PokerStars 80 Billionth Hand Nets Funex700 $22,940

PokerStars 80 Billionth Hand Nets Funex700 $22,940PokerStars launched real money play back in December, 2001, and a little over ten years later the poker room has dealt its 80 billionth hand which was celebrated as part of its ongoing 100 billionth milestone hand promotion.
The winner of the hand was Spanish player funex700 who was sitting at a 10c/25c no-limit hold’em table of nine, when a pop-up announcement suddenly congratulated the lucky players of being dealt into the 80 billionth hand. Not surprisingly, the news was greeted by an outpouring of euphoric emotions from some of the players, with a snippet of the conversation gong as follows:
Starfighte86: OMG
PatrickStoia: yes
Starfighte86: this is so wonderful
Starfighte86: i could cry 😀
After the cards were dealt on Sunday afternoon, all the players immediately went all-in pre-flop with stacks which ranged from $11.13 up to $48.95 to form a pot worth around $212. The players also held a rag-tag assortment of cards from 7-2 to A-8, but in the end it was funex700 who hit runner-runner to clean up on the Q-4-10-A-5 board.
Consequently, Spanish player funex700 picked-up $22,940 for his incredible win, while all the other players received at least $10,000 a piece just for being at the right place at the right time.
Congratulation to all the micro-stakes players at the table, whose bankrolls have probably never looked so healthy after their hefty windfalls. Next stop on PokerStars promotion train is now the 85 billionth hand.
