When to Play Poker Strategy

My poker strategy on when to play poker for me is late at night when the wild, fun loving , possibly drunk, just got off work people, with a pocket full of money come in. Plus they are tired from working all day and I just woke up fresh and alert.  

What time of day can really change the game. Also what day of the week too. Late at night players are throwing a party and  their chips are the party favors. And most of the otherwise good players there quickly go on tilt. From getting their aces beat by the maniacs that are loose in the casino. It becomes a storm with money flying around!

Or I could play early in the morning against the disciplined retired gentlemen who have been playing since before I was born. They are nice and patient with no job to scurry off to because they're retired. And my party guys are nowhere to be found as they are at work getting more money for the next game. I think I will wait for them to get back.


Everyone is Different

  • Know your best times to play. Maybe you have adapted a poker strategy where you are skilled at reading people and bluffing. The early morning games may be a better choice for you.
  • Also someone else may prefer them because they will often go on tilt playing against loose crazy players. Just know yourself and decide what's best for you.

Don't Play Tired

I can't comment to much because we all have different work schedules. And have to play poker around them. My personal experience was never having to do this because I was playing poker for work. And yes it is work believe me.

You know best when you can handle the game. I can tell you one thing for sure. I have never seen anyone falling asleep at the table or fatigued win that I can ever remember. This is my Poker Strategy on When to Play Poker.
