Vote for the Greatest Poker Hand


PokerStars are looking for the Greatest Poker Hand in their history. You can vote now, and earn prizes when the winner is announced! Here's how the voting works:

Go to the PokerStars YouTube page, watch the videos and vote for your favourite (the videos are best viewed on your desktop/laptop computer, but a mobile version is also available). Voting earns your chosen video a point. Share it with your friends and the video will score another three points. You have until June 10 to make your selection.

The three videos with the most points when voting closes on June 10 will be handed over to a judging panel made up of Team PokerStars Pros Daniel Negreanu, Liv Boeree and Lex Veldhuis, who will decide which of the hands you can win with by playing Zoom!


Win with ZOOM and BOOM!

Once the special hand has been selected, simply play any real money No Limit Hold'em Zoom game at any stake between June 24-30. If you are dealt the same hand (including suit) and manage to win with it post-flop, use the BOOM! Hand Replayer to share the hand with the world. You will be credited with a cash reward worth 100 big blinds at the stake level you were playing at, up to a maximum of $100!

Please Note: The cash will be credited to your account within 48 hours, once we have verified that you have shared the hand via BOOM!, and after other relevant checks. Players are only eligible to claim a prize once per day during the promotion period. If you win with the hand more than once in the same day, you will be credited with the highest prize amount won.

Contact support@pokerstars.com if you have any questions about Zoom & BOOM! Greatest Poker Hand or any other 100 Billion Hands Celebration promotion - where a total of $5,000,000 will be awarded across all events.



Best of Luck!

I'm pretty sure Ike Haxton's all in shove with 32 will win the vote, but I'm even more sure that I won't be winning a hand with that in the next 3000 years or so.


Bracelet Winner

This could be fun, assuming Ike wins, now we know there's a panel judging the top three it seems more likely, then looks like I will be having some fun with Yet another cool 100 Billion promo

Daniel's hand is currently leading the voting, but PSO members can fix that, surely?

From the blog:
"A judging panel will choose which of the top three voted hands should be chosen for the Zoom & Boom promotion which could win you up to $100 each time you win a pot with that hand and share it with the world."

Would be mean of them to pick Mercier's

very good, it's not over yet i see....
The least best option would be 9s5h indeed and will probably be the one

I vote for 9Tdd if i have a vote

They announced the hand over at Pokerstars Blog - it's (or )

Zoom and BOOM!: Win with kings, get paid extra


It's so easy to remember black kings, I won't even need to keep a picture of them in the corner of the screen this time



PS Sigh ... my 'pokercation' (that's a vacation from poker) lasted all of 2 days - just when I think there's going to be enough of a lull in stuff going on here, something pops up that's just too tempting to resist ... so weak ......

The hand of the day is so different from the ones last time, does it maybe raise different play considerations?

Like last time the hands were so bad, everybody was just limping and calling, and not making raises to try and get to showdown for as cheap as possible. But KK's so strong - it'd be ideal to be able to make it to showdown and win 100bbs from the hand, and 100bbs from the promotion. But what if we have to choose one or the other?

Can't think of a specific scenario off the top of my head tho ... ahhh, I don't know - should be fun either way

You have to win with black kings post flop so I would imagine the 'correct' play is to try and get HU to the flop. I imagine smaller 3bets to price villains into call and put off the rest for coming along multiway.
Postflop I imagine it will be pretty straightforward with large bets, no way you want to be pricing in villain there.
Looking forward to a few days of this, bet I never see them!
