World Record Tournament

On Sunday Pokerstars held the largest tournament ever. You can see the official  confirmation from Guinness in the photo being presented to Fatima Moreira de Melo.

It was a $1 buy-in and the field reached the maximum number a few hours before the start.

200,000 people played for a first prize of $50,000. This surpassed the previous record of 149,196 players 2 years ago.

I wonder how many would have registered if there was no capped limit. This means for sure that this record will be beaten again in the future.

The were more than 400k players online at one time when I checked.

The eventual winner was Russian player sokoluk1991 who took down just over $40,000 after the last 3 players made a deal leaving $5k for the eventual winner
