Gabriel Sayegh - Poker Sage
Gabriel Sayegh (Brooklyn, NY) was up to ~600k before the redraw.
He said something that really hit home. "This is the only thing I can do for 12 hours and want to keep doing it...including sleep."
I guess a lot of people agree with him, since they keep turning up for these marathon one day events.
These guys have now been playing for 12 hours and they want to keep doing it because there's a $15,044 prize waiting for someone at the finish line.
