This is a discussion on With the pandemic, you are playing more poker. within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I spend all day playing poker and I even managed to increase my poker cash.
The impact on gaming companies has been severe. Just look at the stock graphs of three leading U.S. firms in this industry since the beginning of 2020. Needless to say, corporate accounting departments are feeling the crunch. But people still need to gamble so online poker is a realy good choice. hehe
I'm actually playing about the same amount, which is not very much. I am currently living on my family's property, which is a few hundred acres of farmland and woods. We don't have a lot of animals. But even without animals, there is still always something to do. So I try to stay busy, keeping up with the maintenance on the different houses and their yards. I might play a couple of on-demand tourneys or S&Gs in the evening here and there and one tourney in the wee hours of the morning when there are enough registered players for it to start. And I might go a day or two without playing at all. So, about the same amount overall.
None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with all of you. All of you are locked in here with ME!
I only play online poker, so nothing has changed for me in this regard, as long as I played poker before, I still play so much.
Maybe the players started playing more because they started going out less.
And I play tournaments, the coronavirus has not affected the daily schedule of online poker tournaments in any way.
I also play every day. I lose in expensive tournaments, the game just doesnít add up. The game is playing normally in cache. In general, I am satisfied with the current state of things. Good luck to all like-minded people.
I was used to playing almost every day, but now with the pandemic what I do practically all day is to play. Although it is a very difficult and sad moment for the world, the dollar has risen and the poker rooms are fuller and with bigger guarantees, so for those who play poker this is the perfect opportunity to play because there are many more recreational games and the prizes are bigger.
re: With the pandemic, you are playing more poker.
Hello, it is really like this, since the pandemic I am playing a lot more and studying a lot more poker, I want to achieve my goal of building my bankroll from 0, it is hard and slow work but I am going to achieve it in a few days. requirements to become a platinum cardchat member
I'm playing a lot now that I'm quarantined from work and pretty much forced to stay indoors. I played a lot of poker before but now it seems like more because I'm able to play during the day instead of during non peak hours after I return home from work.
I can say that I also play poker non-stop, but I don't see my bankrolls increase, I loose allways on weaker cards in tournaments, and I stopped playing cash game ... it would be better, I don't know how other players go?
hi. certainly, because I was not playing online anymore, with the beginning of the quarantine came that crazy desire to play again here I am, in the cardschat community. where I should never have walked away.
In poker we don't always win, so we must know when to stop when we're losing. everything has a new beginning.
Yes, of course ... now with this being home to be safe ... I have more time to play poker ...! And best of all, I'm enjoying it a lot ...! I'm worried about getting used to this and then when everything goes back to normal having to adjust again ...!
That's what my friends from the league I usually play in have been doing, since the pandemic. We only play once a week in real life, but they've created home game tournaments and been playing 4-5 games a night, every night for almost a month! Most are very good players and win quite a few of their games, with rewards.
Too rich for my blood...

This is a great question. I hadn't played online poker in 15 years. Since I am stuck at home, I decided to find something to do. So here I am. I have found that my skills are still there, but haven't had much luck. That last 4 tourneys I've played in I made the right calls but the other players just got lucky on me. One guy knocked me out with back to back suck-outs. What can a person do when that happens? Nothing.
