I haven't played a MTTs in the last few weeks. I can't even remember the last time I played. How many days have you been away from sports the longest?

The day when I get away from the poker is 2-about 3 days for me.

I haven't played from 2006 to 2020. As a result, I had to learn everything first.

I went about a decade without playing seriously. It makes for a different experience, especially when you go from higher stakes to micro and free.

I generally will let myself miss one or two non consecutive days a week of poker to get the feeling back of not making poker feel like a grind.

For a maximum of a week, I took a break to collect my thoughts and bring my state of mind to rest-to relax, so to speak.These breaks are necessary for players to see their mistakes, improve their health, and many other factors that affect the psychology of players.

My longest break lasted about two months. Sometimes I take breaks, but small, only for 2-3 days.

I have not played for several years, but sometimes I follow the big tournaments.

Hey, great question!

I've definitely gone many months without playing and always feel pretty rusty when I do.
I find reviewing a few videos before i start playing again tends to get my mind in the right head space, paying attention to and looking for the right things

Here's a great 12 video playlist on tournaments specifically, it always helps to get me back in the zone when I haven't played tournaments in a while - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBrNnyWekagPbegY51h0xW4tHOFKKn_DU

Hope you find it helpful, good luck and happy stackin on the tables! :angel:

I stopped playing online poker after Black Friday in 2011 and just started back up a few months ago.


Welcome back mate!

Maybe we can catch you in some of the ACR homegames!

The stormers have a great lineup with lots of giveaways typically

And here's a little league I'm running too - http://griipsed.com/venom
(1st place in the league is paying a $2650 venom ticket to the winner)

Super fun games with a super awesome community!

Feel free to come join us :)

The psychology of poker is to know the extent of the game and stop in time, there are black days when you are just losing, you need to take a break for 3-4 days, to comprehend everything and continue to play, luck will surely come.

You are a happy person! I rarely have breaks for more than a day or two. Tell us, how did you manage to achieve such happiness?
