For Party Poker
players ('cue the usual groans' ) :-
They are doing large cash prizes for the 5 billionth hand.
My current rough estimate comes in at it being 5 days 9 hours away.
Worth trying to be playing at this point. I will try to keep this updated for those interested. (probably not that many as everyone seems to hate PP )
If you are on the table which gets dealt the 5 billionth hand, then prizes are :-
$50,000 shared between the table if you are on a $0.5/$1 or higher
$30,000 shared between the table if you are on any lower level or any tourney
$2500 shared between the table if you are playing a freeroll
Usual, extremely unlikey extras, like $1 million between table if the hand is a royal etc etc. (best forget about that part )
In short, If you play there anyway, then worth trying to be there then.
