This is a discussion on What time do you prefer to play? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I am a morning poker player. I like it best because I feel like I知 have a lot of energy and by evening I知 too
I am the opposite - evening and night only. At morning and the daytime there's always something that deconcentrate me, noise, phone calls, tv - and at night its calm and quiet. Besides, I'm an owl-type person, I am wreck at the morning and live at night (now its almost midnight at my timezone).
Honestly anytime of day especially now that almost everyone is laid off but use to hate playing if I knew i had work in a few hours but no matter what I would try to get the moist money i possibly could then when it came time to work either let my brother take over or hopefully id make it to paying seat by sitting out
I also like to start in the morning and at noon. Too late in the evening I am tired and the concentration is not at 100%. I also have the feeling that there are too many "yolo" players in the evening, especially on weekends. I think I often play against drunk players.
In the rare moments when i have free time during weekend hence i can select when to play i also like to play after i get up when i am still fresh. Most of the time though i play after i get back from work in the evening. Moreover the MTTs that i like best to play are evening events also. When playing in the evening i like most the MTTs that start around 7 to 8 pm in the evening and end around midnight even if you go deep. They are perfectly balanced for me as i have time to come back from work and have dinner and i also can go to sleep early enough so that this does not affect my ability to work on the next day.
I regularly play at any time, but when I play at night I have realized that my results are better for the tranquility that I have, however it is not the time that I like the most because the next day I feel stunned by the lack of sleep, in truth the best time would be from 2 pm. or the one that each one feels more at ease. Good luck at the tables !!!
I think that there is no correct time, I think it is more than having enough time to be able to play as calmly as possible, when you enter a tournament and have things to do, you do not play well because you know that you have other responsibilities and that will makes it fail. If you put me to choose a schedule, it would be early in the morning but after having rested very well, the mind is fresh and you hardly make any novice mistakes while playing, apart from your mind being less distracted and more concentrated.
Almost all the tournaments that interest me are held at an extremely inconvenient time for me. Therefore, I have already got used to the fact that a convenient time is when it is still possible to implement it.
