On December 27th 2009, you will have the opportunity to take part in the largest online tournament ever. Poker Stars is looking to end 2009 with a bang by eclipsing the 65,000 player Guinness World Record that was set in July 2009, previously by Poker Stars.
All of the details for the tournament are as followed:
Date: Sunday, December 27th 2009 at 14:45 ET
Buy–In: $1 (That’s right! One measly dollar)
Prize Pool: Guaranteed $300,000
Registration: Open now until the tournament start.
Satellites: Although the buy-in is low and at a minimum, you can still earn your entry free!
To find the tournament, go to the Poker Stars lobby, select “Tourney” then “ALL” or “Special.” You can also find the tournament using the Poker Stars search feature by typing in “record.”
Although this tournament is cheap and there will be plenty of people who aren’t premier players, you still need to play solid and methodically to cash. Be sure to stay out of sticky positions with middle pair, or an over pair to sequenced boards, and not to play your suited aces and unsuited ace kings too fast. Yes this is just $1 from your bankroll, but with a stunning win and some luck, you could find yourself another $75k richer.
Good luck, and hopefully you can end 2009 with a bang and win yourself a chunk of that $300,000 prize pool.
