Record Breaking Tournament at PokerStars.com

PokerStars are constantly looking for new ways to establish themselves as the best poker tournament site on the internet. They have now decided to make an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of Records with their $500 000 guaranteed tournament that can cater for 35 000 players. The buy in for this tournament is only $10+1 so even if this tournament should fill up there will be a $150 000 overlay[...]   Read more » Record Breaking Tournament at PokerStars.com

8,5 hours with 25.000 players? Then we should expect a tourney with similar conditions and 35.000 players to last around 10 hours at least. Shock

Ya, it might take 10-12 hours. I don't know why they have a few more blind levels in there than 200k tournament.

Some month ago I was playing a a Freeroll on Party with 6200 players and was winning. 14,50$ LoL

There must be a topic and some screenshots in this forum from me Big Smile

I was playing about 6 hours....

With so many Players on Stars they must play 2-3 days...

Nothing for me...

Currently have 23k enrolled, looks like they should hit the 35k, It wont take days just 10hrs.......so put the kettle comp, cook ya tea the night befor and your all set, lap top users get the benafit of going the toilet whilst not missing a hand :}

i agree with bigfoot Tongue i got a laptop and cant wait for this game, little chance of winning but at the end of the day it all boils down to luck on the day....

it would be sweet even placing a tournament of this size.. ya think the pot wuld be bigger tho maybe because its pokerstars and there getting all the advertisement and guinness book of records over it they would sponsor a % more than the money we pay in...

The way i cost 10+1 every 1 should go to pot not to them.... or at least every .50.... build the pot up if they hit over the 500k cause i think the way its goin they will get lot more than 35k ppl

Well, just been playing the 10k sngs at PS, and its full of donks, so have withdrawn from the 35k, its a game of roulette, you can handle a few donks, but its unreal, id say about 70% are donks.(all in with AA any pos you will get atleast 2 callers, normally 4-5)
Not just me but the outher good players are getting called and raised etc with absolute crap, some hit some miss but never fold, but it aint poker at all, not going to sit for 5-6etc hours to get done by a donk.
And the real shame is that some of them think they are playing a good game,
The 35k is going to be a real joke, im out..

Yep Agree , but the donkfactor has gone up so much they now belive they are playing well, i was down to around 2k players and atleast half of them donked the way, and stilll donking.
I started to think i was lucky when my FH(js/10s) held against 2 6 (true story)

I think the best way to play against donks is see flop cheaply and get the money when you're good.

35k players already, I wasn't sure if I wanted to play it but I guess I have no choice now lol. I will get reload bonus though.
