The World Series Of Card Stacking?
Total Pro Sports – So I had to check this up and no, it is not yet an event at the annual World Series of Poker which is currently taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, but if there was a bracelet awarded for card stacking, then it would not be very hard finding a winner.
During the 2009 WSOP, Bryan Berg, the world record holder for card stacking, was on hand to build the London skyline for Betfair Poker using several decks of cards. How long did it actually take? We are not sure, but thankfully it was cut down to 1 minute 37 seconds for our viewing pleasure. Luckily Brad Garrett‘s girlfriend was not around to provide any distractions.
As for the actual competition, Phil Ivey currently looks to be in good shape to add to his 2009 WSOP win totals as he sits in third place with only 64 participants remaining. Also in the mix is Antonio Esfandiari, sitting in 6th. These tow pros are in good shape, headlining the top 10, and intimidation may become a factor allowing for a familiar face to take home over $8.5 million first place prize and the main event bracelet.
Here is Bryan Berg’s card stacking.
