This is a discussion on What do you do during a 5 minute break within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I run outside during my break and smoke half a cigarette
I think a lot of players do that
It's amazing what can be done in 5 minutes. I have gotten very good at time management for this. LOL. When I see the clock at ten mins to the hour, I start deciding in my head what needs to be done. Then see if I am in or out of the last hand and will pre fold if necessary so I can get an extra minute or two.
So usually consists of a bathroom break, feeding the cat, making something quick to eat and checking email/fb and checking to see what tourneys are coming up next.
Yeah I do that too. I share a place with many people. So sometimes it gets hard to smoke. Then you canned out of a tourny quick sometimes you usually go on a boag until next tourny. The trick is don't inhale down throat.
when I smoked I did the same thing hahaha. Now I take the opportunity to go to the bathroom, stretch my legs, eat something, touch my cell phone and etc. In order not to be just 100% in the game, I take the 5 minutes to distract a little from the game.
Basically, a five-minute break for me is the time to smoke. But sometimes, if I play for a long time, I make tea and some sandwiches. Unfortunately, during this time it is impossible to do anything more)))
I usually manage to cook something to eat (noodles or some kind of porridge that cooks quickly). While cooked, i add different kinds of dried fruits and seeds. I pour very little water and it is completely absorbed in these few minutes of cooking. Then i add tomato paste.
And i start eating already during the game ))
I am not a cat! I am human! ))
My five minutes I use it mainly for a quick cigarette and a little digging in the phone. At other times, depending on how the game goes, blinds, my stack I pay attention to the child. Sometimes I look at important hands and make conclusions and notes.
About the same write a couple other people said. I start preparing about five minutes till. And just maybe might have time to go to the bathroom. And maybe get some to munch on and roll a Doobie. You get what I’m saying big fatty
