PokerStars Giving Away Some Stuff For Whatever Hand it is Now
PokerStars is preparing to pass another major hand milestone this month, making online poker history in the process.
But something about the room’s attitude is making players suspect that PokerStars’ heart just isn’t in it this time around.
“Yeah, so, we’re all very excited about dealing our … umm … look, hell if I know how many hands we’ve dealt,” said Jim Neisson, head of PokerStars promotions during a phone interview.
“It’s gotta be a lot by now.”
PokerStars is approaching their 100 billionth hand dealt.
The official PokerStars press release for the 100 Billion Hands Celebration took a similarly lax tone.
“Players will probably,” the press release read, “really like these bonuses and promotions celebrating [INSERT HAND MILESTONE HERE]. Or not. Whatever. We’ll keep dealing hands either way.”
When told that the 100 billion hands dealt by PokerStars likely exceeded the total number of hands of every card game played by everyone in all of history, Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu was not impressed.
“All of history,” Negreanu said. “Huh. Well, I don’t know if you knew this, but Robocop is on TBS this Friday, so that’s also pretty great.”
