PokerStars has a way to perk up your game and chase away the blues when you keep getting dealt 7-2 — you read it right seven-deuce — and you can pick up some super cash rewards just for playing the worst hand in Texas Hold'em. Keep reading!
This PokerStars promotion runs until October 7th and is known as the 7-2 Boom! Play any real-money Hold’em ring game, including the faster-than-the-speed-of-light Zoom poker, win a hand with 7-2 suited and then take it proudly to PokerStars’ Boom Player to show it off! Then all you have to do is watch the cash roll into your PokerStars account!
Your cash prize is determined by the size of the big blind in the game you won the hand in. It's easy to find out how much you can expect to win when you score a hand with 7-2 suited — just multiply the big blind by the number of opponents at your table. For example, if you are playing $1/$2 at a nine-handed table, win the pot and Boom with your 7-2 hand. Your cash reward would be $2 (big blind) multiplied by 8 (number of opponents) for a $16 cash prize.
Don't slow down after winning the first one, you can claim up to three cash prizes every day!
There are terms and conditions that apply to the promotion and you need to read them before you start running over the tables with 7-2:
