Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

On the pokercast he said that at no point it was mentioned by the guinness-people that he can't sleep during his breaks but also said that it was probably to commonsense to mention.

Well presumably you still have enough left from your big win to sit at a 10/20 game

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

thats a shock to me, but I guess he'd be so ****ed without a few powernaps. Did the other guy (paul zimbler?) get some sleep?

He would if his brain is exhausted enough.

How so?

It's not really the same thing but I stayed awake for a couple of days during my dissertation where I power napped for 30 mins and when I awoke, each time I would feel fresh (well, fresh enough).

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Honestly can we get a clarification if he is allowed to sleep or not. If he can what is the point of this challenge?

Ae you ******ed? It's an endurance challenge under the Guinness world record rules. He's breaking a world record, that's the point of this challenge.

If it turns out he's been taking naps even if it's under the rules, then I hope camp sunshine burns down

Wow, just Wow!

115 hours and up $6,466 and still hung around a little bit to chat with his crew.

Good job to everyone!

Red Shirt Guy took his $413.00 and split last night. Now he can afford to purchase the Nugget, finally!

GJ to all the crew. You guys did a bangup job keeping Phil going and streaming the video. Was a truly entertaining weekend+
