The time depends on the total activities that I have to do during the day.
But it also depends on my mood, because playing with little concentration or with nerves is very damaging to my case.
In addition, I am currently trying to prioritize quality over game volume, since I am analyzing the most critical points that I must work to improve.
It depends. During the week im working, back to home, some home activities, familly etc. then im playing in the evening 1 tournament and cash game. In the weekend im playing more 3-4 tournaments, its few hours.
The answer is simply not enough time! I play a Homegame once a month with friends and I try to play online as often as I can. However, I think to keep my edge and make my play increasingly instinctive and natural, I need to practice a lot more. I am happy for those persons who can devote the time needed to improve and stay sharp.
I spend about 6 hours a week playing poker and about 3-4 hours for the monthly Homegame. Still in the casual player group by the look of things!
re: Poker & How much time you spend playing poker?
In the winter, I have some time off work an d can play a bit more, but in the spring/summer/fall, I play a freeroll on this small site that only takes a little over an hour if you win it. and that I only play 3 or 4 days a week.
Been kinda busy, so poker has been taking a backseat. Getting in my tournament on a Wednesday, one on thursday and one on friday. I usually last one or two hours. Also get in maybe an hour of .05/.10 for maybe an hour a week at most, usually until friends or family calls for my assistance.
i play a lot of poker now. but not all at once. i do have to get up after a period of time to prop my legs up and get my back to relax. with a bulge disc and arthritis in the spin.and swollen in the legs and feet i hurt after playing for awhile and have trouble getting up out of the chair to the point i hope i don't fall down. like i have before.
