Paddy Power Poker sets chip stack world record

Friday, 22 October 2010

After Dusk Till Dawn's record breaking attempt comes news of another successful bid to enter the famous Guinness record book.

Paddy Power Poker has marked this weekend's Irish Winter Poker Festival in Dublin by building a stack that even Phil Ivey might struggle to match. The Irish poker room's five-man team took 72 hours to build a monumental chip pile that measured 3m high and 50cm wide. In all over 75,000 chips were used to construct the monumental mountain of chips.

Paddy Power said, "We had our fair share of wobbles along the way and one complete collapse but we held our nerve and it was definitely worth it for the honour of a Guinness World Record. The giant stack is yet another reason to get down to the Burlington Hotel in Dublin for the Irish Winter Festival this weekend."
