This is a discussion on Longest session within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Everyone comment there longest poker session ever, personally i once play a tournament for about 15 hours straight!
The longest I have ever played, and I only play online, was 14 hours when I ended up 3rd in a tourney on Cake Poker, for my biggest ever cash which was $800.
These days, getting on a bit, I find that after a couple of hours I start to feel tired and my brain goes all fuzzy, even fuzzier than normal.
I love tourneys but they go on too long for me so these days I stick to sit and gos and cash games.
Mine usually never exceeds 6 hours, in case of going far in some tournament I usually only have the attention in that tournament because it is already out of the others so it does not affect me much that the time is extended ,,, the time that more last i think it was years ago in a poker tournament at pokerstars it was like 11 hours
Playing an online tournament reaching the final table, the longest duration has been almost 8 hours playing a single round. A long time ago in my beginnings I played online poker sessions for around 10 hours playing poker in various multi-table tournaments, but I would stop very tired and stop doing it, at that time the longest was 14 hours I remember sitting in the morning and I stood up in the middle of the night tired and with a headache and I didn't try anymore. now I only play 4-6 hours depending on how I go through the game session.
my longest session was around 11am it was exhausting but i was winning all my hands every time i wanted to quit it was awesome how lucky i was when i was doing allin to go to sleep i started the tournament at 10 p.m. and finished it the next day around 8 a.m., but won 720$ being second and "was really happy
If you read my posts for the last three years there was a period of my life when I was a little bedridden because of my injury so I want to tell you when you are lying in bed in a cast 3648 and then 1000 hours you have the opportunity to play the longest poker game that lasted in my 48 hours two days
Every citizen has his opinion which is the most correct !!
Still kind on the topic of card playing endurance...
Twice I have played BlackJack at the casino, same seat, for 20+ hours...
Once was with a buddy, and we agreed to split winnings/losings. We went down 2k or so very early. Finally, we go back to $50 up and said let's just go have the breakfast buffet and call it good! LOL!
The other time it was just me, I had played at a table for let's just say 6+ hours, the pit boss came by and said, I am ending my shift now, but you seem to be anchored down here, are you still going to be here when I come back in 12 hrs? I had no idea...just depends...
Yes, I was...lol! It was kind of funny, to greet him... no big winnings though, a few hundredish... just grinded it out.
The longest session I had is probably one of the more hilarious to many. Poker is played among certain echelons of politics. I have a family that allowed me into certain doors and I used to use it for a few issues I find important. There was a bit of legislation being written that I wanted to be better than I was hearing it would be. So, I made some calls and got told about a poker session that was going to be held that was also a time to talk about the stuff going in the bill.
So, I got to the session on Friday afternoon. We had food brought to us, literally had a smoke filled room after, and it turned into about 40 hours of poker, a discussion that bordered on arguments, and barely able to stand after. It was fun and productive. Sadly, only a few of the concerns I went there to get discussed made it in, but I helped with that. I also came away with more money than I showed up with.
