    POKERSTARS REPORTS BIGGEST EVER SUNDAY TURNOUT

    Proving once again that poker pulls players, there were almost 11 000 entrants in last Sunday's tournament

    Continuing to break online poker records in its regular Sunday tournaments, Poker Stars.com achieved a stunning new all-time attendance record this weekend when 10 894 players pitched for its big Sunday Millions event.

    Just under a day after dishing out $100 000 and $10 000 bonanzas to celebrate the dealing of its 10 billionth hand, which saw a record 100 000 players online (see previous InfoPowa report) the world's largest online poker site continued to pack 'em in.

    The rewards were significant, as the huge turnout generated a prize-pool of $2.4 million - beating a previous record back in March this year, when 10 500 players mustered online to mark the first anniversary of the Sunday Millions phenomenon.

    To flag that 10 billionth hand, Poker Stars management boosted the prize-pool with an additional $250 000, further whetting the appetite of an entry field that took 11 hours to play down to one big winner.

    That winner was an online poker player from Newark, New Jersey using the handle "tanbai" who picked up a paycheck that was worth $187 000 for his efforts. And according to the Official Poker Rankings.com site, the player had never finished higher than 8th in a Poker Stars tournament!
