When to quit and when to cash out
As a poker player you just know that when you're down during a particular session, or that the cards being dealt are gettin' colder than Kobe's wife
you know that you just have to pick it up and just get out. Even when Phil Ivey was coming up as a top professional, he would just get up and walk away after an 8-hour session and call it an evening -- his patience to walk away rather than just try to "break back even" showed an uncanny commitment to his trade...mainly because he knew that there were other days and other suckers ready to make money off of the next go-around.
Like playin' at a regular table, knowing when to walk and knowing when to cash out is all about "feel." When you're up and ridin' a great streak of cards or luck, or when you're playin' bluffs and semi-bluffs just right, you automatically should know that once that particular session is over do the right thing and cash out either all of it or a large percentage of it. If you're head isn't in the game, and you're not focused, you WILL lose money and you WILL lose consistently -- and then you'll have nothing to cash out, nor will you have anything left to play with. Every top player will encounter any and all of these situations...
