Self-exclusion is a feature that allows you to exclude yourself from depositing money and playing poker online on PokerBaazi. This can be done for a specific period of your choice.

Before you decide to exclude, here are a few questions that you must ask yourself

  • Have you ever missed deadlines or reached late to work or college because you were involved in a game of poker?
  • Has your time with family and friends reduced because you are regularly playing poker online for hours?
  • Have you borrowed money to play poker online?
  • Have you played for longer than you had decided to when you started playing?
  • Have you ever played till you put in all the money you have in your bank account?
  • Have you ever thought of committing suicide or had any such self-destruction ideas as a result of what’s happening in your online poker games?

If you answered YES to more than 4 questions on this list, it is recommended that you take a break. You must practice mindfulness and self-control when playing online poker games. Poker and its exciting promotions will still be running after you come back from your break, but your time, money and mental peace won’t return anytime soon.

When to take A Poker Break

On PokerBaazi, as a part of Responsible Gaming, during the period of self-exclusion, you will not be allowed to make any deposits or sit on any table to play poker online. However, you can still log in to withdraw your balance. In case you registered for any PokerBaazi tournament, you will automatically be unregistered after you decide to use the self-exclusion option. The buy-in amount will be credited to your account and you will not be able to join the tournament.

Self-exclusion is an extremely beneficial feature of Responsible Gaming if at any point of time, you are unable to practice self-discipline and need to restrict yourself from playing poker online. This could be due to several reasons such as either because you are utilizing more funds than you can afford to or because you are spending more hours than what you can spare.

Food for Thought

Taking a break is never a bad idea but actually a wise decision that you must ponder upon once in a while when the going gets tough. Every game has its highs and lows and one should take it as a part of the spirit of the game. Give credit to your opponents when they play it better than you and accept your mistakes so that you can fix them to improve in your next game. Keep emotions out of the game at all times, only then can you make decisions that will favor your game and your overall mental health.
