What's up guys? I was just wondering how you spend your 5 min. breaks. Eat? Smoke? Nap? Or run around real quick and be back before it starts?

if i lost the last hand before break i love the fact that carbon lets you stare at the board for 5 minutes just to needle you. So i do that.

I walk aroundand get something to eat/drink, sitting in front of the computer is no good for more then a few hours max for me without stretching my legs.

Always move away from the computer to rest eyes, no matter what I do during these 5 minutes. It is important not to look at the monitor.

On first break I make a sandwich and something to drink, on second break (usually then bubble pops) I grab a beer to enjoy final stages of tourney.

I usually analyze past plays by opponents at my table, take note of stack sizes and formulate a game plan. Plus, I notice sometimes that players will chat with each other about hands that were played and sometimes I get some info based on their discussion.

Same here, cig, bathroom, food and drink. I think I may change it up, and try to do something to stay focused on the tournament. Maybe breathing excersises, or a little bit of cardio.

lmao, I thought I was the only one, hurts more if you f'd up too, its all like hey remember 3 minutes ago when you lost half your stack?

Depending on which break it is, I usually stretch, grab a snack, refill my drink, stare at the screen, whatever I fell I need the most.

Seriously? You can't do that during the game? Do you keep an empty bottle close by? Lol

I always try to do something that does not tolerate time. This can be a dinner, his cooking or toilet. All that can invest in 5 minutes. And when I play I can clean vegetables for cooking.
