This is a discussion on What is your favorite time of day to play a tournament that you know is long? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I prefer to play long tournaments (+ 3hs) at midnight which is when my house is quiet and I can concentrate better
Most of my favourite tourneys are in dayytime for me, but I still prefer to play in night, no annoying noises, screaming machines, talking heads disturb me. It is quiet, I liked to work also in the nights, alone, it is the same..... even in break times, I can really relax a bit, smoke a cigarette in quiet peace.... the system,horde slaves are turned off....
By the way, the long tourneys start for me from 10 hours +

Most of the guaranteed prize tournaments take place during the evening hours CET. The biggest events of the week usually take place on weekends. On the one hand, a lot of players flock to these tournaments, which means that it is often harder to get into the prizes in such tournaments. Although this opinion can be challenged, since a lot of amateurs take part in such large fields, at whose expense you can increase your stack and comfortably go into the money. On the other hand, playing small tournaments off peak hours can be quite a win-win in the long run.
I can adapt to play at any time of the day, my only drawback is if I have to go out during the morning I prefer not to play, many times I prefer to play tournaments at night because I used to play certain tournaments that lasted 4 hours or a little more
I like to play on the weekend nights but I try to squeeze in a lil during the week. All the good tourneys start earlier and I usually get in early or wait til close of registration before I get in. I wish I could play every night but just can't right now but ill be happy with every other night soon. Good luck.
