Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

is he doing this world record attempt because he can't win a poker tournament proper?

except the made for tv party poker heats and poker after dark heats... but i don't believe these really count or do they?

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Big difference between the DJ and Laak is that the DJ is standing up the whole time. I wonder if that is a requirement for the record. Seems like the extra energy to stand would take many hours off your potential max.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Watching the livestream... with the chat its kinda endurable though there is a lot of echo from time to time. Truly impressed Phil! Go go go!

I'm thinking the headphones really help with a challenge like this: Less noise for the brain to filter = less work.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

i have been following this on twitter, every now and then Phil will post a twitpic of someone else at the table, ie: antonio, andrew robl, etc...

in these pics of other players at the table they often have a clear plastic box over a majority of their chip stacks!?!?

i have never seen this before, anyone know what this is about?!

ex here http://twitpic.com/1u8n87

It's when someone goes on break they put the box over the original owners chip stack so someone else can play without mixing up the other persons chip. Antonio did this when Seat 1 was on break.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

It would be good if he were mic'd up.

He's looking pretty fresh for someone who's been awake that long.

Is that a recent "innovation" at Bellagio? I've never seen this done, but I've only played 10/20 a handful of times.
