Iron Man Poker Challenge

The Delaware Park Casino hosted what has become the longest poker tournament on record this past weekend.  The Iron Man Poker Challenge lasted nearly 32 hours.  Hieu Tran eventually won the event and walked away with $43,761.

A total of 376 players took part in the tournament.  The previous record was held at the Commerce Casino in 2009, lasting19 hours before a winner was crowned.

Despite becoming the longest documented poker tournament, the Iron Man Challenge failed to make the Guinness Book of World Records as it would have had to last 36 hours.
