as I play every day and sometimes 3 simultaneous tournaments, sometimes I get tired of playing poker, then I stop playing 3 (three) tournaments and play only 1 (one).

It' s a usual case when a player gets tired of playing. I see lots of players getting tired and losing in stupid moves. The ability to cope with tiredness at the tables is a thing that differentiates a winning player from casual player.

Yes, of course it is tiring, that is why there are times when one needs to go for a walk, clear up, and then resume calmly. This is my case xD

I play tournament poker every day, several tournaments at a time.
When I get tired of playing poker, I play cash :D

Hello.
For me, poker is a hobby that never gets boring. If I had enough free time, I would no doubt play every day. Unfortunately, I do not have enough free time, so I only play 3-4 days a week.

poker needs patience and the body rested, if not, stop and go get some air

Yes, at times I find it tiring and tiring, even to the point of stopping playing for a day or two and picking up more strongly later.

Try playing only a couple hours or even an hour if you get bored of playing too quickly.

I find that online is a lot more boring and tiresome than playing in person. Sure, you see more hands but it's less engaging

I certainly don't think there is a player who doesn't get tired.
for that I like to go out and see new airs for a couple of days without playing and come back invigorated

Yes after losing 10% of my annual bankroll am crushed mentally sick and tired of playing the higher buy in stakes defeat and losses I think is why most players get fed up,:dontknow:
freerolls micros and only withdrawals allowed for the rest of the year for me no more deposits whether I play 1 table or 3 or 4 though makes no difference to me really.:)

When I feel tired I just don't start the game. Usually, if I play, then 4-5 tables at a time. That is, I have two options, either to play as usual or not to play at all.

Doing hundreds and hundreds of algebraic equations is tiring - this is why people should not grind for long periods of time, the mind simply cannot perform optimally when overtaxed and causes burnout.

getting tierd of poker

It does not like that I get tired of playing poker entirely, yes it does happen to me as well but some time out of playing many hands online my mind gets frustrated and fatigued. so we should not forget our daily life. we shouldn't forget about exercising, eating healthy food properly, drinking enough water, and proper sleep so that we will be able to continue more functional in our poker life.
the other thing is that playing poker not just its a job for me but sometimes I play it with my friends for fun and its shouldn't be like a routine that you repeat something every day, you should give it a break sometimes to start fresh all over again

I often get tired of playing when I play too many tournaments. Maybe because I just play poker for fun so I don't take it seriously. I now just play poker when I am in a good mood and ready to play in a long time.

It's a mental game that's why. But my advice to you is take rest when you feel exhausted.

unfortunately it often happens that the best tournaments last well into the night. This is tiring for European players. I would like tournaments to start a bit earlier (for Europeans)

Saturation. I just had enough of the game that I do not care anymore which leads to not paying attention which is detrimental to the performance.

Yes, I get tired playing poker, specially when I’m playing for hours. I noticed that after 4-5 hours of play, my attention is not the same.

Sometimes I usually play 4 but when I'm a little tired I play one or in some cases I don't play one day and I prefer to rest and study

Yes, I Need a Short Break

I have a day job (and a life). So, I typically play 2-3 hrs a day. Sometimes on weekends I may play 8-12 hrs a day. If that is on Saturday, I often do not even feel like playing on Sunday, regardless of Saturday results. I Need A Break!

Best of Luck at the Tables All,

CheezeWiz

When I play 'a lot', more than my brain can bear, I get tired.
