On October 28, 2020, GGPoker Network (GGPN) issued a press release announcing that the WSOP Online Main Event is officially listed in the Guinness World Records as the largest prize pool for an online poker tournament.

Daniel Negreanu, ambassador of the brand, got a video-confirmation from Michael Empric, an official Guinness World Records judge:

Steve Preiss, Head of Poker operations at GGPoker, referred to the event:

“This Guinness World Records title was on our radar from the very beginning. Players and fans of poker expect nothing less than record-breaking prizes when it comes to the World Series of Poker, and GGPoker delivered.”

Recall that the Bulgarian player Stoyan Madanzhiev won the Main Event and got $3,904,686.
