Phil Laak Poker Record Day 1
Phil Laak began his 80-hour poker playing journey today at 12 noon on the dot. He began with 4,000 dollars and was down 1200 in the first hour. He is wearing his signature grey hoodie and sunglasses, the uniform that gave him his famous 'unabomber' nickname. Laak has three staff members taking shifts to be with him at all times. They are logging his times and filming him nonstop for the Guinness book of world records.
There have been a few fans come to watch, and people are waiting in line to play at Phil's table.
