Howdo ,
just wanted to make a quick thread to congratulate Yout on his successfull 24 hr str challange.

Im more a mtt player and I like the big tourneys 5k runners + and have been lucky enough to FT a few of theese. It can take upto 9 hrs for theese games and after them I feel fried, and the thought of playing again for at least 24hrs would be agony. So basically the idea of playing 24 hrs staraight to me sounds impossible and the achievment of being able to play 24hrs strt and keep that ITM% up over 17% consistantley (up to 30% for early part ) is mind boggling!

Congratulations again Yout, you are an example to everyone for your discipline and heart.

also quick mention for whoever guessed the ITM% correct........ I feel a bit bad now only going for 12.5%............

Yeah, the longest I've played poker for is 10.5hours and that was when i won over 5k in a tourney and i was absolutely knackered. Couldn't get to my bed fast enough.
So he definitely deserves massive respect for this one Worship Worship Worship Worship

Thanks a lot guys Smile

Strangely, I feel like I could carry on for a couple more hours... but I won't.

Final results:

Played for 24 hours 57 minutes
Played 236 tournaments
Cashed in 49 tournaments
ITM of 20.76%
Increased bankroll by $13.68

Congratulations to cofacosmin who guessed 21% - so close to being spot on Smile Please let me know your PokerStars screen name and I'll get the $10 to you.

And unlucky to Mysik86 who guessed 20.1% If I hadn't riverred a straight flush in one of the last tournies near the bubble you would have won by being 0.14% closer than cofacosmin.

Thanks again to everyone who took part - expect another challenge next weekend - any suggestions will be welcome Smile

Now...... to bed Smile

Yeah, I wouldn't be able to do this! I have played for I think 15 hours ONES and then I had a few breaks for up to half an hour so to constantly play for 24 hours is just not an option for me, I would never even consider doing that. Great achievement!

I feel really bad, that I gave only 7.87 %. I knew I should give more %. Yout85, congratulations for your amazing 24 hours playing. I can't do this, playing so long at so many tournaments.

I can play at only one tournament during 10 hours maximum. You did it great! Smile You are the pride of BRM site!

Have a nice sleep! Sweet dreams. Smile
