New world record for Pokerstars tournament


With an accesible buy-in of $1, PokerStars not only managed to reach the aimed market, but also accomplished to brake the previous record for the largest poker tournament ever.

The event captured 225,000 players who had many reasons to find the event appealing: $300k in prize money, 20% of the seats given away via freerolls and all players were promised an overlay.

Russian player “SlavaPro” who lasted longest in the tournament, won the $25,000 first prize.
