Rather like snooker players, poker professionals aren't usually renowned for their amazing physical prowess.
One player who counters that stereotype though is Phil Laak who has just officially entered the Guinness Book of Records for the 'longest marathon playing poker by an individual'.Laak, played uninterrupted for an incredible 115 hours at the Bellagio Poker Room in Las Vegas last year. Not only did the Unabomber complete the epic session, he also managed to show a $6,766 profit over the five days playing $10/$20 no limit hold'em. "I was shooting for 80 hours all along and eventually it came. The obvious next step was to honour the moment by making the most of it. A gambling degenerate by trade this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see what my inner vampire was really made of," stated Laak. "Well we sure found out! This has been one of the most wonderful journeys I've ever taken, touchingly human and beautiful on so many levels." We'll take his word for it.
