I played about 6 hours in the tournament. It's a long time for me, so I like playing Sit & Go or turbo-tournaments.

I played in tournaments than 10 hours because I like tournaments slow.
the more tournaments are faster the lower the chance of winning.
You need to have a lot of patience , otherwise you have not to play in tournaments

Yep slower is better. Also longer. Much much much much much longer LOL. Played 12+ hours once and yeah felt sick. 5 minute breaks are barely long enough to get to the bathroom and back never mind clear your head. I'll do it again soon though haha!

hello all...i was wondering about your highest time for a tournament ...
yesterday i played about 6 hours and i feel sick
good luck to all


18 hours live.

Not good to get sick. You are not drinking enough fluids and what did you eat that whole time? Just potato chips?

On breaks you should get up and move around.

Good luck !

I managed to ship a $1,10 MTT back in july, that took 6.4 hours from start to finish... it was long but i could have gone longer, I also managed to cook tea in that time as well.

usually between 6 and 8 hours to get a good placement this in a very normal daily grind routine

Choose the number of tournaments that will give you a sense of pleasure! When you overload the brain with the number of tournaments, the quality is lost!

My longest tourney was in the ChampionChips of 888. It was a deep stack tourney and it lasted 9 hours. I finished it around 6 o'clock in the morning. I was bushed, but I was happy because of this result:

Altough, I have to admit, that I fell asleep some during the game and waked up, when I had 3 blinds left with 77. :eek:
But somehow I managed to come back. :D

Hello, my biggest tournament was almost 7 hours, a free tournament with 15000 people and luckily I finished among the best 3. But it was very long and I ended up with a very tired sight and just wanted to sleep hahaha .. Greetings

Right now most of my tournaments are 2-3 hours because that's about how long I can last mentally but the longest one I've played has been about 5 hours.

I have done about 14 hours. That was exhausting. The payout was nice.

And obviously this is referring to total tournament length as opposed to sessions which can go on a lot longer! Also some of the ones that I have played have started as a satellite that have run straight into the tournament with the satellite being a few hours. A break would be nice sometimes.

I don’t remember for a long time that I wasn’t at the final tables, but when I was at the final table it’s over 7 hours of play and it’s really hard.

There was one tournament I played that last for about 6 hours, but there was also a time when I played longer, ie. two Freeroll tournaments in a row and some cash games. I don't have much time during the day to play as long, but it happens.

when it is possible to go very far with levels of 10 minutes, then about 8 hours.
