  • Live poker way More exhausting

    Although I was almost exclusively an online player for years I enjoy playing a live a lot in These days .

    But live is very exhausting. I used to grind online 10 hours no Problem, live I am extremly exhausted after 7-8 hours. Why is this ?

    For instance flight 1 at 12 o clock Lunch time , busting after 6 - 7 hours , Too exhausted to play flight 2 which Starts 6 pm and where you can late Register until 8 pm

    I've never tried to play 2 flights in one day.

      I find this to be the case too. I'm not sure why it is, maybe lack of controlled environment, but have found healthy eating and regular exercise to help. Can do 12 hour live sessions fine now, but after that the quality of my play starts dropping off.

        Lots of reasons for fatigue live. Slower pace of play forced you to wait for prolonged time while adrenaline is pumping, your body can only last so long doing this. Canned A/C air is typically cold causing you body to expend energy to keep you warm. Less than quality food, soda, beer, alcohol, smokes all drain energy.

        my defenses arej At breaks, I go out of the casino for fresh air, bring healthy snacks, drink a lot of water, I also have an anti anxiety pill that I take to moderate the adrenaline (Ask your doctor for this, it helps)

          Yeah very cold in my Casino. Smoking allowed , fatty food Mostly. All you said makes perfectly sense . I Need to go outside at breaks More often .

          Why do you need such a pill ? Are you that excited every Time?

          What active Substance is this ?

          I was put on high blood pressure mess a few years back and one I didn't respond to very well but I played a few tournaments and noticed that I was very calm. It was a beta blocker called bisoprolo. When the doctor switched me off them I asked for that medicine just for poker play. He said bad idea but he gave me an anti anxiety med for one time use for people who have stage fright or are nervous about public speaking.

        Even though live is slower there is more information, particularly visual information, for your brain to process. There's also more work for your brain to do: You have to count or keep track of the pot size, you have to calculate a 1/2 pot bet rather than just pushing a button, etc. All this adds up to your brain doing more work and getting tired more quickly.

        Combine this with the environmental factors that XBobLove mentioned and it makes me wonder how I even last for a 4 hour session sometimes.

          Are you playing the Montreal event? Or just happens to be some other flight tourney?

          When we look at a three-times-the-big-blind raise with a hand like TT where the minimum action, a call, is already a given, we only need to consider the mathematical pressure the extra four chips put on our hand. But if we raise with a hand like 72, then we need to consider the mathematical pressure that all six chips in the bet put on us, because our choice is between zero and six chips going in, not between two and six going in. Now we’re risking six chips to win three (rather than four to win five) and laying 2-to-1 odds in poker online. That means we must believe we will win that hand two-thirds of the time to justify the raise. Notice the difference there. To justify raising with TT, we need to feel we’re likely to win 45% of the time more often than flat-calling but to raise with 72, we must believe we will win the pot 67% of the time just to break even. That’s a lot more pressure on the raise.

            This is definitely true but the limit depends on your goals. If you're trying to make poker your primary source of income, or even a significant secondary source of income, you're going to be spending many hours every week playing and studying

          I know this is an old thread, but I feel the opposite. 8-12 hour sessions live are relatively easy for me. My longest sessions online are usually ~5 hours, muti-tabling takes a lot of cognitive power and is fatiguing lol
