PokerStars Road to 100 Billion: 85 Billionth Hand
August 13, 2012
The 85 billionth hand will soon be dealt at PokerStars online poker site, proving that the Internet poker phenomenon was hardly phased by Black Friday and the US DOJ. And to celebrate this amazing event, PokerStars will be paying out $1 million to cash players participating in online poker at PokerStars.
The 85 billionth hand is predicted to fall sometime in the next couple weeks at a PS cash table. The winner of the 85 billionth hand is guaranteed $10K. Other milestone hands between 84.7 billion and 85 billion will also be celebrated.
PokerStars celebrated its 80 billionth hand earlier this summer, and it’s only taken a few months for another five billion hands to fall. A Spanish player won more than $22K back in May when he won the 80 billionth hand, and his fellow opponents at the table also got $10K for just being dealt into the hand, and it wasn’t a high-stakes cash game either. It could literally happen anywhere at any time on the site.
This promotion is part of the Road to 100 Billion, as PokerStars celebrates every five billion hands dealt on the site. At the current rate, the 100 billionth hand is expected to fall sometime next year.
