good job sherm, definately a good idea to take a break and leave a winner, you made $15.00 an hour (not bad)
Good job Sherm, I rarely play more than an hour or so a day myself which is why the big tournies don't interest me that much. I may put in 3-4 hours over a whole weekend but not that often and you have to know when to get up...
very good sherm, go to bed ,take a rest LOL, poker can be very tiring if you play 5 or 6 hours straight, i get tired after 2 or 3 hours now, to go to the WSOP and play 12 hours a day for 6 or 7 days, well, it would kill me, LOL, im just to old for them long stretches of poker now. I have to be feeling real good to play for a few hours now. good job.
Never fails to suprise me just how tiring playing solidly for a few hours can get you - im thinking more a 2-3 hr tourney here.
But then again usually if you have been playing that long you must have been doing ok as otherwise it would have been a lot shorter time
* That made sense when i thought it - not sure when i see it written down - lol

nice job sherm. Understand being tired. I play in two tourneys on fridays and sometimes two on saturdays and by the time im done i am exhausted. Surprising how much of a mental drain it is playing poker.

Good job Sherm, Koodos, you are the expert player I can see. Get that well deserved rest and hope to see you online sometime. Sometimes I make the mistake of playing when I'm tired just because I'm hooked on playing and boy I can tell the difference in my play when I'm tired vs. when I'm alert and playing solid.
