Longest Non-Stop Poker Tourny (36.5hrs) Recognised As A World Record

Longest Non-Stop Poker Tourny (36.5hrs) Recognised As A World RecordThe Ironman Poker Challenge which took place at Delaware Park casino in 2012 has now been officially recognised  as the the “Longest Continuous Poker Tournament” by the Guinness World Record.
The Iron Man Poker Challenge was organised by the Delaware Park poker room, and 192 brave souls were attracted to the $600 buy-in competition to create a prize pool worth $100,608. However, with no tournament breaks allowed the event was as much about endurance as it was about the skills the players bought to the table.
Eventually, after a marathon thirty six hours, thirty four minutes and forty one seconds, it was Czech Republic player Peter Konas who topped the field to scoop the $27,160 first place prize, as well as the title of the new Iron Man of Poker. Narrowly missing out on the accolade was Josh Palmer of North Carolina, who managed to make it through to the heads-up phase before finishing the runner-up for $16,902.
As well as the entire 2012 Ironman Poker Challenge being recorded, it was also witnessed by Delaware Gaming Enforcement agents, who subsequently sent away all the documentation for approval by Guinness world record official. Earlier this month, Delaware Park was then given a certificate officially acknowledging its achievement and commenting on the record, Senior VP of Slots & Marketing Andy Gomeringer, said:
“We are exceptionally proud to be the home of an event that has made world history. The Ironman Poker Challenge attracts outstanding and dedicated players, and we are very pleased that Guinness has recognized the stamina and caliber of our players and the Delaware Park staff that supports them.”
