    Default PokerStars Weekly News Update 8/20/2012

    1. PokerStars dealt out their 85 Billionth hand today, doing so at a $.02/.$05 NL Hold'em table. Players seated at the table had at most $12.43 in front of them to start the hand, but by the end they were all much richer. One player, "som6873" turned $7 into $26,000 in the blink of an eye, winning a 6-way all-in with Kc4c. He flopped top pair and it held against a turned flush draw for the win! All the players at the table took home at least $12,040 in what was one of the biggest promotional payouts in PokerStars history!

    2. Players can begin earning 2012 WCOOP tickets for as little as $.55! Daily low-stakes events are running under the Tourney->Regional tab with guaranteed seats for $109, $215, $320, and $530 WCOOP events. Just play between now and September 2nd and you could earn your seat in most WCOOP tournaments for pennies on the dollar.

    This promotion is restricted to players from the following countries: Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Netherlands, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Albania and Bosnia.

    3. Asian PokerStars players can qualify for a seat to the Macau Poker Cup Championship Main Event running Sept 12-16. The package is worth $3,338 and satellites are starting as low as $1.10 or 20 FPPs. Just head to the Events tab and find the Macau section to take a shot at the Main Event satellites.

    4. Asian players can also get a $5.50 tournament ticket by depositing $10 or more on Stars using the code BIG550. The ticket is to the Big $5.50 event, a $20,000 guaranteed tournament.

    For 3 and 4, do you have to be of Asian heritage or located in the continent of Asia?
