10th birthday deserves a lavish celebration
It seems like the world’s biggest poker site, Pokerstars, has no time for rest, trying to beat its own records for the largest number of player in action on the internet. The next one to run over is 149,196 players set in 2009.
The company hopes to break this one in December, and it will be another cause for celebration in addition to its 10th birthday, which it plans to mark (for the third time) by organizing the world's largest poker tournament on December 4 at 12:30 ET, where it will break the record by hosting more than 150,000 players.
The last such record outing was taken down by online player 'oskar69' from Garbsen, Germany, who on that occasion took home a prize of $50,000.
The tournament in question will be a $1 No Limit Hold'em tourney with a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000 and the first prize the same as two years ago - $50,000.
According to Team PokerStars pro Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier, who already holds a personal Guinness World Record for Most Online Poker Tables Played in One Hour, "It's exciting and unique to be part of a world record attempt. I'm looking forward to doing it again on December 4. It will be great to see so many players come together to make history once again."
PokerStars has already organized two promotions to honor its 10th Anniversary Celebration - the $10 Million Sunday Million tournament, which promises $2 million for the first placing player, as well as the 10th Anniversary Giveaway that awards 100 dream vacations to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas for free, along with 10,000 cash prizes.
