That balance is what I kept this year, during the weekdays, in the evening period after work I was playing casino, and cash, on the weekends, freerolls and tournaments at pokerstars and 888 poker.

To combine the game of poker and the main work, I have selected those tournaments that run for 1.5 - 2 hours.

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.

I agree 100%. Basically, this is how my priorities are now. Of course, I would like poker to be my main job and generate income, but so far these are only dreams)

I know security guards who sit at work and play poker in the evenings when no one is there, combine work and additional earnings, the bosses do not know about this.

We must think about work, family and at the end about poker. I play after work, mainly Friday or Saturday, on evening.

It is not easy to play after work. I feel a bit tired and I do not play a lot of cash games because I want to avoid mistakes. But if I feel fresh and I have time, I like to play after work.

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

The child grows up, priorities change.

Have patience and less anger.

Everything will work out in the end!

When I work it is unfortunately not possible to play, that's why it's called work. I limit poker to late evenings and weekends these days. I feel I have a good balance now.
