Highest traffic days are Thursdays-Sundays. For peak times just login to the site you play at few days a day and take a look at the population. Hopefully the site you play at posts the total number of players online. Play when it's at it's peak it'll be the same times pretty much daily.

The first response is also good advice. Don't play when tired and/or not feeling it. You'll just be throwing away money.

Cheers!!!
Thank you for sharing these insights! It's definitely valuable to know the peak traffic days and times on gaming sites. Playing when the population is highest can enhance the overall gaming experience and potentially improve one's chances of finding more competitive matches or opponents. And I couldn't agree more about the importance of being in the right mindset while gaming. Playing when tired or not fully focused can indeed lead to unnecessary losses. Cheers to maximizing the enjoyment and success of our gaming sessions!

it depends from person to other but the most important don't play when you are tired or not prepared, For me the hard time to play is in the morning, I do prefer to play late nights.

Tell me, in your experience, at what time of day is it hardest to play online poker?
I wonder what time strong players usually play in order to understand for myself what time is best to play?
I like to play in the evening and at night. This time is the most convenient for me, because I have the opportunity to fully focus on the game and not be distracted by other things. It is difficult for me to play during the day because I am constantly distracted. But regarding when stronger players play and when weaker players play, this question is very relative, since our planet is round, and strong players live on all continents :)

Personally, I prefer the afternoon, because at that time there is more traffic, and therefore it is more profitable to play, also because this way I don't interrupt the routine that I have every day so I also enjoy poker.

online poker is also one of those areas of activity that involves building your own schedule. If you want, play during the day, if you want, play in the evening. If you want, start loading late at night, there is always a game.The average citizen returning after an 8-hour work day sits down to spend a pleasant evening with poker and beer, and automatically becomes a desirable prey for a regular, for whom poker is primarily a job. Evening is the time for poker for amateur players, which means it’s time for more “tasty” courses.

It is difficult for me to play in the morning. In the morning, I am rather sluggish, I think slowly and make decisions that are not well-founded. My favorite time to play is in the evening and at night, when my brain works most productively.

It's hard to say when because of the different time zones.
Someone who plays at a professional level can sit down anytime, not during work hours when most people are working/studying. Most amateur players sit down to play in the evening hours, but due to time zones, this means something different for an American and another for a European.

I love online morning and afternoon games (cash games and spin&go's (gold) - personally evening live cash games adore...night games is not for me - that's time is for painting, writing, time when all crazy artists have biggest inspiration...or to sleep! 😁

Usually recreational players play more at night after work and professional players play during the day. But here in my country for example, if I play on afternoon I play against recreational players of Europe, so, it also depends of where you live. But I usually like to play when I'm more focused, so, for me would be on afternoon/night, because I'm definitely not a morning person.

It's harder for me to play in the morning because I'm not used to waking up early

Well rested anytime is good, personally I don't like playing weekends because of the fish playing any two.

For me, it's more difficult to play between 6pm and 11pm, not because of the game, but because there are more people at home at that time, and the noise distracts me.

It's more difficult to play when there are fewer players and the times vary from room to room.

This depends where you live and depends when you are tired. I do not like playing at 1AM pacific time, but that might be a great time to play on some sites.

For me, the most difficult thing is to play at night with the transition to the morning.

The most difficult time to play poker is when you are tired, have problems, are not mentally prepared, or at bedtime. All of these factors will reduce your concentration and patience and will double your stress.

Better focus on when you yourself can show your best game.

I can play poker anytime. But unfortunately, I play only in the evenings, when I have free time. Morning, day or night, I'm always ready to play, even at night, but since our planet is round, and people play poker all over the world, you can meet strong players at any time of the day :)

it's harder to play when you don't get enough sleep or are tired after work and you're here to play poker and then it'll definitely be difficult for you to play. And if you get enough sleep or aren't tired, you can play at any time, but at night all players come home from work and it's easier to play against ordinary people if you play during the day and who makes poker against them will be harder to play in the evening

Sometimes in the evening if you have been working all day or did not sleep well the previous night. I find weekends the least tiring times to play as I have had a rest and there are fewer distractions.
