Throwback Thursday: Phil Laak Breaks Guinness World Record at Bellagio
The WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic is celebrating its 15th anniversary. The Bellagio has long played host to this much loved tournament. Looking for this week's Throwback Thursday, we decided to find some of our favorite videos to emerge from the Bellagio poker room.
In this video, Kristy Arnett is tableside with Phil Laak as he breaks the world record for most hours of poker played. He even managed to go well over the needed time to achieve his goal. While Phil is busy in hands, Kristy talks to his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Tilly about how this whole idea came about.
