Quitting a Game

The good player quits a game that is not financially worthwhile or that conflicts with a more profitable game. He normally quits under the best possible circumstances and retains good relationships with its players. Even after quitting, he may occasionally play in the game to renew his contacts and to recruit players for bigger games.

John Finn quit the Thursday night game because it was not profitable enough to consume another weekday night on poker. He quit under congenial circumstances and occasionally returns to play and recruit new players for the bigger games. In the past two years, he has recruited four players from that game for the higher-stake Monday and Friday night games. He won an estimated $10,000 from those four players in one year.
