Another Billion Dealt

Written by Tom Somach in Poker News

A second online poker room is laying claim to having dealt one billion hands of poker.

Absolute Poker ( has announced that its one billionth poker hand was dealt over the weekend.

“This is a significant milestone,” said Absolute Poker senior vie-president David Clainer in a statement.

“Not only for our players, but for the entire online poker industry as a whole,” he added.

Last month, online poker room Bodog Poker ( announced that it had dealt its one billionth hand of poker.

To celebrate the occasion, the winner of the one billionth poker hand dealt at Absolute Poker won a $7,000 prize package that includes entries to three Absolute Poker tournaments: the $150,000 weekly guaranteed tournament, the $100,000 weekly pro bounty tournament and the $75,000 weekly guaranteed December tournament.

In addition, all the other participants in the one billionth hand received entries to Absolute Poker’s $150,000 weekly guaranteed tournament.

In announcing the one billionth hand, Absolute Poker made no mention of the current investigation into allegations that massive cheating has occurred at Absolute Poker by a current or former employee who was able to rig the software to see opponents’ hole cards.
