We're also very conscious of the fact that we have a lot of older players (like Doke and Mick Mc Closkey ) .
Oh the cheek

At the risk of sounding like the Grandad who insists on doing pressups every time you see him to prove he's still fit, I was running 24 hours until a few years ago, do still routinely do 16 hour online shifts, and I am in talks with a tourney promoter to do a two or three day endurance poker tourney with no sleep breaks (that is, it plays through to a finish with only a short break every 2 hours).

As for Mick, sure he's been known to alternate 14 hours in the poker room with 10 in the bar trying to cadge a free drink (it saves on hotel rooms)
