Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

If he can last the full duration and come out a winner, that is pretty crazy

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but how epic/hilarious would it have been if someone sat down at Phil's table the moment he sat down and vowed to break his record and not leave the table before him. Esentially making this whole record attempt by Phil pointless. And would have been even funnier if it was a 2+2 er

Two players have 100K plus, so twelve K, is ok.

I walked over to the B to see this up close. I hope he doesn't die or become seriously from this. He looked really beat down.

See, to create a bigger "ripple", you have to put that ^^ in fine print...

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

I wonder how he will react to a sound of shuffling chips the first time he sits at a poker table after this...

Not sure this qualifies as a "pot", but I tuned in briefly last night and caught the following hand. Laak raises to $400 preflop, and gets called by an unseen guy who was out of position. Flop comes 9xx, and the unseen guy goes all-in. Laak folds, and the unseen guy shows 93 offsuit. Nice preflop call, lol.

It would really suck if he became serious from it.
