This is the last of the three-part series for the reasons to leave a poker table.
The remaining four items aim to take care of your physical and mental health on and off the table. To know what these are, read on.
7. Hunger kicks in
No matter how good the game you are playing, do not neglect your stomach. A lot of poker players suffer from hyperacidity and stomach ulcers because they refuse to get up and get food for a few hours.
While a good game is hard to come by, paying the hospital a visit may not be as fun. It is even more worrisome when you have to check-in the ward for a few days because your stomach refused the food that you are feeding it.
Keep in mind that health is wealth and your body is your best investment in the poker league.
8. Your anxiety paid a visit over not wanting to lose more money
It is always a great evening if you are winning, but the same cannot be said when you are losing. For some players, what they intended to be a relaxing time, just turned sour and became a losing streak.
They played, even more, trying to recover what they lost, unfortunately, since their mind is focused on not losing any more money, they are playing the worst hands and calling the easiest bluffs.
When your cash bandwidth falls, and you are below your intended budget, better to leave the game than suffer anxiety and lose more money.
9. You think about not losing your winnings
It has been a great evening, and your winning streaks are on a roll! But your mind starts playing games about people turning the tide on you.
When this thought fills your mind, do not be greedy. Stop and take your winnings. There is no rule in the game that stops winners from walking away and enjoying their fortune.
Leaving the table is the best call of action instead of sitting on a table thinking about not losing your winnings. The fun stops when your anxiety starts knocking on the door.
10. You’re drunk
A few drinks while in the game is fun. But having too many beers and staying a little longer than usual might not be a good idea.
When people are intoxicated by alcohol, they do not think straight. And since poker is a game of nerves and brains, you are losing on both ends.
When you start feeling a little bit tipsier than you would usually feel, be sure to call in your buddy to police you that you should head home after the round you are currently playing.
By leaving the poker table, you do not only make yourself safe, but you also help maintain a safe environment for other players.
