Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

He really does look quite fresh, pretty disappointing! When Paul Zimbler did it he looked like he was going to die lol:

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

ish just got real imo

80 near but 90 is the new 80. True. That is what sleep depravation will do to a guy. So hope those articles about what can happen are wrong

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

This is totally insane. I had my doubts when I heard the initial challenge. Congrats Phil hope this generates more exposure for Unibomber poker (or what ever the site is called) but tbh I don't think it will appeal to a broader demographic but props for the record

Looks like he's officially trying to for 90 now. Phil Laak is awesome, still going strong at 78 hours.

They surely are not playing, I have seen that flop laying out there for 5 minutes.

Laak just won a huge pot. All-in against Esfandiari .. they ran it 4 times, Phil scooped.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Laak had AA... Antonio had to have had QQ to not win at least part of that pot, since 2 kings, 1 jack and 1 ten came. AK or 78 also possible, but not likely given the way the hand was played out. 98% sure it was QQ.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Phil said he was officially unstuck. I think he was down somewhere between 10k and 20k or maybe even more, and is now up.

Hey you can't knock playing 10 hands in 80 hours when you leave a winner.

Funny, I didn't think there were trolls around here from '06.

Laak's a beast ! Chatting it up, going over 80 hours, like it's just another day, I don't know how guys put in these kinda sessions.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Congrats to Phil for breaking the record... now, how long is he going to keep going to try to ensure it isn't broken again soon?
