GGPoker Sets A New (Unofficial) Online Poker Record

Reading Time: < 1 minutes


Back in August of 2020, GGPoker became a Guinness World Records holder for hosting the biggest prize pool in an online poker tournament with a staggering $27,559,500 prize pool. This achievement well surpassed the previous record, set a few months earlier by PokerStars in their 14th Anniversary Sunday Millions, which had an $18.6M prize pool.

The record, which some pundits thought would last forever, was unofficially broken yesterday when the combined Day 1 flights of the $5,000 WSOP Online MAIN EVENT attracted 6,023 unique players, creating a prize pool of $28,609,250.

This new unofficial record stands as a firm commitment to the poker community that GGPoker is now and will continue to be, the place for online poker.

From the field of 6,023 players, just 761 survived to Day 2. The final nine players will resume play this evening and compete for at least $250,000 each in prize money, with the outright winner’s prize standing at $2,783,432.
