Randy Lew enters the record books

Monday, 9 January 2012

Randy Lew has earned himself a place in the Guinness Book of Records after an epic session of multitabling at the PCA. The man who plays online as nananoko was gunning for the record for the most hands played in an eight-hour session while still showing a profit.

With 42 cash tables on the go simultaneously, Lew managed to rack up a mammoth 23,493 hands and despite being down $1,200 at one stage showed a profit of $7.65. Those 23,493 hands translate to 2,936 hands per hour, almost 49 hands per minute or 1.23 hands per second. If he was playing a standard live cash table it would have taken him the best part of 783 hours to play the same number of hands.

As well as the tiny amount of cash, Lew also bagged himself an amazing 22,784 PokerStars FPPs as well as the all important place in the record books.
