PokerStars Put Their Name Out There by Breaking a Guinness World Record


PokerStars is the world’s largest and most popular poker website. The record was shattered to pieces when over 200,000 people logged onto the system to pay $1 to compete in their very own PokerStars No Limit Hold ’em tournament. This set the record in the book for the largest number of players to compete in a single online poker tournament. Although more than 200,000 people wanted to join, the tournament was capped to stop players from entering at 200,000 players. There were some disappointed people.

Online poker has so many players because it gives them a chance to compete with stars in the same tournaments. This means they get to take a shot against some of the best poker players in the world. There was one crowded celebration for this ocassion at the Hilton Prague. This is where the latest poker tour was held. The adjudicator was present during this celebration to justify and establish that PokerStars really did break the world record.

Just over seven hours of play time, sokoluk1991 walked away as the tournament champion. The players all got together, and showed just how diverse online poker really is. Now remember that this was just a dollar to buy in. Th radio show continued to play their live broadcast throughout the tournament to keep people updated. They also gave away over 100 prizes to listeners from all over the world.

This is just the first launch of a bunch of great tournaments that are still to come from PokerStars.
