article imagePokerStars aiming for 85 billionth hand

By Alexander Baron     Aug 15, 2012 in Entertainment
PokerStars, the world's largest poker site, will soon be dealing its 85 billionth hand. The person who wins this hand will receive at least $20,000.
This is a promotion for cash game players only, though currently depositors - including new players - are eligible for a series of special freeroll tournaments. Next month there is also a heavy tournament schedule for those with deep pockets as the site begins its World Championship Of Online Poker. Meanwhile, the site is giving away money on landmark hands all the way to its 100 billionth hand.
Party Poker and its sister site WPT have also got a special promotion going, a series of freerolls with easy qualification. Free money, but not easy money. The screengrabs below are from WPT last night. A bit of luck, three and a half hours plus at the table, and our hero walked away with a clear $1.60 profit. Good thing he can multi-task, otherwise he'd starve.
