I don't know what would make me stop playing a poker game, maybe a soccer game on my team
Same here? Sadly (or luckily) there's only 1 homegame in this calendar year left for my national team (as other 3 matches are on the road) so there's not too many "problems" for me in remaining months of 2019 to decide what to prefer lol ...
When you're dead. You dont know you're dead. It's only difficult and painful for others. The same applies when you're stupid.
When I'm in a SNG or a Freeroll, the game has been running for a while and supper time is near I'll start playing really loose to the point of going all-in with almost anything that I'd usually only raise with.
It never ends well but I don't like to be AFK for a while so I prefer to just give the chance to other players to reach a better position.
I would be forced not to play poker only some important and necessary thing, for example, housework or helping my wife with household chores or relaxing with family and close friends with a beer in nature!
I don't think I can stop playing what I do is manage my time to do everything I want, because by my profession I had to get away from the game and the forum but I already managed to balance my time to devote to the game and the forum and to support and help in what you can
Many different scenarios to that question.
Out with friends and the GF asked to leave, I stop.
In club and there is an obnoxious drunk playing, I would leave.
In a tournament only if a family emergency. and so on.
Often my tournament sessions are interrupted by the need to go to dinner at the table with my famil I dont know how to prove to them that I am very busy and this is more important than some kind of food
For me poker is hobby just like the other hobbies that i have like traveling, astro photography, normal photography, football games of my favorite local team, tourism and so on. I have limited finances and free time so i need to balance between them and i do it rather equally. sometimes poker game gets priority and in other cases it is left behind due to other activities.
