re: Poker & Is there such a thing as too much poker?
I know I can play too much. I begin to despise the game sometimes when I do. But the cards never change, only me.
Also if I am not exhausted after a poker session then I haven't tried hard enough. Often my motivation in tournaments is lasting until the breaks.
I find I outlast opponents whose aim is to be chip leader, or just get to the bubble, because whether there is 1, or 1,000 opponents left, I am still mentally and physically committed for lasting the next hour.
