Poker Pros Already Looking Forward to 2014 World Series of Poker

Fri, 3 Jan 2014

The Asian Poker Tour held the Iron Man Challenge recently and the tournament broke a record for the longest continuous poker tournament in history. Many poker pros competed in the event including Sam Razavi who was recently named the Asian Poker Tour Player of the Year.

A total of 115 players competed in the Iron Man Challenge at Resorts World Manila. They each paid $700 to enter and each player started with 100,000 in chips. The goal for the tournament was to break the record of 36 plus hours straight that was set in 2012 in a United States tournament. Not only did the Iron Man Challenge break the record, they shattered it. The Iron Man Challenge began on Friday and took 48 hours, 55 minutes and 58 seconds to complete. The eventual champion was Damon Shulenberger who won the first place prize of $18,240. “I have never experienced anything like it in my life.” Shulenberge said, “ Not only going without sleep for two nights straight, but I started at Level One at 8pm and never left the table for five minutes, until almost 50 hours later, with winning the championship,”

The top 18 players made the money in the Iron Man Challenge including poker pro Sam Razavi who finished in 11th place. Razavi was recently named the APT Player of the Year, winning the award for the second straight year.
