“DaDumon”, a player from Austria, turned his $0,01 buy-in into a $10,000 windfall on PokerStars earlier this week as the online poker giant hosted the kickoff event to the Common Cents tournament series.

A grand total of 253,698 players participated in the event, making it the largest tournament in online poker history. The previous record of 225,000 players was set in June of 2013.
