Because I play only recreationally, and I dont chase any goal, I play how long I want to play And also because I play mostly tournaments, it depends how I am doing in those tournaments If I run good, than its longer, If I dont, then, well....
I usually play all day, but when I realize that I'm on tilt I leave the game to not lose chips. You have to know your time to stop when you're in tilt, it's an essential rule, it's no use playing when you're like this, hang out a bit, cool your head and continue later.
If you will play too long,especially without a breaks, you will loose your concentration and loose money. You need to have at least a 5-10 minutes breaks during sessions. Also i think that 5-6 hours session is a maximum for one day.
I play almost exclusively MTT's so the amount o time I play will be very different from someone who grinds at the cash tables. I like the trnies with 10 to 15 minute blinds so I usually play for anywhere between 3 to 6 or 7 hours.
I only play live 1 day a week every Thursday I go to my local casino for a tournament I love this day of the week ive tried to get a another day aswell but my wife isn't keen on the idea lol I play online most days she says im lucky I get 1 day a week don't push my luck haha I hate women who don't like poker
It depends on which day I'm playing, some days are really horrible for me, because don't have many freerolls, so I almost don't play.
Another day like thursday are great!!
So, it goes from 2 hours to 10 hours.
My playing hours are rather irregular, ranging anywhere between 4-12 any given day. Is your schedule similar to mine (in that it's non-existent)? Or do you play set hours every day? Just trying to pick brains for more tips on how to improve the other intangibles.
Well this is like my full-time job (I'm not at high enough stakes to afford to truly live alone yet but grinding while living with parents and improving) so I play literally 12 hours a day on average, minimum.
