When to Quit

Postby Enuenated » Sat Sep 02, 2006 6:13 pm

Quitting at this point is to prevent fatigue. Once you get tired you will start making mistakes that you would not otherwise make when you are fresh. There are some clear signs that suggest it is time to stop. First of all you start getting hit by a wave of paranoia and begin to think you opponents are always bluffing. Also you should quit when you actually really want to. Some people play because they think they need to keep playing, not because they want to keep playing. When you begin thinking one hand ahead and looking past what is going on, this is also a clue it is time to stop.

When you suffer 3 horrible bad beats its time to call it a day, smart one would do that after first one, but I am dumb!

There are many reasons for leaving a game.  Naturally, you leave when you think you're too tired to play effectively.  You leave if you're ahead, cash wise, and don't want to risk losing what you made.  Last but not least, you leave when you're losing, to cut down on further losses.

I quit whenever I double what I had when I started or, When i lost about 30 percent of what I had when I started. But it is hard to quit so you have ot have real good control over yourself if you are losing and winning sometimes.

I agree with you how important it can be to step away from the game every once in a while.  If you're going through a really rough stretch, and begin to question your decision process, or have no faith in your abilities to win, the best thing to do is take a day or two off.

Not only will you come back refreshed, but you'll enjoy playing much more.

Rarely Get bored just frustrated

Postby Uselp1969 » Sat Sep 30, 2006 4:54 pm

When playing poker there are so many aspects to the game I very rarely get bored i just get frustrated and that is terrible for my game. When I start to play catch up poker I know it is time to quit although just b/c i know its time doesn't mean i do. And most generally this is when i lose the most money.

how about when you get real close and just cant get it done
the frustration builds
you start reworking things and abandon the things you need to win

I think a day or 2 away is helpful. Especially when your getting sukked out all the time by donks with A-3 !! When it gets to the point you have A-K against A-8 ALL IN and you announce to the table ," here comes the 8 on the river." And sure enough it does it,s time to quit. Attitude gets so negative you start to expect the sukkout and think how i,m i going lose this time !!!

Quitting with AK

Postby Rupothe » Sat Sep 30, 2006 6:41 pm

Best advice I have heard about AK is raise it up pre-flop and bet every round until someone else takes the lead (assuming you don't hit a pair) any comments?
