Proving once and for all that he can take degeneracy to new levels, the Phil Laak Poker Endurance Challenge has not only broken its 108th hour as at the time of writing, but has well and truly crushed the previous Guinness World Record of 78 hours, 25 minutes and 45 seconds held by Paul Zimbler.  What’s Laak been doing for the last four odd days?  Playing poker obv.

WSOP 2010 Kicks Off At The Rio

Its that time again, where decency gives way to degeneracy and thousands of would be punter hero’s put their money where their mouths are and pony up the cash to wage war on the felt.  The World Series of Poker 2010 has begun.  From the Rio Casino and Hotel, five events have already seen bracelets deposited on the arms of the winning players, and the race for contention for the 2010 Player of the Year is also underway. The World Series is a time where past beats can be forgotten, new strategies unveiled, and long standing dreams become a reality.

Aussie Millions 2010 Kickoff

Well, Day 1a of event 1 in the 2010 Aussie Millions started yesterday and Day 1b is currently in progress.  We had a fun lead up to this years Millions and wrapped up our Golden Ticket tournament.  Our mate who managed 29th in last years Millions took down the mantle and the honour of representing the group this year.  The best player certainly won, with a good show by second who was only a few points behind.  Both are playing today so I wish them the best of luck.

Yours truly only managed a third in the Golden Ticket tourney, which earned me a phase 2 to the Main Event.  I’ve turned that into a phase 3 ticket which I’m hoping to make use of in the next few days, and am likely to make a few more runs through the satellites if time permits.

With 327 runners in Day 1a and 310 in Day 1b, with the new repecharge rules, expectations are high that the prize pool will top a Million dollars.  Not too shabby.  I hope the lads can put in a good show.

Aussie Millions 2009 Main Event – Day 1a

It’s here, it’s started, and the bloodletting has already begun at this years Aussie Millions 2009 Main Event. If you’re a pro or spectator from the States or UK the prospect of a 2 million guaranteed first prize tournament might not warrant a gruelling 23 hour plane trip. It is, afterall, one big buy in event in a Country far far away. But for we skips down under, it’s the biggest event in town, and even though the official numbers are expected to drop from last years entrants, the Aussie Millions has still managed to yield a star studded field.
