PokerStars 60 Billionth Hand Pays $102,090 To UK Player

UK online player “Pogo650” has just hit the score of a lifetime, after winning PokerStars’ 60 billionth hand bonus for a massive $102,090 pay-day.
Playing at 2:39 in the afternoon UK time, “Pogo650” and five other players couldn’t believe their good fortune after beating the other 200,000 people playing on the site to the milestone hand.
A message then popped up on the six-max $5/$10 limit hold’em table informing the players of what to expect. In other words, all the players were guaranteed at least $500 with prizes increasing according to the amount of VIP Player Points they’d accumulated at the table over the past 50 hands.
In addition, HostBob then informed the players:
“The winner of the hand will have their prize money doubled. On top of that, they will receive an extra $60,000. And you can’t win a hand by folding,” after which observer and Team PokerStars Pro Pat Pezzin quipped “Play good,” knowing full well no one would want to fold their hand.
Amazingly, DrPepel then folded to a bet but with all the other remaining players sticking around to the river hoping to claim the top prize as their own.
Even more surprisingly, with the board falling 2h-Ks-3h-6d-9d it was “Pogo650” with Qc-3h and only a low pair to show who eventually ended up scooping the $147 pot, but more importantly the $102,090 prize for winning the 60 billionth hand.
Observers were quick to then chip in, with Team Online’s cnew27 typing; “Sometimes all you need is a pair,” and Team Pro Pappe_Ruk adding; “You are rich now.”
Following his incredible piece of good luck, “Pogo650” later commented: “I’m possibly the biggest luckbox alive over the last week or so. Two losing sessions ended in milestone hands.”
However, “Pogo650” wasn’t the only player at the table celebrating and even the smallest winner at the table MeisterHahn banked $11,040 with all the other players pocketing $21,045.
Congratulations goes to all the lucky players at the table who received a share of the nearly $200,000 prize pool.
