Despite the site's best efforts, PokerStars couldn't quite break its own world record on Sunday.
Although the online giant managed to squeeze an impressive 211,619 players into a single online MTT, that total wasn't enough to break the current record which stands at 225,000. Having put up a $300,000 guarantee and enough seats for 230,000 players, the mega tournament eventually fell just short of the record but after just four hours Germany's 'Dal2009' managed to walk away with $25,000. After spending just $1 to be a part of history, the online grinder found himself at the head of a mammoth pack late into the night. Soon after taking the lead in the final stages he was able to overcome Denmark's 'behnel' to clinch the title and the five-figure payout whilst his opponent scooped $15,000 for his efforts. PokerStars World Record Attempt MTT Final Result:1st. 'Dal2009' - $25,0002nd. 'behnel' - $15,0003rd. 'JustAcaT699' - $10,0004th. 'wee1188' - $7,5005th. '(J0ker)161' - $5,0006th. 'modilgiani' - $3,5007th. 'linkirk' - $2,5008th. 'jbsbuchecha' - $2,0009th. 'crazycanuckle' - $1,500
