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.
