PokerStars: PokerStars Radio to cover World Record attempt

December 2, 2011

December is upon us and PokerStars’ 10th anniversary celebrations are underway. On Sunday, as part of the said celebrations, there will be a massive low buy-in MTT which is an attempt to set a new world record, by drawing more than 490k players. The currently standing record has also been set by PokerStars. PokerStars radio will be back in the mix too with a one-off show that will be hosted by Joe Stapleton and Nick Wealthall. The show will not just cover the event: it will offer players the opportunity to take down prizes, and to phone in and secure freeroll seats. Special guests shall be featured too, and it all kicks off at 5 PM (GMT) 30 minutes before the world record event gets going.

Those who do not have a PokerStars account, will be given a special treat if they sign up with the site using the bonus code given out during the show. They will get a ticket to a freeroll which takes place on December 18, and which rewards its top 20 finishers with entries to the $215 10th Anniversary Sunday Million special, which will feature a guaranteed prize-pool of $10 million and which starts right after the above said freeroll. Ten 10th Anniversary packages will also be distributed among lucky callers. Each of these packages consists of a PokerStars card protector, a hat, and a t-shirt straight from the PokerStars VIP store. One of the callers will get to take home a Citizen watch.

Those who fail to cash in the World Record tournament will get a second chance in the $1 event which runs from 6PM GMT on December 4. The second chance event will also give away 100 $11 tickets to the Sunday Storm. Registration for this Second Chance event is only possible through the use of the password given out during the PokerStars Radio show.
