Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session (Goes 115 hours)

RealPhilLaak : Woke up - had 2 bowls of cereal, then as an after thought had a ham sandwich. Thinking about going to play some 10/20 at the Bellagio.

Only after ~12 hours of sleep.

So why did Zimbler look so bad when he did his and Laak seemed much fresher in comparison? It can't all be down to the format they played.

well I think the heads up format takes alot out of you...I mean Laak only had to look at his cards every view minutes and then play a hand every half hour or so...Heads up Zimbler probably almost played every hand and therefor had to concentrate every time...

...but I don't think we need to compare...both great and fun achievements

Phil was bread for this challenge. He probably could have gone longer. He's wire'y, sorta hyper, trained for this, lost 25 pounds, had the motivation, etc etc

Good job, Phil, it was surprisingly entertaining.

is true, amazing how entertaining it actually was. camera pointing at him bouncing around, can't really hear or see anything exciting

that side bar chat on the live stream was as interesting as the feed

Apparently, Laak took short naps. Don't know about Zimbler.

ya but come on that guy didnt die from ONE 50 hour session of WOW he lived his life like this everyday constantly for god knows how long before his body said "Enough im done" and just shut down on him..im sure that Laak will be fine at attempting the WR but i personally think you would pass out before then.

yeah, if you've ever been in a korean pc room, you'd understand why those people die. gaunt chainsmoking gaming addicts living off ramen and soft drinks.
