World Record Tournament

Hello Members,

Play for a share of $300,000 with a special World Record Tournament on June 16, including $25,000 for the winner and cash prizes for thousands of others. In addition to the huge prize pool, you also get to be part of poker history as we aim to set a new record for the biggest poker tournament of all time. The target is an incredible 225 ,000 players, and you can take part for just $1. 

PokerStars last World Record Tournament was in December 2011, where 200,000 players helped set a new record. Russia's 'sokoluk1991' won the tournament, which was certified by Guinness in a special ceremony at EPT Prague. Don't miss out on being part of our new World Record attempt!
