sitting out when you're way ahead (bankroll management question)
I've read up on a lot of the fundamentals of bankroll management, but never really understood one part of it that pertains to stopping a session or leaving a table when you're way ahead.
In Chris Ferguson's challenge
, he suggests leaving the table of a cash game session if the money on the table represents more than 10% of your total bankroll. I've also noticed that some of the stop-loss software out there have features that alerts you to stop when you win a certain # of bb's in one session.
The only time this makes sense to me is if there are other people at the table who are also very
deeply stacked -- because then you could risk losing it all in one hand. But otherwise as long as you're actually playing well (& not just on a lucky streak), why not keep going?
