"Unabomber" attempts to set world record for endurance

20 May 2010

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Poker professional Phil "The Unabomber" Laak is looking to set a new world record for the most hours of poker played in a single sitting.

Taking place at the luxurious Bellagio Poker Room in Las Vegas, starting on June 2, Laak will be looking to break the world record of 78 straight hours of playing poker which was set by Paul Zimbler in the fall of 2009.

Phil Laak is an internationally recognized poker pro, known for his iconic look at the poker table where he wears sunglasses and a hooded sweatshirt pulled over his head. He is also a regular on televised poker shows like Poker After Dark and High Stakes Poker. His animated personality, banter at the tables and interest in participating in sometimes bizarre propositional bets have also contributed to his renown.

"I have played many enduro sessions of poker, but never anything of this magnitude," stated Laak. "I know this will test my limits but I love a good challenge and am excited to be trying to beat this record in Vegas' top poker room."
