I have had over a month break from poker. Mainly because we had family staying with us for a while and Iv been working loooooong hours. I am getting back in to my poker starting tonight though and I will be interested to see if a break does my play good or bad.
Anybody ever just take a month or two off from poker to do other things. Is there anybody who has took a break from poker and found it did there game good/bad.
Yes, I've taken breaks during busy seasons, but find if anything I'm a little rusty when I return. I'll be taking about a month off at the end of summer, so I had better build my bankroll a bit before hand. I'll try to catch you at the tables.

A few days, maybe a week. I always had a better attitude when I returned, but no noticeable difference in results.

I went to basic training which is a little over 2 months, and obviously couldn;t play lol. But when I got to technical school for my job I could. The break was very good and I netted almosted 2k$ in 2 months from those 8$ 150 mans on FT and also remember making two final tables at once and winning both for 360$ each!
breaks are the nuts!

I usually stay in contact with CC, but I stop playing poker for up to two weeks at a time, don't really see a change in my game, the correct play in tournament is very automatic for me.

I have taken breaks a ton of times. Months, sometimes weeks at a time. It has always done really well for me.
If i play to many games, i notice i become to loose and lose the ability to read people.
