At the beginning of October we brought you the news that PokerStars were all set to stage their 800 millionth tournament, a tournament that would form part of their Carnival of Tournaments, and a tournament that would come with a $1million guarantee. Well thanks to a record entry the $1million guarantee was smashed out of the water, and in total a prize fund of more than $2million was generated.

The 800 millionth tournament took place on Sunday 20th October with the eventual winner being Belgium’s “tupac_sjr” who took home the whopping first prize of $216,358. The prize fund for the special 800 millionth tournament was a $1million guarantee, but thanks to the 21,635 players who entered the $109 tournament the eventual prize pool stood at $2,163,500, with the final table alone sharing $750,000 between them.

The Carnival of Tournaments at PokerStars proved to be a huge success with nearly $4million being paid out last week alone, a figure that well and truly goes to show that online poker is thriving and doing better than ever.
