PokerStars sets table for 80 billionth hand

100-bill-blog-thumb.PNGGrab a cup of coffee, put a pillow in the seat of your computer chair, and get ready to get back on the road, because PokerStars just opened up a new highway on the Road to 100 Billion.

Today, PokerStars announced that its 80 billionth hand will be hitting some time very soon. If you've been a player on PokerStars for very long, you know that when big things start happening, big money starts flying. It's more than a big paper cut risk. It's a chance to win a small fortune.

Between now and the time the 80 billionth hand hits, PokerStars will be giving away up to $1 million in prizes. Every millionth hand from 79,700,000,000 to 80,000,000,000 will be worth thousands of dollars to the people lucky enough to be seated in the right place at the right time.

And, of course, PokerStars has something big planned for the 80 billionth hand. Whoever wins that one will get at least $20,000.

Note the words "at least" in that last sentence.

See, the way this thing works is that you get paid more for your milestone hand victories based on the number of VIP Player Points you have earned at the tables since you sat down. The more you play and the higher your VIP Club level, the more you can win.

When the 75 billionth hand hit, it ended in a split pot, which meant two people ended up with big cash instead of one.

Now it's time to turn our attention to the 80 billionth hand. Keep your eye on the corner of the PokerStars lobby to see when the next milestone hand is going to hit.

Good luck!
