10 Good Reasons to Leave the Poker Table Part 1

Posted on: April 17, 2019

Poker is a fun and challenging game to play; put it on a gambling table, and it changes everything. Because of its nature, Poker is easily one of the most addictive games out there, and sometimes players just can’t discern when to leave the table.

So, to help our dear patrons out there, we are writing a three-part series that can serve as alarm bells to signal it is time to get up and call it a day.

1. Out of cash
This is one of the most obvious reasons that players fail to acknowledge; because of this, many are trapped in debt. Players often think that they can always turn the tide around and they need just a few more chances. When this mentality kicks in, it is hard to get out of it. Starting it off from borrowing a $100, eventually, it becomes a $1,000, and before they know it, they have pawned their car for a game.

Do not a few hundred dollars of losses lead you into this wormhole. If you already lost the money you intend to play with, it is best to get up and try another day again when you have the money for it.

2. The game has gone south
With poker, you never know how a round is going to turn out, and sometimes your first game is as bad as it can get. But there are those days that you can feel luck overflowing because you’ve been winning all four straight rounds and players seem to change every hour in the past three hours and yet you remained unbeatable.

Then suddenly, one chair is vacant, later it became two, and you waited for joiners, but there’s just nobody up for it. Instead of wasting your time waiting for something that might not arrive, why not take your winnings and enjoy the rest of the evening?

We all love excitement and adrenaline, but when the game has run out of adventures to throw at you, it is not a bad idea to get up and find amusement somewhere else.

3. Responsibilities knocked
Poker is an excellent activity to pass the time or leisure. It’s a great way to bond with friends, distress, and challenge yourself, but sometimes an unseen circumstance will present itself the least players expect it.

Incidents like an emergency at home or you remembered you left the toaster plugged are only a few of the things that a player should not neglect. No game should be more important than family, and no bet should be more important than losing a home or a car.

As a responsible adult, players should be able to determine their priorities even when they are enjoying a game.
