Christopher Small, a 24-year-old NZ student had been a regular at PokerStars for the past three years making some pocket money and dreaming of incredible winnings. His family was strongly displeased with their son’s passion and considered him to have a gambling dependency. Chris persisted in his desire to become rich through online poker and continued playing.
About 1 am in late July, 2011 the guy’s prayers were heard when Chris was playing $0.10/$0.25 six-max No Limit Hold’em on incredible 24 tables simultaneously with five other people. The lucky fellow had been dealt into the site’s 65-billionth hand and suddenly became $68 420 richer.
Excited Chris happened to hit a big jackpot for his winning hand because PokerStars rewards every 5 billionth hand played on the site. The following prize target is 70 billion hand and the grandest even of all will be PokerStars’ Mega Milestone 100 billionth hand. Elated NZ student does not share his ideas if he is going to try and hit another jackpot!
