    SUWANEE, GA, March 12, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- PokerStars ran another milestone promotion this February, and this one was huge - 40 billion hands dealt! PokerStars could never have reached this incredible landmark without their players, many right here from Internet Texas Holdem, so F40 was their way of thanking the millions of you who helped them get there. Millions of dollars were up for grabs, including multi-table pokerstars tournaments with huge guarantees, milestone hand rewards in cash games leading up to the 40 billion Mega Milestone, Super Sns, First Depositor Freerolls and a special PokerStars VIP Club instant cash credit of $40.

As part of the F40 celebrations, PokerStars hosted a Sunday Million 4th Anniversary Special. This $4 Million Guarantee was HUGE. An incredible 36,169 players satellited in or plunked down their $200+$15 to participate in this ground-breaking tournament. The prizepool was a huge $7,233,800!

The top 5400 players finished in the money with over $3,000,000 sitting on the final table alone. After more than 13 hours at the tables, "RichieRichZH" from Switzerland sealed his place in the PokerStars history books, becoming, by far, the biggest winner of the Sunday Million tournament. For his $215 buy-in, he took home life-changing money of $1,141,510.31. Want to see a replay of the Final Table?
