I think if you are not a professional poker player, then I think the main prerequisite should be, first, the family, the main job, and only then poker as your entertainment.

for me poker is like going to football with friends for a beer, for me poker and fun if I win well if we don't go ahead. We go to work in the evening when I get home, I spend some time in front of the computer (ie poker :D:D:D:D)

Poker is a hobby, so I play just when I have a free time. If I mix hobby and work notfing good expects me.

Almost everyone plays when work allows. I think there are few pro players among us :)

I do it a little differently. I try to finish any work, household chores before the start of the poker game.

I am in a wheelchair and I am on disability so I can play when I feel like it outside of my life and responsibility, LOL.

Look at it like this online poker rooms and casinos are 24/7 365 my job is not 24 hours. Plus I can play on certain websites through my phone so I have time to play if I'm not working or into other things.

Poker to me is both a hobby and a side hustle so I love the fact that I have the flexibility to play whenever I want or wherever I want. Also if I win some money I can get paid whenever I want through crypto. So it's an awesome balance through the tip of my fingers.

I was bedridden for about 1 year, which is what got me back into online poker.

I understand your statement very well.

I hope you are doing well. :)

I also can't combine them. Only on weekends. And if you plan to make poker for a living, you will have to give the game all the time. It's not working out yet.

Life is Life and Poker is just a gambling methode in the end you need to be lucky to be good in poker.
So make it as a hobby Play just in the weekends and start with thr freerolls if you are a beginner.

I play once a week, too. If someone realizes Poker keeps them away from more important things, it's Time to set priorities

How do people have time to play poker all the time either you dont work stay with mommy daddy witch must be nice if you do or retired I have to work got a kid it hard to find time to do anything but that's life for yea just that I vent she what everybody else thinks about it

We all want and love to play poker every day if we can, but work is definitely the most important thing, and when you find time to play poker do it, that's it.

If your job prevents you from playing poker and drinking beer, then quit your job.:D
