Damon Shulenberger Wins Longest Poker Tournament in History

American Damon Shulenberger has won the longest poker tournament in history, a grueling 48 hour event. 

The APT-RWM Iron Man Poker Challenge officially took 48 hours, 55 minutes, and 58.5 seconds.  Shulenberger’s accomplishment surpassed that of Korean player Choi Byung Kyoo. 

“I have never experienced anything like it in my life,” said Shulenberger. “Not only going without sleep for two nights straight but I started at Level 1 at 8 pm and never left the table for five minutes, until almost 50 hours later, with winning the championship.”

Shulenberger walks away with $18,240.
