B000000M! More than $200,000 won through BOOM! already
Are you ready for some Friday night BOOM!ing? We certainly hope so. We launched the B000000M! promotion on Monday to celebrate (what we hoped would be) the week that the 1,000,000th PokerStars hand was BOOM!ed. We cracked that nut today with what was an epic hand*, which you can see below. You've still got until Sunday to win some bonus B0000000M! cash - at 100 big blinds a pop - by winning with the hand of the day, which has today been chosen by Randy 'nanonoko' Lew. You can find out more about BOOM! by clicking through this link.
*It was not an epic hand, but it might make you chuckle that it won 'Zakvcho' a Sunday Million ticket.
Friday, 26 October Q♦[10c]
Why this hand? Randy 'nanonoko' Lew, holder of the world record for most hands played in an eight hour period, is well known to be an online poker crushing machine. His live credentials had been questioned though. Right up to Lew won APPT Macau for HKD $3,772,000! Follow in Lew's footsteps by winning stacks of cash with Q♦T♣.
What you need to do?
You need to win at showdown with the B000000M! hand of the day. It must also be at a Zoom Hold 'em table and then BOOM!ed. Go to the B000000M! promotion page to find out exactly what you need to do.
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).
We've now given out $207,246 in B000000M! windfall payments after yesterday handing out 1,186 prizes worth $60,656. Everyone seems to be getting involved; Team PokerStars Online's Grzegorz 'DaWarsaw' Mikielewic and EPT Sanremo winner Rupert Elder have both successfully BOOM!ed today but they're still chasing 'Dintyo' who has now raked in $8,000, while 'Analyser2' has been the most vociferous with 18 bonuses picked up so far! Three days of B000000M! remain so get stuck in.
You can find out the hands of the day for the rest of the week by clicking through to the PokerStars Blog B000000M! preview.
The 1,000,000 BOOM! man
The PokerStars back-office boffins thought that our millionth BOOM! poster deserved some congratulations and so 'Zakvcho' from Armenia will find a $215 ticket to the PokerStars Sunday Million next time they open their account. That's quite some reward for BOOM!ing the following play money hand...
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 8♥8♦ on a Monday, or 4♠A♥ on a Tuesday. Check the main site for full terms and conditions.
