"Come on clock… run f***in' faster!"
So said Shawn Sheikhan just now as he walked around near his table after having folded a hand. "I hear you," said Hassan Mechammil from the neighboring table, who had also stood up from his chair. "I'm tired," added Mechammil.
The clock right now is showing about 40 minutes to go in this last level of the night, with the number of players remaining presently sitting at 253.
Sheikhan and Mechammil likely aren't the only ones feeling fatigue at the end of a fourth long and intense day of poker, but with the stakes rising the further the tournament goes, the ability to concentrate and withstand tiredness becomes ever more important.
