I think if the game/table is good then you should play as long as you can maintain your A game. That will differ from player to player, but any time you start feel a bit tilted or off in any way, I think taking a break and coming back is always good. If you already set yourself a limit than you should stick to it, or you might be tilting yourself by not following on your plan :)

Don't walk away when your up :) Keep on playing and take some more $ :D. It's much better to keep playing when your up and not down when you might be thrown off your game. I would only leave the table if I got tired or got really tilted after a string of bad luck.

I play low limits with one buy in at a time. If I go bust then I am done. If ever i hit a big hand or two, I take down a few pots, I look at my stack and say, "Damn I've done good tonight" I walk away. If I have a good amount of money on the table I walk away. I would rather walk away with a good win than have a good stack and play till I am in the hole.

I never give up! I never walk away.I believe and have faith on my cards so I wait till my cards come and go with no fear.

I try to set a limit of how much I would like to walk away with. I mean more is always better and if I’m doing good I stay and if I get back down to where I started it’s probably time to get up and find a new table hopefully with better luck.

Yes, I also had such moments when I set the time for playing the game cache and started to win, but later the card fell into the hands of good but did not play and I lost a lot, now if I win and if I start to play badly the card then I'm out of the game!

When you feel that the game goes back, just get up: D, no need to poison nerves when you made good money and their plus.

Lol that happens to me all the time. The trick is to leave when youre winning, as soon as you go down you should give up

Familiar situation. It's probably the hardest thing to leave in time. It is possible to say - professionalism.

It's not always easy to find a time to leave especially if you're running hot.

Try and ask yourself if you're feeling good and playing your A game, if not then try and find a good time to cash out.

if I don't walk away when I planned to, it seldom ends well. I think the best is to have a plan and stick to it....treat it like a business

If you are playing the A-game do not leave the room. Now if you are making the worst decisions it is best to take some time to rest.

play as long as the table is soft. TABLE SELECTION is key.

Enter with a buy-in, once you reach a predetermined profit be it 50%. or 100.. leave

I think it is probably easier for most people to quit when they are ahead than when they are down--trying to recoup lossed funds is a big problem for many players (and not only poker players)--i went through this phase in backgammon but managed to get over it thank goodness!

There is not one answer for this. It's up to you. However you should decide before you ever sit down. In my mind I know exactly when I am leaving before I ever see a card. Usually it's a double up or if I am there for a timed session then I have an hourly profit I am looking to hit. So you decide and be disciplined. If you cant be disciplined with getting up from the table when you pre-decided poker is not going to be a consistently profitable game.

Even if it's AA

I often fall such situation, too.

It shouldn't be not at its table by any means.

Even if You compare and have AA.

Yes, there are times when you lose with a stronger hand, it is doubly disappointing .. Personally, after losing more than half the money, I leave and take a break until the next day, otherwise I can go to pieces and bluff too much and I can lose everything. I agree, I need to train the discipline)

I usually leave when there are no more weak players at the table. Or when I double up my buy-in.
