Help Choose Randy 'nanonoko' Lew's World Record Attempt!

Randy 'nanonoko' Lew will attempt to set or break a Guinness World Record at this year's PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. What the record will be is currently unknown.

We would like to have Two Plus Two's input on what Randy attempts. The record should be poker authentic (and preferably online poker authentic) while being easily understood by the public.

Take ElkY's record of "MOST ONLINE POKER TABLES PLAYED IN ONE HOUR". ElkY set this record by playing 62 Sit & Go Tournaments within an hour while making a profit. The difference between what ElkY accomplished and what the record book says is quite large. The average person would not understand the record "MOST SIT & GO TOURNAMENTS PLAYED IN ONE HOUR" or exactly why having a profit-clause is important.

We cannot emphasize enough that the main difficulty of coming up with a record for Randy to break is that a non-poker player at Guinness must understand the record and consider it meaningful. Some examples of rejected records:
-Most ring game tables played profitably in a given time period
-Most raises in a given time period

Please keep the above in mind when providing suggestions. We will credit a $215 entry to this Sunday's 10A Sunday Million to our favorite idea.

If Randy could attempt to play ten tables of each and every variation of poker sit and go's available on Poker Stars in a two hour period and win outright 10% of them, taking him across the full spectrum of games available on Poker Stars

Re: Help Choose Randy 'nanonoko' Lew's World Record Attempt!

Pitch it as 'Fastest poker player in the world'. Chose x hands as the target and time it - very understandable record for non poker players. The profit requirement is easily explained so people don't just fold every hand.

Re: Help Choose Randy 'nanonoko' Lew's World Record Attempt!

Most successful bluffs made in an hour while making a profit.

Define bluff as: winning the hand with no pair by making opponent(s) folding.

This will show to a non poker person that poker is also a skill.

Simple, easily understandable and measurable: Most online poker hands won in one hour. You can have a minimum number of players dealt to a hand to exclude heads up.

Most hands played in x number of hours. 24h would be great.
