Posted on 09 January 2012 by "T".

The PokerStars Pro Randy "nanonoko" Lew took a new world record during PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in Bahams. In a corner of the tournament room Lew sat and played not less than 40 cash game tables (PokerStars had to raise the table limit) on PokerStars, and in eight hours he managed to play 23,493 hands - about 2936 hands per hour - or just about 0.8 hands per second.

One of the conditions for the record to be approved by Guinness World Records was that Lew had to win something. The profit, however, just ended up being 7,65 dollars, less than one dollar per hour.

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. To make sure that this tournament would be interesting to take part in, PokerStars guaranteed a prize pool of $300,000 where the top 30,000 players would get a piece of the cake.

So how did it go?
Thanks to the low buy-in and the big guarantee this tournament offered not less than 149,196 players took part and a new world record was a fact as the old record had been beaten with almost 85,000 players. The winner of the tournament, Oskar69, received $50,000 in first place prize.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes before another world record attempt takes place and if Full Tilt or some other site will try to break PokerStars record.
