Funny, it's a lot harder for me to get up and go at a casino. After all, I've had to drive 3 hours to get there. To combat that feeling, I now try to stay at least a couple of days so I fell OK chilling out then coming back fresh.
Online, when I start yelling stuff like "you gotta be kidding!" after a beat, I know it's time to take a break. No, I don't type it in chat, but if even the impulse
to yell it at home comes up... It's not the beat that forces this as sometimes I can take a lot of beats without feeling bad. It's recognizing my emotional state has deteriorated. If I feel like yelling, I'm tilting.
If I were to set a particular number of hours to play, and went on tilt somewhere in there, I'd be broke over and over.
