Ninety hours of an active game – a new poker record

Many players like to set temporary poker records. It is impossible to say whether it occurs purposely or deliberately but if such situation happens the participants of a tournament haste to use it.

There were just a few such records in a modern history. The first one that happened in 2009 belongs to Paul Tsimbler. He was playing for 74 hours and 20 minutes with 83 players one part of whom were beginners, and another one – skilled professionals. This news became so significant in the poker world that many players tried to reiterate such unique Tsimbler’s achievement as a result.

In several years the achievement of Paul Tsimbler was not just reiterated but also improved. The Irish player Phil Laak got into the Guinness book of world records. He managed to spend not only 18 hours more in a game but could also win about 7 thousand dollars. By the way, formally Phil Laak's time at a game table exceeded 100 hours, but referees of the project deducted the hours spent on rest. After the game finished Phil Laak confessed to the journalists that he just wanted to spend 75 hours at a game table to break Tsimbler's record. But the game situation developed in such a way that he managed playing within 90 hours.
