To celebrate the sporting feats of athletes from across the world in February, PokerStars today announced that it will attempt to break its own world record for Largest Online Poker Tournament on February 23 at 13.00 ET.

The tournament will be a $1 No Limit Hold’em contest with a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000, and a maximum field of 230,000 players. If the cap is reached it will break the record set last June when 225,000 registered for a $1 tournament on PokerStars.

Last year’s winner was ‘M.SlavaPro’ from Russia, who won $25,000, and the same prize will be on offer to the winner this time around, with another $275,000 to be shared out among the top 60,000 players.

Players will be able to buy-in direct for $1 or win their seat for even less with a range of satellites available. Players who make a deposit of $10 (£7, € or more using bonus code ‘RECORD2014’ will get a free ticket to the tournament.
