PokerStars Passes 40 Billionth Hand Mark
February 19, 2022

Another major milestone was surpassed on PokerStars today, as after much build up, the site officially dealt their 40,000,000,000th hand of poker.

According to the official PokerStars blog, there were over 40,000 tables in play as the 40 billionth hand approached, but only one of them got to play it, "naef III"- a $2/$4 6-max No-Limit Hold 'em table. 

At that table, the hand was won by online player "Senecady," who along with the $350 for winning the pot, scored $24,000 extra for taking it down- $800 for each VPP they had earned over the last 40 hands.

The payouts for the players involved in the official PokerStars 40th billionth hand were as follows:

jeckjeck, Sweden, $12,400.80

Joe Hahn, Holland, $1,500

Senecady, Sweden, $24,000

thecooler992, US, $15,590.20
