PokerStars Shoots for Another Guinness World Record on December 27th

Share this
Did you know that the most popular poker room on the planet is a record holder in the Guinness Book of World Records? Well they are, and it all started a year ago in December of 2008 when PokerStars set out to secure their spot in the Guinness World Record Book. They reached their goal when 35,000 poker players entered a special tournament which set the record for the most playing online poker at the same time at the same poker room.

Then in July of this year, they beat their own record when they had 65,000 players participate in another record breaking event during their ‘World Record Week’ promotion. And now, they are out to top their own record yet again.

This Sunday, December 27th at 14:45 EST PokerStars will host another Guinness World Record tournament which will be even bigger and with a more massive prize pool than before! What is sure to be the biggest online poker tournament in history will have a whopping $300,000 Guaranteed Prize pool, which is three times the size of the $100k prize pool awarded in the July 2008 event! And you can win some of that $300k for just one dollar!

And if you can’t afford the $1 buy-in, PokerStars is hosting a wide range of satellite qualifiers with buy-ins as low as ten cents ($0.10) or only five Frequent Player Points (FPPs)! You can easily find all of the satellite qualifiers that are running now until Sunday afternoon by going to the PokerStars lobby, looking in the ‘Tourney’ and ‘Special’ tabs. There you can choose your satellite or just register for the ‘World Record’ event shown in pink text (Tournament ID# 234567890) by paying the buy-in of only $1.00! But you better register right now, because seats are sure to fill up fast in this record setting event and there will be no late registration allowed!

In July when the last Guinness event took place, the tournament was a sell out the day before the tournament was even due to start, leaving many players on the rail to just watch the fun. And with the massive $300k guaranteed prize pool and low buy-in, this event World Record breaking tournament will sell out even quicker than it did last time! So if you don’t want to be a railbird in this amazing event - register now!

Be a part of the biggest online tournament in history and to verify you were there, all players who participate in the event will receive a special certificate confirming they are part of the world record! But the biggest reason you want to secure your seat is to play for the $50,000 Guaranteed first place prize! That is another record breaker right there, $50k in cash for the first place winner with an investment of only ONE dollar or less!

Everyone may care about getting in the Guinness Book, but they will want to try to win a piece of the $300,000 prize pool and aim for the top by taking home $50k for first place! Mark your calendar now and be there on PokerStars this Sunday – where every player can be a poker star in The Guinness World Record tournament!
