This can be called a poker player’s midsummer night’s dream. But what should be next? After so much fun is almost obvious that is very hard to come back to the old habits.
After a crazy vacation, many poker players find it hard to return to the long grinding sessions. Most of them are usually dreaming with the eyes wide opened and this thing usually affects their game.

Improve your focus by reducing the number of tables
This is a piece of very good advice especially for those poker pros who are used to play many tables. Even if you are usually playing only two tables try for a short period of time to play only one. This will help you regain your focus and to make the best decisions. Don’t worry: little by little you will have again your shark tooth full of your opponents’ blood.
Even if you are a top player try to play a smaller stake for a while
Don’t be scared! This thing doesn’t mean that you are not good anymore. But usually after a poker break it is good to put yourself together without loosing too many money. Playing at a smaller stake than you usually do can help you regain your skill and this way you will be more self-confident when you will be back to your older stake.
