I have seen that happen a couple of times and it is never talked about. It is a real phenomena possibly unique to OLP in how it plays out. Live games tend to have enough distractions around to keep the mind distracted rather than focusing on how tired it is as in a long OLP tourney.
Lesson is to be prepared like a Boy Scout to invest a long time to winning. Else buy a lotto ticket.
To your point, I have actually fallen asleep while playing in some of those games with never ending late registration. I once had over 1.5 mil in one game, woke up and found my computer had "gone to sleep" and I was down to less the 500k and short stacked.
Glad it was only a $5.50 buy in.
I like that 2.5K guarantee except that if you run deep it will keep you up til 3 or 4 AM, East Coast.
