It seems to me that when you are in good positions at the table (that is, you won some of the chips or money), then you need to leave this table, especially if there is a player with similar money, so as not to lose at a time the stack that was not going to initially to take risks.
I think it's right, because I got into such situations and lost profits in the future.
Well if you have won money at the table, hopefully its due to great table selection and solid play- and if that is the case you shouldnt leave unless something has changed, like a fish leaves or a shark shows up.
But also having someone with a stack similar to yours in that situation can mean a full double up again. You just need to adjust a bit your game against that player.
At any time you risking profit, but I don't know how people manage this, like... You sit at a table with XX, at what point you take the profit and start on another table?
The only time I would leave a game is if I feel that for whatever reason, the game is no longer profitable. Either a poor player leaves, good player comes in, my focus or play is compromised for some reason. Do not fear losing just because you are winning.
if you feel fear after a good victory, then it's better to leave the table and maybe stop in the game for today, the feeling of fear will not let you correctly act in different situations, take a break and spend this time to analyze your game. And when you understand why and how you won - go back boldly.
I agree with you, if you are a beginning player just like me and this is struggling and studying to build a bankroll. Another day playing NL0,05 / 0,10 I came across a situation similar to yours, I opened the table with $ 10, I managed to make $ 48, I was pretty finding myself the maximum, suddenly I get involved in a hand with the village, I flush in A on the flop the villager goes allin with $ 68 and I call believing he was going to win, the villager was with two pairs on the flop, doubled a card and he did full winning a nice pot. Until today I cry when I remember and I fight not to happen again.
you are right to leave a table after won an amount defeined by yourself. I've often seen players winning a lot and then loosing until their buyin was nearly complete lost. this happened to me also, so I play a bit after won some money and then I leave the table
