      Congrats! :D

      btw: I watched 1 table on Friday: it was some micro or low NL FR, some kind of moderator announced "the next hand is milestone. The winner wins cash bonus!" or something similar. UTG and UTG+1 went all-in, the rest folded!!! It took me few mins to stop laughing...

      Lol noobs. Hey Opal, (thanks for joining my group btw, and feel free to invite your friends too) do you think there is some strategy to getting the milestone hand or is it really just like winning the lottery. When i won mine, it was sheer luck, i was sitting playing, and noticed a dick load of observer chat, then i looked at the hand# and it was 2884000000000 or something and then i realised what was happening. Since then i've been greedy and wanted to win another one:P and have been joining 24 tables (the max) hoping to get lucky again. Is there a strategy to joining these tables, ie (joining shorthanded ones, full ring, empty tables full tables) or is it really just blind luck?

      HU tables were closed until the Monday because of this promotion.. wtf?! :rolleyes:

      Joronamo: there's no strategy to win $$$ this way - it's the same like buying lottery ticket and then dreaming :P

      GO ALL IN LOL :D You get much more money anyway but by winning you get at least 100% more and you lose far less by going all in(only if you and someone else would be sth. like 600BB+ deep would be questionable going all in).
