edited to add that I'm playing for SA for your info
Just adding to Tania's answer for the third part in case you wanted more info, it was the longest set in history both in duration and number of games played, and set the record for both most games played in a single day (118) and longest gameplay on a single day being 7 hours and 6 minutes.
