Greek Poker Player Wins $103,800 At $0.02/$0.05 Cash Table

Greek Poker Player Wins $103,800 At $0.02/$0.05 Cash TableA Greek micro-stakes online player has just made the biggest score of his poker life, after winning a whopping $103,800 whilst playing at a PokerStars $0.02/$0.05 cash table. However, the huge win was all about being at the right place at the right time, as ‘microulis69’ was lucky enough to have been dealt PokerStars’ 100 Billionth Hand.
PokerStars first launched in 2001 and has since grown to become the world’s largest online poker room with earnings of more than $1 billion each year. As part of its 100 Billionth Hand celebrations, the site subsequently announced a special payout for those players seated at one of their virtual tables when the hand was dealt, and at the time when the jackpot was released 400,000 players were online hoping to be the lucky winner.
Just before the milestone hand took place on Thursday, the table froze and a message appeared on the screen, announcing: “We are about to deal the 100 Billionth Hand on PokerStars at this table! We have paused the dealing to allow for spectators to find the table and watch the hand. A host will arrive shortly to guide you through the hand. Every player at the table will walk away with at least $10,000, and the winner of the hand will win at least $100,000!”
After the hand was dealt at the 6-Max cash table, microulis69 (J-5) made second pair on an A-2-J-9-10 board to claim the lion’s share of the $169,260 payout, with his fellow competitors HeyitsClay (K-6), Mayers666 (7-3), ModyMiss (2-8), doc836 (Q-6), GlassGagguas (K-3) splitting the remaining $65,460 between themselves.
Here’s a look at what each of the players then received:
microulis69: $103,800
doc836: $13,440
HeyitsClay: $13,440
GlassGagguas: $13,360
MoodyMiss: $12,760
Mayers666 $12,460
In addition to these lucky players, a further $830,790 in cash rewards was distributed amongst the 9,471 other PokerStars players in action at its cash tables while the 100-billionth hand was dealt.
