Slow and steady. That's how I would describe day 2 of Phil Laak's 80 hour attempt at the Guinness record for endurance poker. He finally climbed out of the gutter and is now showing a profit.
In 32 hours, Phil has only taken six breaks- five 5-minute breaks and one 20-minute break. He has consumed only 4 bottles of water, and has eaten only five small meals, all prepared by his nutritionist, All-American Dave.
Phil's girlfriend, actress and fellow pro poker player Jennifer Tilly has been stopping by, offering hugs, kisses and words of encouragement.
He is still coherent and says he is feeling great. His only ailment so far is his back. He is combatting pain with a sturdy seat cushion.
The Bellagio poker room is packed on a busy Thursday night. Fans are crowding around the table just to get a glimpse at the history-maker
