There is a great deal going on at Full Tilt Poker these days, as the site is in the midst of its grand fifth birthday celebration. There are promotions to garner extra Fill Tilt Points, bounty bonuses, and extra referral incentives in whatever game or tournament lobby you choose on the site, all in celebration of five years of online poker. And it will all wrap up with a massive tournament on July 19th that will attempt to break a Guinness World Record!
The event is being called Full Tilt’s Record Breaker tournament and will take place at 3:05pm EST on Sunday, July 19th. Players can buy in for only $5 or 1,000 Full Tilt Points, and the prize pool is guaranteed to be at least $500,000. The guarantee set by Full Tilt Poker is $250,000, and the site has generously added $250,000 to the prize money as a “thank you” for playing.
The goal of the tournament, in addition to awarding players for their loyalty to the site, is to break the Guinness World Record, which has been held by PokerStars since December of 2008, when 35,000 players entered a tournament to take its place in the record books. But Full Tilt Poker looks to attract more than 35,000 in this Sunday’s tournament in order to set the new record and show the world a little of the popularity and excitement of online poker.
Full Tilt also promises that some of its members of Team Full Tilt will be signing up for the tournament as well, including Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer, and the latest member of the November Nine, Phil Ivey. Many more are expected to play as well, providing an opportunity to play for only $5 with some of the best and most respected poker pros in the world.
Players can find the Record Breaker tournament in the tournament lobby on Full Tilt Poker, amidst other events that will wrap up the fifth birthday celebration for the site, such as the Sunday Brawl with its special $500K guarantee. The Birthday Money Sunday will offer more than $2 million in prize pool monies for players, in addition to the $500K being put up for the Record Breaker event.
