PokerStars Breaks Another Record

PokerStars Breaks Another Record

Tuesday, 29 September 2009

Not too long after breaking their own record for the world’s largest ever poker tournament – with 65,000 entrants competing in a marathon event – PokerStars have outdone themselves again.

The world’s largest poker site secured that title by shattering their own record for the most players online at one time at an online poker room: 307,016 players shared over 40,000 tables on Sunday, September 6th.

This news comes hot on the heels of their largest ever World Championship of Online Poker tournament series, where literally tens of thousands of players participated to generate a total prize pool of over $50,000,000; obliterating the $40m guarantee. In 2002, the overall prize pool for the inaugural WCoOP was less than $1m and the Main Event (that this year guaranteed $10,000,000) paid out only $65,000!

To join the ever-expanding roster of players there and to compete in huge tournaments like the WCoOP Main Event, sign up to PokerStars.
