Anybody watch it? I think it was at a 6-Max $5/$10 FLHE table. One guy folded, and the winning hand ended up being Q3o, with a pair of threes, if I remember right. The guy got over $100,000. About $200,000 between everyone there. Lowest prize was $11,000. Crazy.

I got to my computer as the 599,999,000,000th hand was being dealt and raced to get to a few tables, but everything from the $5 tables through the $25 tables had waitlists. I managed to hit four of them, but it was insane. As soon as the 60bil was dealt, all my tables emptied, and I got about ten notices that seats were available.

Wow.

Nothing like the gay waiter. Queen with a trey.
No, I missed it panicky...first time I ever had 5 tables at once going though...even showed a profit when I finished.
But no milestone love.
Good luck today all, I'll be gone most of the day taking wife to airport.

thanks for the post. I also tried to get in from 1/2 down to .01/.02 I could not get a table open from about 20 min prior to the hand hitting it was crazy as soon as a table opened it was filled then i had 20+ seat available msgs. LOL for the 70th Billion I will have to be on an hour before I guess.

Exactly how far away is this airport?

I'm actually up as well, courtesy of a guy who called me a donk after going all in with a pair of queens while I held a set of aces. He might be right. I played those aces horribly.

Oh, and don't worry. I have a feeling the milestones will keep coming.

Not terribly far, but she doesn't like to go in alone, and w/ the 18 month old... it may take a while.

The NLH tables had crazy waitlists at every level, but I was able to get seats on O8, Stud and FLH tables, so that's an alternative if you can't get on the NLH tables. Those tables are eligible for milestone hands too. It was a fixed limit table that got the 60 billionth hand.

I think we all played more cash tables last week, I always had at least 4 running and I usually run just 2 . Missed one milestone by 8 hands but on the plus side found 4 tabling easier than i thought and I have my BR up about $50 thru Monday and just a few vpps away from my first silverstar.

Yet another epic fail!!!

It never ceases to amaze me how many people have absolutely no clue. Every single milestone someone on the winning table folds their hand. Hello. Please if you ever find yourself in this situation people, DON'T FOLD!!! If it's NL ship your stack in and hope someone else folds.

I just remembered something funny. About six hosts came into the chat box, and maybe three from Team Pro, and I'm pretty sure one of the first things that I saw one of the purple commentators say was, "Remember, you can't win if you fold." That was followed by him/her prompting for questions before the hand began.

I know, they stop the hand before the deal, explain what's going on, take questions, the whole 9 yards, so it's not like someone just wandered into this by accident and doesn't realize.

It was probably a bot that folded: not programmed for these situations LOL

The one who folded was from Russia so maybe his English isn't good. Considering only one bet per round and therefore it was a pretty cheap hand to see to the end and that a pair of 3s won, it was an incredibly stupid fold though.

I was on for several hours and was getting really bored towards the end, just waiting for the final milestone and then quit each table. It wasn't too kind on my bank roll and I'm glad the promotion is over. Maybe now I can quit while I'm ahead instead of waiting for the next milestone hand and losing all my profits in the meantime.

Not only why did someone fold, but why didn't they cap every street either? What's the max rake on those tables, you want to generate as many VPP as possible, so usually a good idea for everyone to put as much money in the pot as they can.

Yeah it was an epic fail fold. Loved the team pro comment in chat before the railbirds ripped him, " Solid Fold " lol !

As for vpp, I believe pstars caps the rake at $3 per pot anyways but yea I'm jammin all the way... who knows maybe some other clueless player will fold
