My longest one, as far as I remember, lasted between 8 and 9 hours. At that time, I took second place.

If you're ready to play poker, then know that poker tournaments last about 8 hours or 9 in one day and 2 days go on until you beat all the players or stay alone at the table. If you're not ready to play so many hours of tournaments or don't have time, it's best to play quick tournaments or spins then you will definitely save your time and money I play an average of 5-8 hours in tournaments

Once I made it to the final table of the $3.30 Knockout Tournament, it was over 8 hours into the tournament! :)🛏️To play long tournaments, I only start when I'm really well rested!

What long was your longest tournament in poker? I can't bear the long tournament.I will be deconcentrated.
My longest tournament lasted about 6-7 hours. It was a two day tournament on pokerstars and I even managed to make it to the next day.

I don't remember for sure, usually the tournaments I play last from 4 to 6 hours max.
But there was one time in which I played a freeroll on ACR with a slow structure, and from thousands of players, only 70 would be paid, and after almost 7 hours playing I was the bubble boy after gatting my aces cracked by a JTs from the chip leader.
I got really mad that day :ROFLMAO:
From this day forward I decided that I would never play slow tournaments with only a few prizes anymore.

My longest tournament lasted about 6 hours and I was really tired. But I managed to win about $320. It was the Sunday tournament on PokerStars.

That's the power of knowing starting hands.

80+ year Doyle Brunsen wasn't playing every hand or lots of hands every day of a multi day tourn.

It takes a lot less energy if you're selective.

The staying focused stuff/method is for you to develop.

But for me, if I don't want to play a tourn any longer because ppl are being silly or they don't have a clue what they're doing then I set my goals and soon as i reach them then I'm gone.

Back in the day when United States played on full tilt, I played in a huge invite only qualifier mtt and got 3rd or so. Lasted 12 hours or so with breaks included. I think it was knockout feature so it was a lot of waiting for all tables to finish especially after the top 64

My longest tournament lasted about 6-7 hours. I was very tired and towards the end I started making hasty and rash decisions. A head start would have helped me a lot, but unfortunately I ended the tournament early......even though I won about $180.

The longest tournament I had was a 7 hour tournament. And I haven't got to the last table yet. But the prize is not big, but I won.

my longest tournament lasted 8 hours and it wasn't the final table yet, I don't like such long tournaments, after such a time you just get bored and start playing less responsibly

Play in the right state: no fatigue, alcohol or bad mood, perseverance and taking travel calmly, that’s all you need in long tournaments.

My longest tournament was probably about 5-6 hours. It truly is exhausting without proper preparation and some kind of breaks/distractions for a little. By the end, I was already feeling like I wanted it to end and thus started to make desicions I wouldn't have made if it was at the beginning of the tournament

I don’t know about one particular tournament, maybe 5 hours, no more, but each of my sessions lasts at least 6-8 hours (this may sound strange for cash players, but for MTT players it is a common story), in essence it is one tournament, because you are focused on the game and always try to make quality decisions - just at different tables:D:D
