The WPT: Liechtenstein Prime has officially become the biggest in history

The expectations of even the biggest optimists were clearly exceeded, and the Liechtenstein stop of the WPT Prime series can officially be proud of the title of the biggest in history.

The show called WPT Prime Liechtenstein has made it clear from the beginning that it has no problem attracting players from different corners of the world. They started fighting for a guarantee in the value of one million francs from Wednesday, and it was already on the verge of collapse yesterday before the strongest two flights. Everyone was aware that it is not a question of whether the guarantee will fall, but rather how much it will be exceeded, and whether it will be possible to attack the series record, which is held by the stop in Taiwan with 1,359 entries.

Already at noon, the casino began to fill up, the clatter of chips could be heard from all sides, and the counter of entries was constantly growing. After the seventh level, it stopped at 539, which made this flight the strongest of all! From that day, a group of 68 advanced was formed, but the numbers from that day already suggested that even the Taiwanese record would not be a problem to beat.
