WRONG, it doesn't reset
It's always your LAST 50 hands at the moment of the milestone hand at that table
(which is about the last 45 minutes you've played)

Take the time to read the rules

That means he had accumulated about 1.76 VPP's during the last 50 hands, and about another .30 for the last hand
If he hadn't played a hand before that one, he would of won $76 or $38 if he hadn't won that hand.
So ALWAYS shove

NICE

Just in case you don't get dealt a monster like 8-2 - worse hands win too...

once again 2 folders i really dont understand from what ive gleamed around the forum vpp from the milestone hand counts so to move all in would at least get you your money back in the form of bonus plus you have the potential to win the hand please correct me if im wrong

Hi milehigh0874. The explanation of how the prize money is calculated is here. The VPPs earned in the milestone hand do count and also the VPPs in the previous 49 hands at that table. To maximize the benifits you must reach showdown because anyone who wins any portion of the hand will have their winnings doubled. Never fold. Being short stacked or just joining a table will result in a much reduced prize.

Since there are long odds against you being dealt a milestone hand, you should not play higher stakes or more tables than you are comfortable feeling you can handle profitably.

Good luck
Doug

Observed someone winning $700+ last night. Would love to be dealt into one of these hands.
