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

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!
