If I remember correctly it was about 10 hours long. It was on a site called Lock Poker back in the day.

I would say my max is around 10 hours - I will usually grind 4 to 6 hours per session.

I've played five hours many a time. If you are there six hours you are well in the money, probably the final table.

Time Value Money

Tournament time, effective play: 2 hours. After that, concentration declines, play declines. Pray for good cards to bail me out. Value, better prize, 3 hours, done a lot of times.
Money: have played 6 hours straight, to finish at the final table.

The longest was 7 hours at pokerstars when I was a beginner.
Recently, I have been careful not to play for a long time in one tournament.

I have played for 5 hours straight, but I try not to play that long anymore. Nowadays, I usually just play in smaller tourneys, approx. 2 hours.

3~4 hours are suit for me.

I had ever played more than 5 hours, but really dislike that.

almost 8 hours and just win $0.03 super sad life :(

Not really that sad; you got invaluable experience and you made a profit :)

The maximum is four hours. Of course with some breaks for rest or eat something!!:)
I utilize my breaks too :cool:

5 ours I played tournament that I won..
Congratulations! :) My first ever poker tournament where I could win money was the cardschat 30 Day Course Freeroll and several hours into it, I also found myself at the Final Table...and then eventually the last player left...yup, I won 1st place in my 1st ever event :)

Went 13 hours once, and every time I make it to the end of an ACR late reg period I get flashbacks.
Wow, didn't know one could get PTSD from poker :D

I have done about 14 hours. That was exhausting. The payout was nice.
At least the payout was nice; tough to spend this long and break even, or worse, even lose money!

Sounds like you did well :)

It was like 8 hours in a row playing, I remember that I made the most of the breaks, a lot of coffee to keep me active and continue.:eek:

Funny because I use coffee more often in my regular freerolls than the longer events, but then again, I don't usually use coffee to stay awake ;)

3~4 hours are suit for me.

3-4 hours is a good time frame, but I'd probably be more willing than most to continue playing longer :p

p.s. cardschat had an error loading when I tried to post originally and so I copy and pasted my responses into a Microsoft Word document to post on here later.

At least it had no loading issues now, but the cardschat emojis now incorrectly formatted with brackets and other coding lol - at least it is mostly here :D
