Once again Ar-J has the definitive answer. Buy in for max - Do you go home or rebuy when that's gone? Be prepared to rebuy - It just depends on that table. If Asshanders came in and paid you a visit and your head is still spinning and you are not sure what the hell happened - then get out of there. If you know you had them by the balls and can play circles around them outside of occasional bad beats (which apparently just happened) then go rebuy.
I am constantly assessing the table - "I can out play that guy, that guy and that guy. Him? I need to avoid as much as possible. The guy in the hat? That's where my money's coming from." You have to check your ego to do this. #1 leak is thinking you are better than you are. Assume those guys are at least as good until proven otherwise.
