PokerStars Battle With Full Tilt for World Records

Wed, Jul 22, 12:07pm by Kevin Pitstock

The battle for supremacy between the two largest online poker sites heated up over the weekend. Full Tilt had been planning to break PokerStars’ world record for the most amount of people in a poker tournament. They had been meticulously planning the details for a fair amount of time and had a limit of 35,000 placed on the $5 buy-in tournament.

Pokerstars weren’t to be outdone though, they returned fire by starting their own world record attempt just an hour before the Full Tilt tournament was due to begin. The “FIVE” promotion that Full Tilt was running was just a shadow of the PokerStars Guinness World Record.

It was only a $1 buy-in to play in the PokerStars tourney and they eventually set a cap of 65,000 entries. They also threw in an extra $65,000 of their own money to make it more attractive for their players. Full Tilt added $250,000 to their 250k prize pool to make a total of $500,000.

‘004 license’ won the PokerStars event and won 13k for his dollar after beating 64,999 players. ‘breo40’ won the Full Tilt event and won a massive $45,000 for his $5.

If last weekend is anything to go by, we can lick our lips in excitement as the heat intensifies. Full Tilt are pulling out everything they have in an attempt to wrestle back some of the market share. PokerStars have always had a solid reputation and have the money behind them to continually come up with the goods though.

One thing is for certain though – this is great news for online poker players. Look out for more great deals and promotions to come from the two biggest online poker sites.
