  • "cashing out" of an online cash game

    hey guys, i was just wondering when u all think is the right time to stop playing and "get up" from an online cash table. is it just when u feel tired? when u've lose so many buyins? when the players u were getting the most money out of have left? stack sizes of the other players? any information on when u feel it's time to leave a table would be appreciated.

    for me, i typically stay for 2-3 hours unless i feel like im completely outclassed by my opponents. it's really hard for me to leave b/c poker is just so much fun to play, and u never know when that big hand may be dealt to you.

    I leave when the table has more than 2 grinders(Regs),it doesnt take much effort to figure out who these people are at any lvl.

    I find it more profitable to start tables and leave them once they fill up.Twisted but it works for me,I just wash and repeat.

    If you are sticking to one table leave when you are not playing your A game and it should be pretty obvious to you if you are watching intently.
    I find I lose focus at about 45 minutes,cash is really boring for me though.
    Take 15 minutes and come back after a quick workout.

    Squats,pushups,pullups,situps and a quick go on the bike.
    Works wonders.

      I put up with the regs if I have someone fishy on my right. Yesterday, I stayed at a table with four regs for over 100 hands because the person on my immediate right was spewing left and right (but mostly left). I also filter tables by VPIP, and I find it very hard to get a table without two or more regs that also has an average VPIP over 30. So, I just try and focus on the fish.

      Makes sense to me. It always seems to be the startup table that have the fishiest players, because none of the regs seem to like playing shorthanded. There's probably a goldmine in startup tables.

        I normally leave when I double or triple up. Rathole the money and then switch to another table that has a higher average pot, so as to maximize VPP. If however, I'm on a table that has a high average pot, I usually stay as long as I can until the fish get eliminated or they leave.
