First think then fold


Take your breaks

As some of us addicts, might play for hours and hours. But keep in mind, our mental fitness decreases over the time.

It oftens happens to me, that I play on cashtables and double up in the first hour
- then play another hour break even
- then the next half hour some loses and  I am finding myself at playing 30% of the hands, and wonder how that could be.
- then promising myself to tighten up again.
- then stupidly play another half hour and the moneys gone.

Ok, thats a bit dramarturgic description, but I have to be more aware of my mental fitness during play. And take brakes. Maybe some of you have found similar situation, decreasing your bankroll.

I will be more cautious in the future I promise!

Have fun giving away your money to gamblers...
