Scott Seiver’s Marathon Session

American poker pro Scott Seiver flaunted on Twitter about his hardcore grind at the cash game tables - the announcement caught the attention of Chicago Joey too.

Seiver is coming off of a successful WSOP this summer - he managed to get himself his second bracelet in the $10K Limit Hold’em event; on top of that the 33-year-old cardplayer cashed three more times at the World Series. But apparently all that success did not sate his appetite for the game since he announced on Twitter that he completed a 32-hour session at the poker table.

While the 32-hour grind is impressive, it falls short of the world record which was set by Phil Laak in 2010. Laak played for 115 hours straight. Admirably, he managed to end the insane, almost 5-day long marathon $4,000 in profit, playing $10/$20 NLHE.

So while Seiver’s 32-hour session is far from being unprecedented, it did catch the attention of Joe Ingram who replied to Seiver’s tweet writing Very GTO decision not to sleep at the table (maybe you did that at some point during the session tho)”.

Falling asleep at the poker table may sound outlandish at first glance, it can happen even to the very best players out there - the $5K/$10K stakes didn’t seem to be exciting enough to keep Daniel “Jungleman” Cates awake, as evidenced by Patrik Antonius’ Instagram post last month.

Seiver indicated in his Tweet that he’s planning on having another long cash game session, he did not follow up with any updates - we can only hope that his sessions were successful.
