• Barry Denson to Try and Break Phil Laak’s Record for ‘Longest Poker Marathon’

    May 4, 2012
    UK poker player Barry Denson is looking to beat Phil “The Unabomber” Laak’s record for the longest poker session by a single player. Laak holds the current record at 115 hours (nearly 5 days), which is pretty sick.

    Denson is doing this for a good cause, and we certainly will be rooting for him. It’s to raise money for Help For Heroes charity.

    “Being an ex-Territorial Army soldier myself, I am pleased to be able to raise money for such a worthy cause, ” said Denson. Although he will only be able to take a five-minute break every hour Denson explains that he is not really bothered about the tiredness instead he needs more volunteers to take him on.

    “One of the biggest challenges will be finding enough players to play me. Guinness World Records™ will only allow other players to play for up to four hours at a time so we need as many players as possible to come along and take part, especially in the early hours or in the mornings!”
