Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

I enjoyed this tweet from early this morning better.

"The Bellagio is like a dream, only better. Just look around. So tranquil right now. Like a Star Trek mission to a Strange New World. "

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

I only just noticed Zimbler's record was for heads-up, but Laak is playing a ring game. This means Laak gets much more "down time" when he doesn't have to be thinking and playing hands. So surely even if he breaks the time record, it just won't be comparable?

I thought the official record was 72 and unofficial 78.

apparently that wasnt Guinness sanctioned so is not a "real world record". the world record that phil is trying to beat was from foxwoods 2004.

"he will tie the current "official" world record, at 6:49 PM: he will hit the current unofficial record, and at 8:04: he WILL hit his 80 hour mark!"

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Poker is 7 years behind DJing when it comes to endurance records. A DJ collapsed a little short of 80 hours back in 2003:
