The 2020 World Series of Poker has set incredible records. However, the organizers of the famous poker tournament decided to go further and officially register the biggest achievement of the championship this year.
Thus, the 2020 WSOP Online Poker Championship was entered in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest online tournament with a total prize $27,559,500. Daniel Negreanu, GGpoker Ambassador, discovered this from the official judge of Guinness World Records - Michael Emprick, via video:
Steve Preiss, Head of Poker Operations at GGpoker, commented:
“This Guinness World Record title has been on our radar since the beginning. Poker players and fans expect nothing less than record prizes when it comes to the World Series of Poker, and GGPoker has been able to achieve them. "
It is worth mentioning that this is not the first time online poker has appeared in the Guinness Book of Records. Well-known poker players have already set records earlier. One of the most recent is Tom Maaswinkel's 2019 record. He ran the longest online poker marathon - 24 hours.
