What days of the week do you play?

I tend to play weekdays as I am busy doing stuff at the weekend. So I play this weekend, and holy guacamole, donks EVERYWHERE. I'm not that surprised really, but some of the play is cringeworthy, enough to put a player on tilt big time.

QJo as a big stack is apparently enough to enter EP on a 9 handed table, then call my AJo ai shove on the BB and hit two pair.

Anyway..

I find I make more money during the week, mornings and afternoons. Only bad side is there a tonne of aussies who play Ax like it's some gift from the heavens, and are often sucking out and winning with chit.

Practically everyday or at least every second day but not more than 1-2 hours/day. 90% of that time is playing at night.
Interesting that you say that you make more money during the day coz i noticed that too with me. Whenever having the chance for a quickie early morning it usually turns out to be a score lol Tongue
Maybe its the morning buzz affecting my play... or my opponents play who knows.
Weekends are a donkfest indeed coz of all the hero/drunk players but what can you do... bad poker is better than no poker at all Confused

loool - weekends are ruled by drunk russians and their followers...in a way this makes the game really +ev on paper, but with all the swings u can expect...well u might have to wait for the next weekend to wipe out your losses.
since i mostly stick to freerolls i don't experience any real difference

I play every day and take some break when I feel im tilting!!

I do play a lot on friday, saturday and sunday because most recreational players do play on that day so I can maximize my edge!! Also a good time to play is at when the end of the month is approaching where people get their pay day lol.

Just play tight and they will donate money, they play their cards and this should be easy to exploit!! Its like playing them face up!!

It look like servers push this donk style,every year we pass the level of the game get lower.All the recreational players and the soft is protecting their donk style.This the new strategy of the poker rooms,make the donk win with a weak hand to encourage him to bet more

Evenings for me though sometimes I have played in the day. I usually play a few hours before bed.

You do wonder, but this is all conjecture. It makes perfect sense of course - however people forget poker is very swingy anyways, even for pros, never mind us underlings.

Right now all it is is and excuse for bad play.

I used to have about 5 games going at once just about ALL day long. The BrM Freerolls,....the $100K Privilidge or ChromeStar Freerolls....an assortment of $1.10 through $11 buy ins....and whatever special promos PS had going at any given time....

That got to be TOO much on the ol' head after a few years, so I've drastivally scaled back!

The lower the buy in.....the higher the donk-bingo queen factor becomes.... Confused

Yeah its a heavy game mentally especially multitabling 3+ all the time and having to make snap decisions because one table is timing out etc.

I'll have 3 at the most, usually two, allows for max concentration.

Ya,......and you also have to keep tabs on who's who,...and what they're up to and all about,....which is hard to do with too many tables.

I find 2 or 3 tables is optimum. 4 fit into my screen nicely!

Yup, weekends can be pretty swingy, but if you're a good player, you should make a considerable long-term profit on Saturday/Sunday. Personally - as an Australian, GMT + 10hours, I can play during the day on Sunday VS European players up late Saturday night (drunk Smile ) and make a fortune on a good day, there's been days when I've playing 9 tables of ring games and ended up +10BI in less than an hour.

Every night you should play tight and then just do it quick, imo it should be a quickie, go in pofit, either little or alot, instead of playing 3+ h.
It should be a lot of cash game or sit&go quickies.
And in MTT cases, the tight play with a big amoung of players is abbv. waste of time, becouse of the donks hitting.

sunday is definitely the donks day or the all in merchants as i call them. they call your all ins with 5 7o and the flop will come 3 4 6. during the week is the best time to play and always try to avoid the sundays and go for a few pints instead!
