PokerStars 95 Billionth Hand Rolls In

shutterstock_110198744All the talk of the 100 Billionth hand has been rocking PokerStars and just yesterday the 50 million membership site reached the 95 Billionth hand.

What a milestone for the most reputable site out there and as usual a massive sum of money was thrown at a lucky table, although one player appears to have missed out by sitting out! More on that later…

The player that took down the 95th Billionth hand was “RichB17” taking away $23,920 bolstering his or her poker bankroll. The table was a low stakes $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Holdem table called Pasiphae. As the hand was counted in as number 95 billion the action came to a standstill and all the players threw their chips into the middle. At the time there were 202,761 members spread across the site.

All players at the table received a minimum of $10,000 each while one would walk away with the pot, which was low! and the $23,920 prize for winning the hand.

The player that cut out was a Hungarian under the screen name of “Menfedlak”. His connection was on the blink and he was given a thirty minute window to get his act together and get his chips into the hand for a chance at the massive windfall. However, he couldn’t get there in the end and missed out on a chance at the top payout prize. He still managed to get himself a nice $10,240 in exchange for just a $15.38 chip stack.

The Winning Hand As It Happened

All the players went all in building up a pot of $114.53 to play for with the bonus that was 149,500 times the big blind.

The board read 3d-Qd-2c-6h-5h with 8 players in with a shout at the big giveaway prize.

After the board was down all the players waited in anticipation of a winner as at first “Domy07” turned over his Js-Qc hand with what looked the winning hand with a pair of queens and a strong Jack kicker. As the action swung round and there multiple mucks, probably because the auto-muck feature was in action, finally “RichB17” must sent a shockwave down the spine of “Domy07” who looked like the sure winner.

With the 4h-Jc hand “RichB17” had gained a gut shot straight draw on the turn giving him what was at the time 8% odds of making the inside 5 card. The river was kind and the 5h came out nicely while avoiding the 5d which would have possibly given another player a flush. With the river giving “RichB17”the gut shot the prize was settled with one low stakes poker player boosting his ROI well above average.
