Phil Laak Wins Bracelet 400x300
The debate on whether a WSOP Europe bracelet is indeed a valid bracelet or not has reached a new level.   Matt Savage was recently quoted on This Week in Poker as saying the following about bracelets won outside of Vegas: "I don't like it.  I don't think it's like a real bracelet. "  And "The World Series was founded in Vegas, and that's kind of what it's about.

Phil Laak 245x300
Congratulations to Phil Laak for winning his first bracelet. WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!? Phil Laak won a bracelet?!?!? O_O Yup, Phil Laak just took down Event #1 at the World Series of Poker Europe for his first bracelet and £ 170,802. He survived a stacked field of 244 players and a final table that included Chris Bjorin. Also, don't forget that he did this all while playing with a broken arm and recovering from a serious accident he had last month.

Phil Laak Shatters Record

9 June 2010 , By: Melissa Castello
Phil Laak is known for being outrageous but I don't think that word can really describe what he just did.   Laak played poker for over 115 hours straight at the Bellagio poker room this week. He set out to break the Guinness world record of 72 hours and 2 minutes by Larry Olmsted and the unofficial record by Dave Cain of 74 hours and 12 minutes. Not only did he do that but he set a completely new standard of crazy and played for over 115 hours.
