      Every time these are on I put in some pretty decent length 9 table sessions and have never won one. :f_cry:

      I think the closest I came was 700 hands :D

      Not holding my breath for my luck to change but at the end of the day someone has to win!

      I am pretty sure that zoom hands are not included into that promotion anyway. So do not hope to hit one there :)

      I am a Zoom player though, but due to milestone hands I 15-table NL5, and haven't got one yet. I saw a popup couple times that milestone hit on NL5. :f_biggrin:

      my chat is not off, I just don't pay attention. and most likely if you "bluffed" me, then I didn't have a hand, I don't go to showdown with marginal hands playing 15-tables. :)

      I hit one last year, but only after I had given up all hope of hitting one, was 4tabling and had been there a while. A nice $500 boost for an NL10 player. The winner got $700 or so.

      I think the promotion is evil. You end up staying at tables far too long because the bonus amount is tied to your rake. Also every time it comes around a bunch of people leave your table. And I don't want to leave because I know that as soon as I do, the milestone will hit the table i just left (murphy's law)

      There should be a term called milestone equity (ME) since everyone is folding like mad near the milestone, you can get away with a lot of raises.. people want to fold and get to the new hand quickly. There are some that try to time the hand - timing out until they estimate they can hit it..

      The really good thing is if you start new tables within 150k hands of the milestone they fill up quickly with lottery players. (at least at micros)

      It seems to hit these consistently you need to 24 table or something?

      Heh yeah I am not all that sure. I play Nl5 on stars as well, but I kind of decided I won't chase it tbh. If it comes on nl5 I might open a few more tables, but that's it. I don't want to start paying for a chance to win the lotto.

      I am not going to update it any time soon. :) I don't see the point wasting my time with updates and stuff. I rather spend my time improving on my game. I will maybe start a blog once I hit NL50 or something.

      NL5 is good. After the promotion I will be taking shots to NL10, I've got enough roll to take shots. I actually start to enjoy playing NL5 at the moment on normal tables 15-tabling. :f_biggrin: After 15-tables I did open 4 zoom tables and it felt to be very slow. :rolleyes:

      I think I was on your right the other day. If you're playing 15 tables I doubt you remember me :D I don't think we had any huge hands or anything.
