Tournaments and Satellites
PokerStars has the largest player base of all the online poker rooms and their tournaments are unmatched by any other room. Last December when they landed a world record for the largest poker tournament ever held, the tournament was capped at 35,000 entrants. I had registered a few days before the tournament and registration wound up closing about 2-3 hours before the touranment even started. This means that they probably could have had more then 45,000 players in the tournament if it was not capped. I have a feeling there is gonna be another world record attempt in the future on PokerStars.net, and I think it’s gonna have somewhere near 50K entrants.
PokerStars is also host to the internet’s largest weekly tournament; The Sunday Million. This event is usually a $215 buy-in that will have more than 5,000 players in it. There is also a weekly $5200 buy-in tournament… this is all in addition to some of the other great weekly guaranteed prize pools. No matter which stakes you decide to play at, you’ll have the opportunity to play in the largest internet poker tournaments anywhere.
