Phil Laak aims for a new world record

Tags: Bellagio, Paul Zimbler, phil laak, world record
Posted on 20 May 2010 by "T".
Last year, Paul Zimbler wrote history when he played poker for 78 hours straight without sleeping. To be precise, he played for 78 hours, 25 minutes and 45 seconds. In other words, about 3 days of poker. Phil "The Unabomber" Laak thinks that he can break the old record and therefore he's also going to try.

I'm guessing the record requires him to end up winning at the end of the session, otherwise anyone could do it.

He is playing live because he know he would got owned by playing multitable or something online when he's to tired...
Now he can play really slowly... and even loosing not much he can brake it.

If Laak talks as much as he does in the High Stakes Poker tv shows, he will most likely play less than 100 hands in 80 hours. Big Smile

Unabomber is one of my fav high stakes players - when he joins the table, it gets alive.

I agree, I think hundreds of poker players will want to rape him for his money while he drowns his head in his last twenty chips after his second day there! (lol Big Smile ) I think it will be interesting though, I'm anxious to see what will happen and if he'll even make it the first 48 hours?? Does anyone know where he will be playing?

He should have done a record attempt in talking nonsense 120 hours straight while folding 99/100 hands. Thats what hes definetly good at. Sorry, but a weird image plus playing rocktight and always fold to big bluffs doesnt impress me that much.

I like the guy as a person, but when it comes to playing against the elite, hes definetly an underdog.

He can do it, he is one of the most entertaining players around and I am sure he will be doing lots of crazy things to stay awake. Will be a good test for him and will make interesting viewing if he is as normal as he usually is......bordering on crazy genuis that is!

My record is something like 35-36 hours, but it was online, where you have action all the time, that keeps you awake. Also every hour i brought myself coffee and had a cigarette. Club
