In case you missed it: PokerStars recently announced that they were going to celebrate milestone hand 60,000,000,000 with some fantastic cash prizes for the players who were dealt into the hand. More than 200,000 people were playing on PokerStars when the 60 billionth hand was dealt on a FLH $5/$10 table. The 6 lucky players on that table were just a minute or two away from winning some nice cash.

A PokerStars host joined the table and informed all the players that they were guaranteed $500 and all of their prizes would be increased based on the number of VIP Players Points they had earned in the past 50 hands. The winner of the hand would get at least $60,000. The host then told the table "The winner of the hand will have their prize money doubled. On top of that, they will receive an extra $60,000. And you can't win a hand by folding".

All players at the table except 'DrPepel', who probably didn't understand what the host just had said, got involved in the hand and called all the way to the river. Winner of the hand was 'Pogo650' with Q3 offsuit. He took home the hand with a pair of 3's and won $102,090 (+the $147 pot). The smallest winner at the table was 'MeisterHahn who got $11,040. The rest of the pack received $21,045 each - that included DePepel, who claimed to have folded 2 4, which wouldn't have helped him anyway.

talk about being a luckbox..haha. I don't mind winning even $10 with Q3 off!

this is such a luck to happen being in this table. Perhaps this is way there aren't many rooms with events like this, they also dont have this huge amount of regular 24hour/day players. Eventhough, looks strange, in minimum (at least to me) that this hand had just been in a $2/$5 blinds. This people play with big amounts of money and, although a prize like this is always good, i bet all of them have already spent more than $10,000 in Pokerstars. I am not saying the 60,000,000,000 was inducted to there, but its strange. Everyone has to agree with me that it would be nice to see some fools playing $0.01/$0.02 blinds cash game seeing this advice on the screen. They sure would be screaming all the way long through the hand, looking for a way to save the moment on the screen Smile Smile Smile i would Smile

Lesson learned: Never fold a junk hand at joker stars. Big Smile

At any given time on Pokerstars there are tens of thousands of tables open, so to be at the table chosen is like winning the lottery. Congrats to the winners!
 SimonBolivar02/04/2011 10:55:05 GMT
I can still not understand whats the point of givin money away forcing people to play stupid.
 Fingers02/04/2011 20:17:59 GMT
doesnt make any sense to me, a CHOSEN TABLE? means if they are playing on a chosen table the hand is not actually the 60 Billionth hand, the money should have been awarded to the player who played the actual 60 Billionth Hand. Wish i had won Sad
