PokerStars is celebrating their 10 year anniversary, and they are doing it in style! Breaking records, having a great tournament, giving away amazing cash and vacation prizes, PokerStars is going all out! As the saying goes, “Go big or go home!” and by the looks of it, PokerStars is definitely going big!
PokerStars is the world’s largest online poker community, so if any poker site can do it, they can. Infact, PokerStars HAS done it. Back in 2009, PokerStars hosted the same event, and a record breaking 149,196 players turned out to join the tournament, which featured a $1 buy in. The winner of that tournament was a player from Garbsen, Germany and they won $50,000.
The next attempt to break their own record will be on December 4th, and the tournament will kick off at 12:30 Eastern Time. The goal for this even is to have more than 150,000 players join the tournament, which will be a $1 No Limit Hold’em. The prize pool is $250,000, and first place gets a substantial chunk of that, a $50,000 chunk to be exact!
With a buy in of just $1, how could you not want to join in on the fun!? You would also be helping PokerStars beat their record as well.
