Longest Poker Marathon - World Record Attempt

The current record for the longest time an individual has continuously played poker is 115 hours and was achieved by Phil Laak at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, from 2nd to 7th June 2010.... This summer, I will attempt to break the record.

In case you were wondering, 115 hours is 4.79 days, or 6,900 minutes or 414,000 seconds .

In that time you will blink 110,400 times, you will sweat 92 litres, and normally I would sleep about 33 hours!!
