This is a discussion on Do you take days off from poker every week or do you play everyday? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I try to take at least one day off from playing every week. I find that if I play everyday then I lose focus sometimes.
Yes everyday is different.......sometime i play coupke tournament and sometime i take day off.....i have a life before poker.....my children my girlfriend.......poker is hobby if i dont play a day or couple day its normal too
I prefer to play everyday if feasible. The only time I do not is if I occasionally fall ill.
It does not mean every day consists of hours of play. Somedays are short and sweet other days longer depending on time and inclination.
However, to a degree I wanted to build poker into the fabric of my life to make poker as natural as exercising or eating where you do not question doing something everyday..
Yes, different activities and different demands. However, I have never heard a successful pro player who did not make note of the fact they were engaged with poker in an intense daily manner for an extended period. I think it comes with the territory is anyone strives for success and would apply to athletes or business people or any fields where demands are high- such people are in a specific mode 7 days a week. Yes sometimes more mental than physical, but I do not find firing up a poker site an overwhelming task - it is invariably exciting.
I personally play every day and can compare these games with each other. There are days when there are good cards and combinations and days when you don't go at all.
If I see that there are good cards and combinations, then on this day I play several tournaments.
poker very much depends on your inner state, mood and well-being. I do not advise turning poker into a standard multi-hour work, this greatly affects the game. You should always play your best poker, which means that you need rest and ways to distract yourself from the continuous tension during the game.
I play poker for entertainment and do not put the goal to earn a game for life. I play minus but only the one I can afford without prejudice to seven. I play when there is a desire and the possibility sometimes there is a desire to play and there is no money There is a certain rule to make money to the account. Therefore, I am financially not fulfilled to play every day ...
There is something in the world that is worth fighting to the end. This is family.
The most advisable thing would be to take 2 days off a week, since playing every day can stress a lot and your mind and brain need to rest, you also have to share with your family and enjoy the days off
About rest in poker :
I know a lot of professional players at my $ 2.5 / 5 limit. They have their own schedule, that is, 3-6 hours of play, then rest and after 5 hours again the same way. For some, it helps them fight tilt while playing.
For most people, poker is a job! And as in a regular job, you have time to rest. In the modern world there are many examples when people work a lot and do not pay enough attention to rest - such people often suffer from various diseases. heart and not only. So take care of yourself
I play almost every day. But I noticed that on weekends I was catastrophically unlucky, I was constantly being won by cards lower than mine. If I only rest on weekends, I still can't win anything these days.
I was one of the people who played poker practically every day ... and now due to my work it is difficult for me to play so often ... in such a way ... that now I'm only playing the weekdays .... but I think for mental health .... it is good to take at least a day off without playing poker ...!
