Is there anything as too much Poker?
Does anybody set limits on how much to play?
Does playing a lot of poker make you better or in some cases Cynical?
Feel free to answer to any of these questions...
Too much poker? Don't think there is such a thing. Too much poker in a row? Probably but I don't think I've come close to doing it.
Limits? Basically how much my life lets me. I have classes, baseball, and I know how much sleep I need. Those set enough limits.
Don't see how playing a lot of poker could make me cynical but it depends on the mindset. If I'm prepared and playing good poker, whether I win or lose money I'm concentrating on playing well and will probably learn a thing or two. If I just got up, not really thinking about it, kinda tired and hungry, not really paying attention, it's not going to make me better. I don't think I've ever played in that state. Always important to prepare well for a poker session, even if it's just a few minutes to get your mind in the right state, and if you're physically and mentally tired from other things, you probably shouldn't play.
