PokerStars Guinness World Record Poker Tournament

Back in 2009 PokerStars set the record for the most amount of players registered in a single online poker tournament with 149,196 registering for the event. However back then the poker scene was a bit different with the top two online poker rooms PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker using aggressive marketing strategies to keep ahead of the competition.

Earlier in 2009 Full Tilt Poker attempted to beat the PokerStars Guinness World Record on 19th July 2009 with their Record Breaker Tournament which we were promoting back then. In defense of their record PokerStars hosted a tournament on the same day with 65,000 players taking part and set a new record. On the 27th December 2009 PokerStars broke their record again hosting an online poker tournament with 149,196 players registered which still stands today.
