Page 8 - This is a discussion on What do you do during a 5 minute break within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I run outside during my break and smoke half a cigarette
I think a lot of players do that
Depends on the time of the break...usually, I use it to have a bathroom break, but late at night, I use it to get ready for bed and say goodnight to my wife, since I don't know when I'll get knocked out.
What I always do is drink a little water or go to get fluids hahahaha to concentrate better and not have problems in the middle of the game with all the possible options to have at the table I could not afford to lose concentration
eat, change music, think about other things and see the table, the ranking what are my real chances of winning at least something, if there is an acquaintance playing I see how it is going, I talk on the phone and see the pages that I have in the browser, but I do nothing
depends on the level of the game. when i'm already close to the bubble i try to meditate (mentalize) so as not to make mistakes in the levels that follow. as I have little time to study, I try to focus on what I’ve already learned.
A surprising large amount from nipping to the loo and getting a coffee to feeding my cat! Sometimes I nip to the shop or try and do some exercises. If I lost a big hand just before often I'll just sit fuming
