PokerStars Goes for World Record

The number to beat is, of course, PokerStars’ own record breaking 225,000 entries, set last June. On February 23 at 1pm EST, over 230,000 players are expected to sit down and set a new record. Tickets cost $1, there’s no additional fee.

For players who can’t quite stretch their bankroll to a whole dollar, PokerStars is actually running satellites to the event.

As an extra promotion, and in homage to the Sochi Olympics, players who opt in to represent their country in the tournament will get a custom avatar of their national flag which will be displayed for the month of February.

The $25k guaranteed for first prize may prove a more effective recruiting tool, but the idea of emphasizing quite how many countries PokerStars players come from during such a huge tournament should add some fun to the tables.

Last year’s record breaking event suffered a momentary technical glitch coping with such huge numbers of players at one event – the problem was sorted within minutes, and the experience should mean this year’s tournament runs smoothly.
