well ... there are several reasons to take a break ... one of them is because of fatigue ... if you have been playing for many hours and you start to feel tired, it is best to stop ... and another reason is to have a bad streak and you're losing ...

I would say at least after 3 hours, get up take a break have a good stretching session to get the blood flowing back into your brain.
Unless you’re on a heater of course, then keep going as long as it lasts :)

I think this goes for everyone. Went you been card dead for hours and gone on a tilt for several games. It's that time to get up and take a break from the game for days or even weeks. That's went I go back to the books and study hands I've played wrong.

If you play 4 hours a day or more, it is advisable to take a break for 10-15 minutes every hour and a half, unless, of course, you are participating in the tournament at that moment. As for the cache specifically, do not try to quickly recoup after a series of stack losses by making rash actions. Take an hour-two break. It will help you save your money, time and nerves.

the main reason is fatigue, get up and do something else for a short time, get distracted, let your brain rest, the second reason if you are unlucky and the card does not go, you also need to pause so as not to do something stupid

Well, if you are tired, or if you are busy doing other things, when you are upset when you are on tilt there are several times when it is good to rest a little

Usually take a break if you lose more than two buy-ins, but if the game is going great and has the double up, also there is a sense of play and atrocity win, I don't cache the player, but happens when you play cash, win a couple of stacks a plus, also it all depends on the number of playing tables, if 6 or more, then you need to set individual time limits

If I have played steady for 3 hours with no break I will try to take like 15 mins to half an hour away from the tables just to revitalise and keep my brain focused

Good luck out there

Hello. I try to last for break time. The 4 to 5 minutes usually give me enough time to do and get.

In any case, when you have a desire to recoup and a desire to eliminate losses.

Everyone's tips are good, but do not apply to mtt, these stops should be limited to 5 minutes of break, those moments should be well used and we have to do the physiological needs and rest your head without losing focus. Difficult.

Number one reason is that I have to run to the washroom. Number two reason is that I have lost all my chips.

At the breaks of 5 minutes is a time where you can leave the game for a while and sometimes it takes more if it is necessary!

is a question for the cash player of course, you can stop your gaming session when you feel tired or stressed, also when variance or luck is not on your side that day, so you avoid losing money One thing you can do is comply with a daily game discipline such as: the chip boxes set a daily reload limit the rule of 3 boxes per open tables if you play online according to your bankroll. Speaking of resting per session, you have to set a schedule of your game hours a day, a limit also if you want to do 2 sessions a day it is to your liking.

Before you get overwhelmed or extremely tired of the game.

I like to play for 2 hours--3 at most--so most of the freerolls are too long for me if I am doing well in them

If someone is getting lucky and i'm not I take a break to break the cycle. When I take most people's money and i'm chip leader. I take a break to psychologically break my opponents down even more, since I know they want their chips back they are going to have to wait for them, and when I come back I fold fold fold fold fold to see their faces. and when I start betting they know I have something but still want their chips back so end up giving away more trying to risk it.
