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

I'm having trouble thinking of an idea that's really worthy for Guinness.

A bunch of these ideas are good, but none of them are worth being in the Guinness Book of World Records.

I will steal someone's idea I read from twitter: "Most disconnections while playing an hour of poker". If you've been to the PCA, you'd understand.

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

How about something with an international flair.
Most countries played by one opponent at one time heads up.

I am not sure how many countires are represented on Stars. But lets say there are 24 so you could have 24 heads up tables going at once with Randy playing 24 different countries at once.

All players on Stars would have equal opportunity to play in this promotion
and rep their country.

You could have a heads up table designated for each country. Each country would be represented by one player. To get the chance to represent your country in this you would have to win a multitable tourney. The prize money for winning the tourney would be the bankroll you and Randy need to bring to the table.

The prize money may differ relative to the number of your country's players entering the muliti but this should not be a hinderance.

You might be able to build this up by having satellites etc...

Needs some fine tuning but it might work.

Play and win the PCA main event while simultaneously 24-tabling on a 15'' laptop with a profit of at least 50.000$.

Stick him in one of those indoor skydiving windtunnels with a laptop and see how much cash he can make without touching earth.

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

most players beat in a period of time. like, put him after each orbit on a different table with the objective of having a profit on the biggest number of players he can.

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

Most number of game variations played in one time period
He can boot up a table for each poker variation (NLHE, PLO, LHE, LO, 7stud, 5draw, etc.) but must keep playing them ALL and earn profit over X amount of hours

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

can we give more than one suggestion? if not, keep the first one. if so: put him with a laptop jumping off an airplane while playing a hyper turbo HUSNG, maybe more than one. see if he can win. "biggest number of heads up wins while jumping of an airplane".

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

largest amount of people 1 person has staked in a mtt(and also playing the mtt) and STILL turn a profit!

so randy would haveta stake like 1000 people in an $11 mtt(sunday storm) and then randy will haveta get like the top 5, now this would be impressive!

I actually like this one! It's something different than x amount of hands in x amount of time or winrate or any of the other suggestions (including mine).

Could use some tweaking to make it even more newsworthy but definitely like where this could go!

Do a marathon record! Longest time consecutively 24 tabling (probably while making profit).

Or how about the most consecutive profitable hours (I think this one's the winner)

To me with the advent of the internet Guiness, given its international significance, should begin recognizing records that bring the world together.
It's worth a shot.

Similar to this Guiness record:
