You’re getting tired or getting beat and it’s time to call it quits for the day. So you get up and grab your coat off the back of the chair and grab what’s left of your chips.
But wait! Have you checked to see where the blinds are on the table?
This is very important as the only time you should ever consider leaving a game of Texas Hold’em is when the big blind has come all the way around, one to your right.
If you don’t know why, you probably shouldn’t be playing poker but we’ll tell ya anyway!
As long as your not forced to post the small or big blind, it’s basically a risk free proposition for you to see what hole cards are dealt to you.
We can understand getting up and leaving if your totally busted out but if you have chips left, why not view the risk free cards? The worst that can happen is you can fold’em which doesn’t take any loot out of your pocket.
Besides, ya never know, maybe a pair of bullets is on the way!
