This is a discussion on How to cope the long 8-12 hours of online MTT? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hi pals
Recently I am unable to cope the long sessions of online MTTS especially during the night time. I would like to know how
For such long tournaments you have to prepare well to spend 8-10 hours playing poker .... the first thing I do is to play this type of tournaments on days where I do not have to work, nor any commitments to attend any place in later hours because that situation could cause me to have to leave the tournament and generate a lot of stress ... then be well hydrated during the tournament and be as comfortable as possible to avoid fatigue ....
In tournaments with a very large number of players, the main prize is usually 200-300 times the entry fee, so when playing in such tournaments, in my opinion, do not stick to the tactics of "crawling into prizes." If you play at least 100 times and win once, you will be in a very big plus, so, for example, I try to play as aggressively as possible, in the sense that I'm not afraid to go all-in with equal chances. At least once out of 100 should be lucky and it will be possible to win a big prize. Namely, this goal is pursued by the majority of players participating in poker tournaments.

True,, i don`t get bored playing poker.It`s exciting to think,the next `Big` hand is right around the corner (but then i`m never `bored`) (a wasteful emotion) I find it more contructive to clean something or improve your life in someway if your bored,their`s always something to do(dishes,laundry,garbage,dust)Improve your surroundings,improve your state of mind,Feel Better!
