m1sspiggy Wins PokerStars' 90 Billionth Hand! ($66,380)
90 billionth hand, milestone hands, pokerstars, promotion, road to 100 billion.
Posted on 30 November 2012 by "T".
Almost every hour in the past week players have been dealt into milestone hands on PokerStars and received cash prizes, but the big one, the 90 billionth hand, occurred yesterday. The hand was played at a $1/$2 no-limit hold'em table and 6 lucky players received a total of $229,630!
After a few minutes of setting up the milestone hand, all players wished each other good luck and moved all in preflop for a total $1,689. The board slowly ran out Q7945, and "m1sspiggy" took home the main pot of $1,220, plus another $66,380 for winning the promotion, with 2 pair. The other players split $162,150 - a minimum of $14,000 each.
In total, players won more than $1,150,000 in bonus money during the 90 billionth hand promotion, which is a part of PokerStars' Road to 100 Billion promotion. The 90 billionth party is now in the books, but you only have to wait until February before it's time for the 95 billionth hand, and then the 100 billionth hand will be played sometime in May.
m1sspiggy -- $66,380.00
Balázska87 -- $36,370.00
carambaWOW -- $14,770.00
Kud3 -- $32,190.00

| Now, the 90 billionth party is done, but, unlike most parties, you don't have to go home. In fact, you should stay right here. If the math holds, PokerStars will likely deal its 95 billiionth hand sometime in February, and then will reach the end of the Road to 100 Billion sometime in May. |

| wow just amazing luck- to win the tournament is one thing: you have to sweat for several hours, be lucky & skillful too, deal with nerves etc. but to win the "jackpot" it totally different: you just have to be lucky enough to sit at the lucky table...yeah u have to win the lucky hand too- but even if u dont, u still walk away with some cash for no work from your side...|

| If you are luckty enough to sit at the right table, who cares that you ll loose the hand.|
The price you win is a lot more than you put in, evben if you loose.
If you win the price just gets bigger... so there just winners and no looseres at the table

Of course !! they are doing business !not donor If 2 cent have same chance why play $ 2 ?
That's also mean if we no have bigger capital we just have smaller chance
That's universe doing. FAIR enough, right ?

| Hey what a result even being able to find a table was hard enough. All the very low stake NLH games were full with big waiting lists around an hour before the 90 millionth hand. I was there playing FL and won a nice little stack then when 5pm GMT hit with the big hand, everyone cleared out! Well done misspiggy|

| Goooood for them, i really wonder why PS don't pay at high stakes btw, i think now the 4 7 is his favorite cards |

| When the hand ticker eventually hit the magic milestone it was $1/$2 six-max table "Ornamenta" that enjoyed a moment of calm before the celebrations began.|
A succession of all-ins pushed the pot up to $1,688, but it was the lion's share of $229,630 that everyone had their eye on. After the flop rolled out: Qh7h9c4s5d and the dust settled it was "m1sspiggy" who held a winning two pair with 7c4c.
Messages of congratulations filled the chat box as the mid-stakes grinder banked a total of $66,380, leaving the rest of the table to bank at least $14,000 each.

| One of the big dreams of PS players has become true, at least for six of them. Taking in consideration the hundreads of thousands they are, there are still more disapointed players than happy ones, but this is like playing on the lotery, if you haven't played than you can't cry for not having won. Nice prize, and this time everyone played the hand!|
