I imagine loads of people will be queueing up to play him being that lack of sleep is bound to effect his skill, which is normally pretty high.

Ok, just be sure to tell me when the challenge starts so I can know when it is safe to sneak on Jennifer Tilly without this guy lurking around Tongue

i´ve played for a few years more then 70hours i think it´s not a great problem to play so long but it´s a problem not to lose all u money after 40 hours and go out after 78 hours with any winnings

Phil Laak is very sick and that's the reason why I do absolutely believe he'll achieve this amazing record...

But clearly we all know this is not good for your health doing this... Thumbs Down
