Last week we wrote that Full Tilt poker were really tired of always being in the shade of "big brother" PokerStars and their huge success. Now they wanted to break PokerStars biggest online tournament record by offering a tournament with low buy-in and huge overlay. This is how the Guinness world record attempt went for Full Tilt...

Full Tilt tournamen is deffenatly better. They had $5 buy-in and Stars - $1. At stars you could also getto the tourney through freerolls. So Full Till should have won. Now they might make 100,000 entries tournament

Perhaps they can start thinking in making a different record attempt: -the biggest online tourney with biggest buy-in (making business with sites like BRM so this can offer a gift to the players who register the tourney through them; for example, one would make a $100 deposit just to register the $100 tourney, the poker site double the amount of the deposit, and a site like BRM would guarantee $50 back if he couldnt get to prize places).

Full tilt tried to beat pokerstars, but got themselves beaten, lol They'll never match pokerstars whatever they do, pokerstars has the bigger player base and fulltilt's software is having a lot of problems lately.
Correction: FullTilt offered freeroll satellite seats into the Record Breaker. 20,000 players played for 4000 free seats. There were also FTP and low buy-in satellites...so "as little as $5 buy-in" is incorrect.

Posted by vamosuy: Pokerstars is the best site of poker ever. Fulltilt poker doesnt exist.
WHY do youthink it is so ? Just because you have 14,35 $ on stars and 0 on fulltilt doesnt make stars a better place to play on . I think stars has way better MTTs but fulltilt have more fish at the LOWER stakes cg ... playing 1/2 blinds on fulltilt is just idiotism.

Full tilt and pokerstars seems like two childs fighting for a toy! Who cares who has the biggest online poker tournament! What players want is good tournaments with with good structures. I wouldnt like to play a tournamnent with 50000 players i would fell asleep!

wtf? played some tourneys with ~3000 entrants and it was very hard to play that long time ( and whats the earnings for playing 3hrs a far cry from the final table ... i doubled my buyin wow...) i often play the 1$ 1000$-gtd doublestack on stars and there are a lot of luckboxes you cant count... how would it be on that big tourney? i think its interesting but what if you get outdonked after 3-4hrs for nothing ?
