Your tank is full of fuel. You’ve packed a cooler full of snacks. The in-dash navigation system is ready to roll. For you and the rest of the world, the next leg on the Road to 100 Billion starts today.
Sometime around 16:00 ET today, the milestone hands in the 80 Billionth hand celebration will kick off. The milestone hands begin at 79,700,000,000 and will hit every million hands until PokerStars deals its 80 billionth. When you get dealt into one of the big hands, you’ll earn big money. If you manage to hit the 80 billionth hand and win it, you’ll earn at least $ 20,000
As you might know by this point, your VIP Club status can earn you more money in the milestone hands celebration. The higher your status in the VIP Club, the bigger your payday. That’s because your prize is based on the number of VIP Points you have earned at the table in the hands leading up to the big hand.
Again, it all kicks off in about four hours, so buckle up and get ready to roll.
For all you need to know about this week’s celebration, check out the Road to 100 Billion information page.
Get ready, folks, because you don’t want to be left behind.
I’ve been invited to join the panel of judges for the European Poker Awards in Paris in January, held at the absolutely gorgeous Aviation Club de France. It’s a real honour and I was definitely surprised and happy to be asked. It feels like a big responsibility, so I’ll be considering the possible candidates carefully and trying to make the best possible decision. There are so many fantastic people up for awards that there won’t be any easy decisions!
I’ll be spending quite a bit of time in Paris in January as Party Poker are putting me into some of the Euro Finals of Poker events to help me hit the ground running playing a new year of poker tournaments. My new poker season all starts on the 5th of January though, with WPT Dublin and I’ve already had a lot of people arranging times to meet up and drink whiskey and guinness. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m going there to play a serious poker tournament. It’s an easy venue to lose track of that fact!
I hope you’re all having a fab Holiday season and that you’re 2011 ends with lots of my three favourite things: Food, laughter and poker!
