The attempt by to break it's own Guiness Book of World Records entry for most online Poker players in action simultaneously  has been successful, with the globally respected book accepting PokerStars' meticulously presented records of the event.
PokerStars set a target of 35 000 as a convincing demonstration of its world leadership in Internet poker, and grew increasingly confident as registrations for the big $11 buy-in NLHE event poured in, hitting the cut-off point well in advance of the actual tournament.
A statement from PokerStars revealed that the record-breaking traffic created by the attempt saw well over a quarter million poker players on the website, straining technological services and taking up seats on almost 34 000 tables.
