When you think of online poker, most people think of PokerStars. The online poker room is the largest online poker room in the world and their popularity is due to many factors. The site has the best in poker pros sponsored by their site as well as the best in online tournaments and land tournaments. The site has also started to get in the business of breaking world records. The site has broken several records over the past year and recently set out to break another one.

PokerStars has continually broken their record for the largest online poker game and the site has now moved on to break the record for the World’s Largest Poker Game. By World’s Largest Poker Game I mean the game used very large chips and cards for players to use to compete with.
PokerStars is the official partner of the England Rugby team and they worked with a few players from the team to break the world record. The site teamed up with James Haskell, Ben Foden and Delon Armitage to play the game and break the record.

The players are some of the most aggressive and competitive players on the field but they did not know what was in store for them during the event. the team arrived at the Pennyhill Park Hotel in Bagshot, Surrey to find they needed to use their muscle to play the game. The giant poker chips were as large as tires, though not as thick. The cards were large as well and had to be unloaded before the game could begin.

Armitage dealt the cards during the competition and he had to control the smack talk between Foden and Haskell as they both wanted to earn the win. In the end it was Foden who took the win and Haskell did not like that he lost and he took after Foden in rugby style.
