Heys people, for everyone who's grinding online, when is the optimal time for you to end the session? Some prefer to end at a peak profit. For me, I don't know when my peak is, so I just set a duration to keep playing till the time is up.

What's everyone's take on this?

Hi TheAwesomeNW!

For me, it depends. If there are a couple fish at the table, I'll stay longer, but I try to end a table at about a 50% profit from my buy-in. Depending on the table dynamics though, it could be much sooner or longer than that.

Good luck at the tables.

When you are running good chase the good run and keep playing but alot of people make the mistake of chasing the losses thinking they will make it up. Rarely does that work.

My sessions are time based, usually 1-2 hours
As for the tables, I close them once I reach 100% return

Staying as long as you feel you are the favorite and can beat the game, get out if it becomes too tough or there's some tiredness, distraction and focus loss.
