Absolute Poker celebrates billionth hand

7 December 2007

(PRESS RELEASE) -- There aren't enough candles in the world or a cake big enough to hold them for celebrating Absolute Poker's latest milestone. But that didn't stop the popular online poker site from marking its one-billionth tournament hand in style.

"It's been an unbelievable journey to the one-billionth hand at our tournament tables," stated David Clainer, Senior Vice President for Absolute Poker. "Along the way we've welcomed new players with incredible promotions, new features and exciting games. The freebees continue with our one-billionth poker hand promo."

On Friday, November 30th at 19:41 ET, the 1,000,000,000th hand - yes one billionth - dropped at Absolute Poker's Texas Hold'em tournament tables.

A player with the moniker WIN1313 won the billionth poker hand, securing a prize package that includes entries to the online poker site's signature $150,000 Weekly Guaranteed Tournament, $100,000 Weekly Pro Bounty, and $75,000 Weekly Guaranteed Tournament for the month of December. The value of the prize package is $6,968.

Absolute Poker also handed out entries to the $150,000 Weekly Guaranteed Tournament for the month of December - a $2,120 value - to all other participants in the billionth hand.
