The world’s largest online poker site is once again aiming to set a new official world record. PokerStars has already set the record twice for the ‘Largest Online Poker Tournament’ – first in December last year when 35,000 players took to the tables and yet again in July when 65,000 players took part.
Sanctioned by the Guinness Book of World Records, PokerStars next attempt takes place on Monday December 28th at 6:45am AEDST. The No-Limit Hold’em tournament will have a buy-in of just $1 and PokerStars is guaranteeing a first prize of $50,000 and a total prize pool of $300,000. Indications are that the top 30,000 players will receive prize money, so you can do the math and figure out how many players you are going to have to overcome to win this one!
Bryan Slick, PokerStars’ Tournaments Team Leader said, “Players really enjoy these events, and so do we. There is a real thrill when the tournament begins and everyone realizes just how many people are taking part from all over the world.”
Registration is open now under ‘Tourney’ > ‘Special’ of the PokerStars client, but be warned, there is no late registration for this event so players must buy-in before kick off time.
It’s going to be a big Monday at PokerStars for Australians braving the early Christmas morning. PokerStars are hosting a mega-satellite to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) with a huge 50 Main Event packages being given away. The mega-satellite kicks off at 10:00am AEDST with each package worth $15,130 including entry into the Main Event, accommodation and $1,000 in cash. You can buy-in directly to the mega-satellite for $700 or qualify through one of the many sub-satellites run every day from as little as $1.
Additionally this Monday, PokerStars will be hosting their monthly Turbo Takedown with a $1,000,000 prize pool up for grabs for just 3,000 FPPs. There’s also added bonuses, pro player bounties and a brand new car to be won! The top 5,000 players will be paid and all the action kicks off on Monday December 28th at 7:30am AEDST.
