It's amazing what can be done in 5 minutes. I have gotten very good at time management for this. LOL. When I see the clock at ten mins to the hour, I start deciding in my head what needs to be done. Then see if I am in or out of the last hand and will pre fold if necessary so I can get an extra minute or two.

So usually consists of a bathroom break, feeding the cat, making something quick to eat and checking email/fb and checking to see what tourneys are coming up next.

My opinion

Yeah I do that too. I share a place with many people. So sometimes it gets hard to smoke. Then you canned out of a tourny quick sometimes you usually go on a boag until next tourny. The trick is don't inhale down throat.

I always try to get up from the table during the break. I’m doing some small household chores, I can make tea or coffee, bring an apple from the kitchen.

when I smoked I did the same thing hahaha. Now I take the opportunity to go to the bathroom, stretch my legs, eat something, touch my cell phone and etc. In order not to be just 100% in the game, I take the 5 minutes to distract a little from the game.

Go and get something to drink, maybe eat something, go to the bathroom if necessary. Occasionally, play a Spin n Go. Lol

Basically, a five-minute break for me is the time to smoke. But sometimes, if I play for a long time, I make tea and some sandwiches. Unfortunately, during this time it is impossible to do anything more)))

Primarily go to the toilet. Unless the bladder is emptied, it is difficult to stay focused. Everything else is less important ...

Honestly, I also have this bad habit. I have been smoking for over 25 years and no doubt it has a bad effect on my game and my health in general.
