This is a discussion on how long have you been playing poker? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; what was the most hours you've played? I already played for 9 hours in a row!
I've been playing for 5 years, I learned when I grew up, I do it because I love this game, I admit that I would like to be able to dedicate more hours to it. with work and other things it becomes complicated for me.
Hi ands1000. I have been playing poker since 1999, which is about 22 years. I started playing at Party Poker. A lot of the post here reminds me of myself. I lost a lot, I tilted a lot, I played trash hands a lot just because I wanted to be in the action, and I didn't know what to do to become a good player. But I sure was willing to learn, and that's what I did. I asked many questions and got some great advice. Anyway, GL to you.

Since I started taking it more seriously, 12 years (more often) I think the longest tournament was when I qualified for the Sunday Million target tournament via satellite, after getting the ticket in satellite I was insert in the target tournament which had 25 minute blinds if I'm not mistaken then... I had a lot of coffee that day...
I first learned poker at a friend's house when I was a kid. His father owned a funeral home and they had a card table in the basement. He and I used to play quite a bit.
I never played again until I went off to college. I lived in a dormitory and there were always poker games going on. I finally joined in once and lost my buy in. It could have been one or two dollars.
In November of 2018 I started playing for play money on Replay Poker. Seven months later I put some money up to PokerStars and it was off to the races. It took me six weeks to lose it. I played for play money for a year on PokerStars and then put up some money to Neteller and have been playing on that ever since on 888 and PS, lately mostly 888.
I'm not a high level player but I'm a lot better than I used to be. It's a long march and I'm very patient.
The longest session I had was 15 hours and it was exhausting.
It happened because I entered in two satellites after playing tournaments for 5 hours already, but busted in most of them quickly and did not want to one-table. Eventually, I won one of the satellites, and had to jump in another tournament. Ironically, I had a deep run there, hence the length of the session.
Now, I never register to sats or tournaments after a certain point, because playing when you are tired is not fun, and actually quite minus EV

.I started watching tournaments on sports channels in 2008 and it caught my attention. Then I started looking for poker sites, I joined Pokerstar in 2009 and since that year I have been playing, I have taken 6 month breaks and then I go back
in internet ,I played not so long ,I think not more then 7 hours ,because I am a tight player and with the short blindes ,I come sometimes in the money ,but not on the final table ,life Iplayed more then 12 hours and life Backgammon is my record 29 Hours
I have been playing this excellent sport of poker for more than 6 years because since I was in school I saw an option to distract myself with an online game, but more than a game it became a way of life for me.
10 years ago I started playing poker. But seriously about 2 years ago. I did not pay attention to how many hours my longest session lasted, since in the most demanding moments I look for volume of hands, regardless of the duration.
