10 years ago today: Remembering the record $1.3 million online poker pot Brian Pempus, USBets · November 21, 2019 at 12:32 pm There was a time when online poker cash games were basically a spectator sport. Today marks 10 years since the online poker world witnessed what is still a record hand, a $1.3 mm pot in pot-limit Omaha on the now defunct Full Tilt Poker. “Fasten [your] seatbelts,” one table observer in the chat box said as the money started flying in the record hand. “OMG” was the response of many others, with one person noting that one of the bets in the hand was the equivalent of wagering a yacht. “Is this real or play money?” asked another observer, unknowingly foreshadowing what turned out to be a complicated history for a hand that set the poker world on fire a decade ago.
