This is a discussion on what is the longest tournament you have played and for how long. within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; my longest tournament was a 10k Sunday with 25,000 players and by the time I left I was playing for 7.00 hours and still had
Wsop 2009. $1000 buy in. Day 1 started at 1230pm ended at 230am. I was exhausted. I was able to win an all in for my tournament life with K8 against 22. I hit a K on flop and he never improved. Was blind vs blind. Was able to cash the next day before busting out but it is the only event that I have ever played because it was so physically and mentally taxing on me.
A long time ago I played a tournament that went over 14 hours. I have to admit though that I shy away from the longer ones. Not sure I have the stamina for them any more, not that I ever actually did. I recall snoozing on my keyboard between hands.
re: Poker & what is the longest tournament you have played and for how long.
If we are talking about mutli day tournaments i Played at the hard rock and played 12 hours the first day and 5 hours the next day which was my longest. I wound up finishing 58th out of 1958 runners.. continiously was 13 hours.. and i came in 6th out of 108 runners. it was a fun grind got done just in time to go to breakfast!!
Interesting question - when I first started playing I entered a MOSS 0.55 buyin event on ACR.
The number of players was something like 6000 if my memory is correct but what I remember most is that the late registration period lasted for SIX hours.
It was excruciating!!
I played for 12 hours - and this was when I had only been playing poker for about 2 months, so it was abnormally long for what I had been used to. At that point I had final tabled a couple of those online $10gtd freerolls ACR runs, and those go for about 3-4 hours, but 12 hours was quite long for me.
I ended up placing in the top 120. I think 108, it was pretty long for such a novice.

Agree - wish they'd shorten the late registration period of ALL tourneys.

Are these super long online tourneys any different for breaks - compared to common (every day) tourneys - that give everyone a WHOPPING 5 minute break every 1 hour? Sometimes we have to do things that take more than 5 minutes!
I wonder how the Venom tourney on ACR is structured for breaks/lunch/dinner. Seems very tight to only give 5 minute breaks for such a LONG multi-day tourney.

Luve how are the breaks and lunch/dinners structured for these multi-day live events? From watching poker vlogs - I surmise there are 15 minute breaks ever so often (how often), and a dinner break (how long is that)?
