"Dealing the 200 million hands is an amazing achievement, especially considering that it was just last March that we announced our 100 millionth," said Gian Perroni, poker room manager for Absolute Poker. "Absolute Poker has a loyal following and our rapidly growing community has helped us reach this milestone in an amazingly short time period. Anticipation is building as the clocks ticks down to the day and we predict record levels of players will compete for the prizes."

The following are the terms and conditions: This promotion is open to all real money players at Absolute Poker from now until the 200th million hand is dealt. Please note that in order to win, players must be playing at a real money ring game with blind levels of at least $1/$2 Limit or $1 NL or higher. The hand winner from the qualifying table is determined as the winner of that table's raked pot for that hand. There must be at least three people active or playing the hand for the hand to count. Participants who are eligible are those who are "active" in the hand. "Active" denotes participating as a raked player in that particular hand -- regardless of hand outcome. Participants who are simply sitting at a table or fold their cards before the flop will not qualify for a prize if the table is selected. Please note that if any of the prize level hands do not occur on a real money table, the next hand dealt that qualifies with at least $1/$2 Limit or $1 NL or higher and at least 3 people playing an active hand will be determined as the winning table. Absolute Poker does not tolerate fraudulent activity in any promotion. We reserve the final decision regarding the legitimacy of all hands that qualify. Winners will be announced on the website, via system messaging and in the lobby.
