  • Close, But no Cigar

    I'm done with the Milestone promotion. Thouroughly discusted with myself....again. I'm convinced the true EV is not in the money PokerStars is giving away. The EV is for the ring game sharks who get to crack the fish like me who have no business playing ring games.

    Anyway, I'm not going to set the bar very high here right out of the shoot, but I will get the ball rolling.

    Who in the forum will get the closeset to being dealt in one of the Milestone hands:

    PokerStars Game #59883001345: Hold'em No Limit ($0.25/$0.50 USD) - 2011/03/27 8:52:49 CT [2011/03/27 9:52:49 ET]
    Table 'Cline IV' 9-max Seat #3 is the button
    Seat 1: RightBetFred ($27.10 in chips)
    Seat 2: distrofik ($30.20 in chips)
    Seat 3: Mmmm Fish ($16.05 in chips)

    Current leader is Mmmm Fish at 1345 hands from the money.

    I missed one by about 500.

    Haven't hit one, but at least I can say I've gotten alot of VPP's and am +$$$ at them.

        negative EV for me too

        I've been grinding the .02/.05 for two nights now and haven't hit yet......donated $4 so far over the two nights. I'm definately not a cash game player! Still going to try again today as if you hit one, it will make up for it. Those tables are tough. Was positive $$ the first night, but lost $4 last night. I'm playing super tight but had a problem twice laying down big hands when I knew I should which lost $2 each.....oh, well, back to the drawing board.

          I win fish. Took a $400+ nose bleed yesterday chasing the pipe dream. 2 stellar rewards later, and 1500 FPP's. Still down a little and don't know how close. I just didn't care if I missed. My poor money. LOL -GL to all someone hit one. Please.

                with close to 50,000 tables, the chances anyone has to get dealt into a milestone hand are pretty astronomically against you.

                  The best way to get an approximation of the odds is to pull up your hand history and use the average of the differences between the hands. Number will be lower for the six-max tables than it is for the nine-player tables. Number is usually lower for the mico stakes than the higher stakes.

                  But you are right, odds are usually in the tens of thousands to 1. Still, there is a much better chance that a PSO player is going to show up in a Milestone hand than at the final table of the today's Sunday Storm.
