Exclamation Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

the body can be trained for polyphasic sleep for around 2 hrs a day at 15 min every 4 hours or somewhere +or- very close to that range.there are actually machines that simulate rem only sleep that can make this possible.Bet your 100k with caution in this instance

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Sorry but two weeks with only 15 min nap three times a day, hey I am down for it. But if we were to be serious, you would have to put up a serious amount of money. Good luck getting 15 min of sleep in a poker room, or wasting 8 min to get to your room to do whatever you need.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

There have been people who have lived for long times sleeping for 20 minutes every 4 hours, 30 minutes every 5 hours etc. Look up Polyphasic sleeping. It's not really great for you and it's difficult to get in such a routine, but it still can be done.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Theres a few angle shoots in this attempt:

1- he's got dark shades on, who says he's not resting his eyes for 15 seconds a hand?

2- hes standing up and leaning over the table so often and walking around, its not like hes actually at the table for 80 hours.

3- hes using an electronic device the whole time AT the table, that crap shouldn't be allowed, there should be someone who does updates for him.

4- his breaks, how do we know hes not sleeping for 5 minutes or where he goes? what if he wanted to take a dump for 20 min but just slept, then came out, who would know?

if he stayed at the table for the whole 80 hours he would most likely get a blood clot and die. not a good idea

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Didn't read whole thread. How large is the prop bet for this? Do we know how much he stands to win/lose?

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

It's no surprise he's stuck 5500 now, look at him he folds, then either talks to someone or writes on his notepad, or goes on his blackberry. he isnt into it.
he's putting much more work doing everything except poker right now like showering, eating keeping stats... other than looking around the table paying attention to players trying to pickup tells and betting patterns and all like he should be. I hope his props will cover the 20k hes gonna lose playing poker.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

he's going to end the session down 500k imo, there's definitely going to be a correlation between time elapsed and a decrease in skill/awareness etc
