      Pre-flop: ($0.40, 9 players) Hero is BTN :6s: A:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.25, MP1 calls $0.25, 1 fold, MP3 calls $0.25, 1 fold, Hero raises to $4.20, 2 folds, UTG+1 folds, MP1 calls $3.95, MP3 folds

      River: :4h: ($9.30, 2 players)

      Final Pot: $9.30
      MP1 shows: :5h: :5d:
      Hero shows: :6s: A:

      MP1 wins $8.85 ( won +$4.65 )
      UTG+1 lost -$0.25
      MP3 lost -$0.25
      Hero lost -$4.20


      Unfortunately, i was the donk who tried to steal all the dead money on the button. :)

      And the best part is, i think the guy who hit the quad 5s doesn't even know about the promotion. You need to dig out the hand history and ask everest for the points manually.

      Yes, there has to be a showdown...

      You must be holding at least one 5 in the hole when you hit Quad 5s. Only raked, Ring games real money Hold’em hands ending in a showdown qualify you for our Quad 5s Summit Bonus.

      That's the reason, why I was checking every street in this hand... :D I hope it qualifies for the promotion...

      I think in last hand there was no rake taken or was it?

      225$, one fish had quad 5's 2 times in 20k hands. I found out about it when he slowplayed set 5's againts me and lost because of that :D .If he is on NL10 then it wouldnt be stupid from him to slowpay it, but on NL100 it is :D

      ps. When you recive 55k SP, does it count for your VIP level?

      It should count, but I can't be sure now... They have already credited me the 55k points, but since the maintenance this morning I can't reach the VIP Summit Club page to check my future level... In the beginning of this promotion, there was also this sentence, but they have removed it for some reason...

      If you are a member of the VIP Summit Club, our Quad 5s Summit Bonus qualifies you for the highest tier within the club—along with all the rewards we reserve only for our most elite players.

      It would be great for them if it counts because it is a great market move to keep players (grinders) for atleast 3 months at their site :D .Nobody will leave their site if he has top vip level at them :D

      I realized that I won that promotion thingie only day after I got it. I was sitting in the shitter actually. Great place for great thoughts.
      By the way, I got that same day I registered to everest, ~5k hands later. Site sucks, but I guess I'll stick to it now :rolleyes:


      UPDATE:
      these points DOES NOT count towards vip level. So im out of there as soon as i clear the deposit bonus.

      Is there such bonus for a straight flush ? I flopped one:

      Now I can confirm myself that you can get bonus as much times as you get quads, because I was just credited my secong 55 555points bonus. that's great for NL10 player. if frequency keeps up i'll should get it once more till the promotion ends.
