When you've been playing poker for years, you often make beginner mistakes. What was the most fatal mistake you made? From your point of view, what would be the reason for that mistake?

I always make the mistake of going all in with pocket kings and losing, but recently i had A 10 and i lost to someone that only had pocket kings. I wanted the other ace so badly.

As for any ordinary non-professional player, it seems to me that oversaturation of the game of poker is superfluous. And as a result, excessive self-confidence in the game develops. Therefore, I think breaks in the game are necessary, you need to rest and be distracted from the game. Find some other main activity and play very little.

For me personally, if you play for more than 4 hours, mistakes are inevitable. Therefore, you need a rest from the sessions, at least a day!

I'm 61 and have played 17 years and I still make stupid mistakes. One of the main one's is to have touneys to play in the evening that are important to me, but I take on a long lasting MTT early, thinking I will be done and good and ready for the ones in the evening. Not going to happen. The first one takes everything out of me that I need to have for the later one's. I'm so tired I don't even want to see a deck of cards. So what happens? I play like I don't even care, and bust out pretty quick.

about 6 years ago, on the pre-final table of some serial tournament, I push K9 from the button, in response for my steal he 3bet from the big blind, the most common leak is underestimating the opponent, especially in deep stacks.

I made thousands of mistakes as a player, I was not aggressive enough or too aggressive at other times, but my biggest mistake was not checking my phone charge in the final stages of a tournament and staying out of the tournament being the chip leader.
