This is a discussion on Playing a tournment that starts midnight tips on preparation? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hi Guys,
Just wondering what tips have you got for someone who is going to start playing a MTT at midnight. I will be playing a
Snacking is huge! I often find myself snacking on things (peanuts, pecans, potato chips, etc) when playing tournaments late. I also recommend drinking something with caffeine, such as coffee, tea, or coke. Also, make sure that you eat a meal well before the tournament time (you do not want to get really hungry, but do not eat a big meal right before it starts or it will leave you sleepy)
re: Poker & Playing a tournment that starts midnight tips on preparation?
if i was going to play after midnight and had planned to play it then i might take a knapp-and ide also have some redbulls on hand for when i started getting a lil sleepy-i think something to eat is important as well-ive fell asleep playing some years back so i know getting overly tired is a true game killer
Now on a serious note, i'm in your general area also and I have given up trying to play major events at those times as they just run too long and stamina is hard to have if you have been up all day.
I see you get up at 4am to play normally, maybe on the day you want to play the major then go to bed four hours earlier than you normally do and wake up at midnight.
During your major game try and play some other games to keep you from getting bored by the regular time wasting in those major games, have things that stimulate your mind going on when you are not involved in a hand but always keep an eye out as to what is happening on your table.
Good luck Aces.
