Make poker history and play for a share of $300,000!

While the world’s athletes push for glory on TV, you can help set a new World Record by playing what’s set to be the biggest poker tournament of all time!

PokerStars last record-breaking tournament was in June 2013, with 225,000 players and victory for Russia’s ‘Mr.SlavaPro’. Now you can help break that record, with a target of 230,000 players and $25,000 guaranteed for the winner!

To find the tournament and register, open the PokerStars lobby and click ‘Tourney’ > ‘Special’, or search for ‘Record’ using the Tourney Filter.

Get your own Guinness World Record certificate

When the new World Record is set, and if you took part, you might want to pick up your own official personalised certificate to show that you are a record breaker! The certificate is produced independently by Guinness World Records, the universally recognised authority on record-breaking achievements.

Guinness World Records charges £20, plus postage and packaging (or local currency equivalent) to produce a personalized certificate. Further details will be made available on the PokerStars Blog after the official world record is confirmed and officially certified.

Please Note: The tournament will be capped at 230,000 players, so be sure to secure your place early. Unused tickets or tickets claimed after the tournament has reached the cap will be forfeited. There will be no late registration.
