PokerStars set a new world record

Not long ago, PokerStars announced that they will try to break the old record of the biggest online poker tournament. The old record was already held by themselves as they had 65,000 players in the same tournament last summer. Yesterday, it was time for a new world record attempt.

think that never full tilt beat pokerstar if both poker sites grow so fast as is there at this time now
now only pokerstar can do so big tourneys because they use the most progresing system and have the bigest servers

hope u understood that i want to say Worship

30 thousand prizes? Wow! That is an interesting number to try and make part of this atempt. Ok, so there will be more than 70,000 players running for it, but almost half of it will win something, which is not bad at all...

surely pokerstars is the biggest site in mtts, fulltilt didn't even give a shot to compete after failing miserably last time they tried to do so when pokerstars created their last record.
