Know When to Fold em
Know When to Fold'em
Even the best poker legends have their tougher days. The secret to becoming a real poker pro is to know when you're beat and fold a good hand every now and then.
Here are some obvious red flags that will say when it's time to pack it in;
You're becoming emotionally unstable and on the edge of 'tilting'
You are trying way too hard to break even for the day before you quit
You are too eager to get back into the action and are not patient to wait for a reasonable hand
You think your opponents are constantly bluffing
You've played for more than ten hours for the day
You are having trouble concentrating because you are distracted by sleep, alcohol, something on your mind, etc.
Overall, though, if your game seems to be falling fast, it's time for a breather. Though your ego might hurt a little, your head, your bankroll and your overall reputation will be much better off.
