Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

I witnessed a sizeable pot during the broadcast. Board KK55x. Other player moves all in.

Laak asks what he has. Other player :" What do you think I f-ing have?" Laak calls all in shove and turns over 5-8 offsuit, scoops the pot. Other player mucks and says he had a pocket pair.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Phil's interview on the 2+2 pokercast was amusing. He was on 3:40 hours sleep just 36 hours before this started. Its episode 123.

He probably wins if it has 2 hearts. Too bad.

can't remember the name of it, but there's a very rare disease which can keep people up for right around a year before they kick the bucket.

so a year, give or take.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

If he's using Modafinil or adderal or something this isn't impressing. Does he show any signs(other then that he always look speeded) that he's high? Oversized pupils?

Adderal would make this harder.

How is it that I have not yet hallucinated even one time yet? Seems like I got handed the short end of the stick again.
