Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Don't understand why this is such a big deal and surprised that record is such a low number of hours. I remember putting in 100 hour sessions, sleep for 20 hours, and another 72-100 session would follow. I drank tons of Mountain Dew, but that was my only assistance to stay awake. I also remember thinking that I could have gone longer, but I started to get self conscious about the way I must have looked and/or smelled, plus I started hallucinating often at the table, such as seeing imaginary flops before the dealer put one out, suits magically changing from spades to clubs, etc. Granted, I was 23 and had a pure love of the game at the time, but 78 hours ? Meh, not impressed.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Will they take a drug test?

They prob/certainly wont so its very very easy using Modafinil, Amphetamine, Methamphetamine or something. With Methamphetamine staying awake for 5 days+ is not a big problem. Its still very dangerous though.
I think nowadays if someone like Phil Laak, whos an attention whore anyway, it would be nice to see a drug test.
Without using anything this would be sick.

30 hands an hour for 79 hours equals about 2370 hands divided by 221 is ten to eleven hands he'll play.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

From Phil's twitter:

"RealPhilLaak so bummed. bad time for insomnia. i hear the birds chirping. need to sleep. had it all timed. oh no! 4 hrs now past bedtime. need to sleep! "

lol, I can never sleep the night before going on a big trip or doing something big the next day. If I was him, Tuesday night I would never get to sleep.

First the stream has to actually come online before finding out details such as hole cards, etc.

i mean not really anything to document, they do it every week, they call him "7 day ted" cuz jerry made a rule that hes only allowed to play for 7 days and then he has to go home, before that rule was made i think his record was like 10 days

tc pulls 4 or 5 day sessions on a very regular basis too, usually with less than a day of rest in between, what phils doing is really not that impressive, im sure like yosh or someone has crushed this many years ago too
