This is a discussion on Planning your optimal poker schedule. within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; :ciao: Hello CC
Do you have a schedule that makes it easy for you or you feel more comfortable playing poker? Does it have to do
Well ... for me it is in the afternoons after dinner ... I have no doubt ... I feel more relaxed and ready to play ... since I have finished all my duties for the day ... so I enjoy more of the game....!
As for poker, I do not have a schedule that I follow. I just play when I have free time. Usually in the evenings, at night or on weekends.
Same. I can play whenever though. I like to joke that if you were to barge into my bedroom at 4 in the morning, I'd probably jump out of bed if you wanted to play poker :P
There are no superstitions I have about time, but I think most people play better poker when they are more relaxed or focused and that may be at different times of the day (or night) for different people - it is usually just whenever you have free time.
I dont have any schedule (maybe because I am not a professional player ) I play when I want to, I also look at availible tournaments in lobby. My favourite are PKOs, so if I see one with not too big buyin starting soon I am playing it
It is difficult for such an international poker site to please everyone on the tournament schedule. So I have to adapt my games to PS graphics. All of my games are approaching 12 at night, which is very sad considering that I have to play at least 5-7 hours.
in my country i start my games at 08:00 hrs and go until 7:30 pm at the most because this time my wife is already at home and she doesn’t like me to play until later so i think about it since i already spent all day playing.
Generally I play 4 tables in the morning and 6 in the afternoon.. but I've been playing SnG only .. it's quite easy for you to manage your time in sit n goes's. I do this cuz to me it seems way less stressful and tiring than a session playing 10 tables at a time... In time I want to increase the number of tables I play a day, but till then this way is been working pretty well for me
I often play tournaments and I really don't have a schedule because most tournaments start in the evening and that's when I usually play poker.Also,most freerolls that I like to play start in the evening as well.
Do you have a schedule that makes it easy for you or you feel more comfortable playing poker? Does it have to do with any superstition? have a great day
The best schedule depends on each country, for example in mine. the afternoons are excellent to play Poker, the most important tournaments take place at that time and one has been finishing them - if you do well - at night, and when it's bedtime.
I prefer to play between 7PM and 11PM, but the interesting freerolls for me, who live in Costa Rica, often start between 12PM and 5PM and it is not practical to be able to concentrate while I have customers coming and going.

When I wake up I make two large cups of coffee and I am off to the races with poker. For me this is perfect and I also play after my afternoon nap. I like playing when I am fresh and cannot play after a long day of doing nothing. Playing poker for me it has to be after rest or a good sleep. The eight hour grind is tuff on me as I am old so in the end the physical and mental part always gets the better of me. Rest is a huge part of my game. Capo1014
Certainly when I take the day off to play I try to leave the weather as pleasant as possible for me to play I close the door to my room I take my water6 and coffee to my side and put my playlists and that's it for me
