I see people with pocket pairs but I'm not sure how it works.. Do freerolls count for this? do MTT count for this as well or does it have be a cashgame like 1Cent/2Cents?

No, free rolls do not count.

The hand totals are accumulated through MTT buy-ins or cash at any level.

I read the linked info. It makes it sound like freerolls do not count. However, I have a badge available for 250K hands, and there is NO WAY this is representative of the number of cash game and buy-in hands that I have played on pokerstars. I have probably played over 250K freeroll hands, and less than 20K non freeroll hands.

Perhaps we could follow up to clarify the matter?

Not directly relevant but I have stats that show in the various games which I play at GG (they have a basic HUD system), and not a one them matches the actual stats I keep, or amusingly the ones they have in my balance history.

Go for it. I would rather stick pins in my eyes than contact Customer Service.

Okay Normino and mtl mile end...

I have emailed PokerStars to clarify if hands played in private free rolls such as Casino Org's and Cards Chat's count as real money hands...we shall see (but don't sit there holding your breath!)
