Well, what make you get out of a MTT when you are in the half of it?? A urgency?? A headache??
if it's something that can wait until after my game, i'll wait. if not, i just sit out and do whatever it is i need to do. it's not that big of a deal as i only play microstakes mtts. so, sitting out during the middle of a $1 mtt doesn't bother me. when i get back, and hopefully i'm still in it, i just make the necessary stack adjustments.
i've even sat out of a final table to grab dinner with my gf. luckily, i was 2nd in chips when i sat out for ~45 minutes. came back and i was still in 4/4. did some maneuvering and was able finish 3/3 in the end.
I just manage it by saying that i take this particular day or evening off and cannot be disturbed. It is like when I am studying for university. We have a healthy relationship where we just adjust to each other and as long as it is not everday and we still have quality time together it is all fine and should be.
re: Poker & My girlfriend wants me in the middle of a MTT.
Bro just organize your time better, make a set poker schedule for MTT if your a grinder...if not, let your SO know you cannot be disturbed. Never leave a final table to go out for dinner! Crush that table and take your girl out the next day bro. Guys are nuts man.
