While some amateur online poker players have trouble playing at one table and a single screen, the opposite and even records beyond all understanding, are coming true. What the young Russian poker
player has achieved is simply amazing. The feat was followed live by no fewer than 10,000 people with two video streams, but also on a web radio. Thus, 'innerpsy' played exactly 40,088 hands in 24 hours.
After his exploit, the young Russian player declared that before this challenge he has never been able to play more than 20,000 hands in 24 hours. But he was always confident he could do it. 'Innerpsy' sat before the screens, Saturday at 8:30am. After 18 hours and 33 minutes, the 40,000 hands played were reached and he became at the same time the new world record for the number of online poker hands
played online in 24hrs. During these 40,088 hands, the Russian player lost about $15,000.
