Guinness World Record Attempt for Poker Playing Marathon to

Postby Theshark » Wed Nov 02, 2011 7:08 pm

The Shark is ready to change poker history and all of that is going to happen right here in India at the Casino Royale, Goa in November 2011.

The Shark is organizing the India Poker Legend Marathon Cash Games Session from the 22nd – 27th November 2011, where the Guinness Book of World Record's longest marathon poker session held by Phil Laak (115 hours at the Bellagio in Las Vegas in June 2010) will be challenged.

Maximum 9 players will attempt to break this record and the last man standing after 115 hours will go down into the Guinness Book of World Record. The organizers have already signed up 5 players to attempt this record and are limiting entry to 9 players, so any other players who believe they could challenge this record should contact the organizers soon.

The organizers have sent a message to all poker players in India and abroad saying “Even if players do not want to participate, we encourage you to come to just watch, cheer and support the participants in putting Indian Poker on the World Poker Map. To keep all supporters involved there will of course be cash games running throughout the event suiting every buy-in.”

The event has been officially sanctioned by Guinness World Records, the ultimate authority on record-breaking achievement and the organizers are taking every care to follow the guidelines provided by Guinness such that if the record is broken, then the record should get listed with Guinness.

The organizers of the event – The Shark are involved in organization of multiple successful poker tourney brands in India including “Poker Dream Challenge”, “India Poker Open” and “India Poker Legend”. The organizers see India as an emerging, but fast growing market and believe that within the next 12 months, India will become a regular stop on the Asian Poker Circuit.

For any enquiries regarding the attempt by players, media or sponsors, please log onto www.theshark.in or contact by email at info@theshark.in or by calling Pranav Bagai +91-9818206165, +91-11-46512064.

The IPL Marathon Cash Games Event from November 22nd - 27th at Casino Royale has been postponed for the time being due to certain guidelines that have been shared by Guinness at the last minute. These guidelines cannot be implemented in such a short period. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. Our next event will be held from January 25th - 29th, 2012 (Republiic Day long weekend) at Casino Royale, Goa featuring a main event with a buy in of INR 100k."
