Just woke up; still early and got chores done, but dragging myself to simply make coffee. No, not a bad night of poker, previously. Actually, a good night. Came in 4th place and I think that was super! Five, almost six hours of play in one tourney. I was tired, but so were others (good players, all of them!). Yes, I called it a day after that. How many hours should you play? As many as you can! I mean, there are Factors to think of and to apply to silent questions as you play. Time to quit!? When you are no longer attentive, alert and you are bored and yawning until your tonsils are showing. Stop and go to bed or go home and go to bed. There are other games and other days.

You know when you have had enough; lack of Discipline and Self-Control are not always Yielded Thereto. Focus, be attentive and alert and Follow these factors when they Leave the table! GOD bless you.
