Endurance in poker game: Barry Denson better than Phil Laak

To beat the record set by Phil Laak in June 2010, he played poker for more than 115 hours on the same table. And the British Barry Denson achieved this feat that he prepared for more than two months. Indeed, he was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the best marathoner in cash games. Note that Denson managed to stay in the game for more than 120 hours and 20 minutes at G Casino in Manchester, UK. He took a pause time of 5 minutes every hour and could cumulate a quarter of these breaks. In short, he beat 5 hours and 20 minutes Phil Laak, which is a fantastic achievement.

But what makes even more extraordinary this feat achieved by the Englishman is that he did it for a good cause. Indeed, apart from the desire to inscribe his name in the record books, Denson also wanted to contribute to the development of the activity of the charity Help For Heroes. This organization helps war wounded. With his feat so, he was able to offer a sum of £ 1,000 to the association. Denson thanked people who supported him in this adventure. He didn’t also failed to contact Phil Laak by inciting him to change some information on his Wikipedia page. Poker enthusiasts are awaiting the reaction of Phil Laak. Given his character, he would once again meet the challenge to try to beat this record.
