Delaware Park's Ironman Poker Challenge Breaks World Record

This week’s Delaware Park’s Ironman Poker Challenge broke the Guinness record for longest consecutive tournament at 36 hours, 34 minutes and 11 seconds.

Ultimately it was Czech Republic player Peter Konas who topped the field to scoop the $27,160 first place prize.  He also now holds the prestigious Iron Man of Poker title.

"We are exceptionally proud to be the home of an event that has made world history," said Andy Gomeringer, Senior Vice President of Slots & Marketing.

 "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."

192 people took part in the record breaking event.
