Phil Laak Aims for World Record - More Than 74 Hours of Non-Stop Poker
The American poker pro Phil ’Unabomber’ Laak has in his sights to break world record for the longest poker session, set by Paul Zimbler in 2009. The 2009 record set by Paul Zimbler took place at the WSOPE, where the British poker player played heads-up matches for 74 hours 20 minutes and 21 seconds. Paul had a convincing winrate (he won 102 matches out of 183), considering that he was playing straight for 74 hours and up against other poker pros like Mike Matusow and Phil Hellmuth.
WPT winner Phil Laak is planning to break Zimbler’s record, starting his never-ending session on the 2nd June, at the WSOP in the Bellagio Las Vegas.
"I have played many enduro sessions of poker, but never anything of this magnitude," stated Laak. "I know this will test my limits but I love a good challenge and am excited to be trying to beat this record in Vegas' top poker room" said Laak.
