B000000M! $61,796 won yesterday with ElkY's hand, win more today
Yesterday we launched a week-long B000000M! promotion to celebrate the approaching milestone of one million hands shared on our BOOM! Hand Replayer. By the end of the day's play $61,796 had been won in 100 big blind chunks by players around the world winning with Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier's chosen hand 8♦8♥ (and who remembered to BOOM! it). Check out the full promotion details here and you can learn more about the BOOM! Hand Replayer right here.
Yesterday we profiled all seven hands that can win you 100 extra big blinds this week simply by winning at showdown. You can see them here, but for today you need to focus on winning with David Williams' A♥4♠.
What you need to do?
You need to win at showdown with the B000000M! hand of the day. It must also be from a Zoom table and then BOOM!ed.
What do you get?
You win 100 big blinds at the level you were playing (along with the pot you've just won, of course).
Tuesday, 23 October A♥4♠
Why this hand? David Williams finished runner-up to Greg Raymer in the 2004 WSOP Main Event for $3,500,000. Both players made a full house on the river but Williams' paired four was trumped by Raymer's pocket eights.
Please Note: Hands of the Day must be won and shared via BOOM! between 00:00 ET and 23:59 ET on each specific day. Hands won but not shared to BOOM! between these hours on the same day will not be eligible for the promotion. Only hands won on Zoom poker tables will qualify. You can win with both combinations of each hand, for example 8h-8d on a Monday, or 4s-Ah on a Tuesday. Check the main site for full terms and conditions.
