Phil Laak Looks To Break Guinness Poker Record
May 21, 2022
Phil “The Unibomber” Laak, apparently not tasked enough by the events of the upcoming World Series of Poker, has decided to add a new challenge of his own, breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest continual session of poker.

Laak, according to his popular blog, has been training for this “enduro session” for some time now and has even reached an agreement with the famous Bellagio card room, to host his record setting attempt next month on June 2nd. 

Phil will need to play poker for a little more than 74 hours to earn his own place in the famous Guinness Book of World Records- and to supplant current record holder Paul Zimbler- though apparently he’s actually looking to break 80 in order to secure his spot in history for as long as possible.

Just as Zimbler used his record setting attempt to raise a substantial amount of money for charity, Laak too will also try to do some good with this attempt, donating half of whatever he wins to Camp Sunshine, an organization dedicated to supporting children with life threatening illnessess and their families, via a week long fully supported retreat.
