Super Poker Sunday: Guinness World Record set by PokerStars

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

PokerStars attempted to break its own Guinness World Record by hosting the biggest ever online poker tournament in history and it happened when 225,000 players bought into the $1 tournament on Sunday. The players built the prize pool to $225,000 with $1 buy-ins and PokerStars contributed the remaining $75,000 to meet the $300,000 guarantee. Mr.SlavaPro from Russia walked away with $25,000 from a $1 investment.

PokerStars ran the usual Sunday Majors schedule while holding the biggest online poker tournament ever. Some of the notables who collected big scores were Ole “wizowizo” Schemion, Andrew "Drewfus81" StJean, Alex "dynoalot" Difelice, and Bradley "BaZa88" Bower.
