I confess that I like quick poker games and that very long games affect my performance, when the game is too long I usually get tired and sometimes stop paying attention to the game which makes my opponents easier.
I don't have such problems , my concentration and my attention span can last for hours but I can't do that everyday , I can't play everyday because it's exhausting.
I like fast games too -turbos and hypers - but let's be honest here if you have skill you prove it in the regular speed games . There is so much variance involved in the fast paced ones , there is plenty of strategy in them too but you need to win way more flips in order to win them.
Yes, I have the same thing, I can't play poker for a long time, I play well for a maximum of 3-4 hours, then I start making a lot of mistakes.
I start playing too many hands, I start calling bets where I need to fold, for some reason it often seems to me that the opponent is bluffing and I call with a weak hand and naturally lose, in general, a typical game with a loss of concentration.
How long you can play with maximum concentration directly depends on your physical health !!! It is also important to plan your day so that you have a good rest before starting a long gaming session !!!
I play MMT at micro stakes, purely as a student. I play with long breaks, but here I was sick for several days and I had enough time to play for several hours a day. I have enough for a maximum of 3 hours of the tournament, then mistakes start, stack drain. Although I almost always enter the prizes, they are still too small due to the fact that I still lack sufficient concentration and energy.
Too many hours playing, I get impatient at the end.
Good morning everybody. Playing poker for many hours affects my performance, especially patience at the end of the grinde, I usually play hands that I shouldn't, I take more chances in Mtts or I gain chips very fast or I eliminate and most of the time I use this strategy I get eliminated .
I have noticed that the more I play, the longer it takes for me to get tired, I remember when I started at the end of 2018, I played 4 or 5 hours and I got tired, today for me to get tired I have to play for 10 hours, you will getting used to it and getting tougher.
I saw a live on twitch the guy played for 35 hours and on his last table he was at the final table of a Mtt K.O, that's patience, I want to get to that level.
I never play poker for more than 6-7 hours. I believe that the game should be fun and not tiring. If I feel tired, I don't even start playing because I don't see the point in such a game.
