other players received a minimum of $12,100 each. 

What's next?
On Sunday Pokerstars 10th Anniversary celebration is back with an amazing $10 million Sunday Million tournament at 14:30 EST. The buy-in will be $215 (satellites running around the clock) and the winner will take home at least $2 million! 1 hour after the Sunday Million starts, there will also be a $10,000 High Roller event, which most probably will attract some big names.

That was a very lucky poker table, especially it was a microstakes cash table. Luck is that you need to win these milestone hands.

Iam really happy that thew prize was dealt in a micro table. This promotion is made basically for microplayers like me. I wish pokerstars keep this promotion for the whole million hands and not for the last 300 million.

Wow! Now this is what I call a good shot. Finally, a big prize went right into the pockets of some probably regular normal micro/low stakes players. This is what everybody wanted to testify and finally happened. Its not bigger fish who plays with fortune and are able to bet their own financial stability that can win prizes like this. Little fish and first time playing donks can also get it! This last sentence can look a bit ironic, but now everyone knows they have a chance to play a promo hand, its not needed to be playing in higher flights, it can be right in our $0.02/$0.05 table. Pokerstars just grew 200% in my consideration after this news!

Hi all!!

Microstakes poweeeer!!!!!

A nice boost to the bank of the participants in the hand (if there were any 'sitout' already be pulled down by a bridge).
