So at what point do you walk away? I am sitting at a 25nl table with a little over 3x the max buyin. I am actually about even for the night . When do you guys pick up? Any set rule to the amount of money you are holding at the table? Should I be picking up and moving to another table at this point? Thanks for the advice
Depends. Some ppl like playing deep some don't. If you think you have an edge on the other players who are deep then you might as well play deep unless the amount of money you are dealing with becomes scared money. Deeper you play the bigger your advantage if you are good postflop. Whether or not you move tables should have more to do with the quality of players at your table and your position rather than how deep you are.

If I triple my money, boy you better believe i'm taking a break. I'm not going to wait for my cards or seat to go cold..I'll hop along down the road first...I set a limit of 1 hour or triple up at a cash game

re: Poker & walk away?
A lot of people like hopping tables, but if your opponents are not leaving and you have a good read on them...stick around until you start losing nad then leave before you get back to even. If your opponents leave, then if you triple up, leave and put the money back into your account and join another table for what you joined the first one with.

Walk away when you need to attend to something else going on in your life or when you feel you no longer have the advantage at the table. If you're making better decisions than the other people at the table having extra chips in front of you is a good thing. If you aren't, it's time to leave no matter what.
