PokerStars Misses Out on MTT Record

PokerStars Misses Out on MTT Record

Monday, 24 February 2014

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.

1st. 'Dal2009' - $25,000
