Russian Winner of Record Breaking Pokerstars MTT

on 2013-06-20, 11:26
MR.SLAVAPRO ENTERS THE RECORD BOOKS, WINS 225,000 PLAYER TOURNAMENT

Imagine if you will the 90,000 capacity Wembley stadium full to bursting two and half times over, now imagine that every single soul was there to play poker. Got it? Good. Because that’s exactly what happened, in a virtual sense of course, when PokerStars, as part of their 100 billionth hand promotion, set out to beat the world record for the largest poker tournament ever. The record, held by PokerStars of course, was 200,000 set 18 months ago when the poker behemoth celebrated its 10th Anniversary, they decided to outdo themselves and raise the bar to 225,000 and they smashed it.

Entry was just $1 and with a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000 meaning at least a $75,000 overlay players bought or satellited their way into the tournament in their droves. Come the start it was a sell out and, with a turbo structure, just over four hours later it was done and dusted with Mr.SlavaPro from Russia the winner and $25,000 richer. In all 60,000 players made the money with the final 10 all guaranteed a four figure payday.

The 100 billionth hand celebrations continue as this week is Golden Sit and Go week, check out http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/promotions/100-billion-celebration/golden/ for full details.

I checked the winner on Sharkscope; he had only ever played freerolls and penny tournaments. After his big win he tried a massive shot at a $15 sit and go, coming 5th of 6.
