After every hour there is a break, at my pace of play that affects me because even when I am understanding the type of play of the opponents at my table, that break makes me lose focus and return to collect new data because in the end some players come back with another way of playing, I put it in consideration of you, good or bad break.

for me is totally necessary, to go to bethroom, or even to refresh the mind and make new strategies.

I can't believe that this question was even asked, Of course we need the breaks, if you lose focus during the break it means that you need to work on your game, the breaks will always be there. Game play often changes after the breaks.

Definitely need the five minute break. A chance to go to bathroom if necessary, grab a drink/snack, and just to get up and move around for a few minutes. Imagine playing a 9 hour tournament without a break!

Good question . For me, 5 minutes is very little, since I need to be in time for everything and put the kettle on and eat quickly and go wash. It would be much better if the break was 10 minutes:)

This interval is essential. Both to go to the bathroom and to get something to eat. Mainly in long tournaments.
I prefer the 5 minute break to letting sitting out and risking missing an AA or KK.

For me it is perfect, I like when the break begins to count when the action is finished in all the tables, another option could be the first break of 10 minutes after 2 hours, but I think it is fine how the breaks are handled:jd4::jd4::jd4::jd4:

In general, for beginners, a normal poker session should be around 1-2 hours. If you are a professional gambler, then it can vary from 2 to 8 hours, but at the same time with short breaks to satisfy physical needs.

Learn to control the situation-well, a break is necessary to do the necessary things.5 minutes is not so much to lose the thread of the game.

Sometimes you need to go to the bathroom, a break can be good.

5 minutes break is fine by me. Longer is not good for your focus.

The break is good as others have said for the snack grab or pee break. The only time that I do not like the break is when you have just reached the final table and the break starts. I find that I am anxious to get er done at that point, and so I do not want that break

Breaks are nice when you in large field and they can run 8 to 10 hours. I'd be very surprised to see anyone not wanting a break. from what you mentioned, you should be asking about switching tables.

In my opinion we need longer breaks both online and live play. Simply not enough time to prepare a proper meal, or even handle your personal business.

Yes it is important

I think it is important to take a break especially after 4 hours of game

And to let your head cool down for a moment...

I agree with all the previous comments. A break of 5 minutes is necessary for every player. During a game that can last for hours, it is absolutely necessary to at least get up from your chair and stretch legs.

Closer to the final table, I never leave the game during the breaks. And 5 minutes fly by quickly, it could be a little longer:cool::cool::cool:
