It's been another busy week in the world of PokerStars and in this blog we bring you our usual round-up of all the interesting numbers in this crazy game.

The palindromic ‘milestone hand’ number that PokerStars dealt on February 1 at a $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold’em Zoom table. It was won by ‘millance84’ who took down the pot of $4.63 with a flush.

$1,600,000 (AUD)
First prize awarded to 22-year-old Canadian Ami Barer, after he defeated fellow Canadian Sorel Mizzi in the APPT Aussie Millions Main Event. The tournament took place at the Crown Casino, Melbourne.

Total prize pool at the Estrellas Poker Tour Season 5 Main Event in Madrid, which saw more than 700 players from 28 countries compete for the title. The eventual champion was Victor Antoranz, with the Spaniard picking up the largest payout of €97,363 after a three-way deal was done.
Blog report: 

Number of extra players registered for the EPT Grand Final Main Event versus the same time last year. Of the registrants to date, 22 players won a €14,000 package in last weekend’s $11 Mega Qualifier event on – more than double the 10 packages that were guaranteed.
