Absolute Poker deals out billionth hand

6 December 2007

On Friday, Nov. 30 at 19:41 ET, the 1,000,000,000th hand 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 $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.

"It's been an unbelievable journey to the one-billionth hand at our tournament tables," said 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."

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.

The milestone was hit just five days after another popular poker site, Bodog, reached the same plateau. It was also just seven weeks ago that Absolute Poker was rocked with a cheating scandal caused by a security breach.
