      Hi guys, how much u play poker daily? I have to ask because i usually have profit in first 3 or 4 hours of playing. After that i see that im starting to lose slowly and usually dont comeback on daily max profit. Probably my concentration is problem... But im not sure why always losing after 3 or 4 hours.

      I have the same problem. I play 1 hour than go to smoke. And after 10 minutes go again play.

      I do something similar. I play for about 2 hours, then go get some excercise and then come back and play 2-3 more.

      Lately anywhere between 2 to 6 hours, depending on whether or not I'm stuck. Usually I quit after about 3 hours if I made sufficient profit for the day, then I just reward myself with a movie or some series. Entertainment feels so much better when after successfully earning money.

      sounds like your chasing your losses. You should know better though :D

      Yeah, it's a habit from the days when I actually used to chase losses. Nowadays it's a different type of leak, I'm afraid I'll start playing worse and lose my profits. If I'm stuck despite playing well, I'll keep playing, but when I notice my play deteriorating I just quit.

      depends on my mood, time and objective.

      In April I have switched to Bwin and deposited $1000 to take advantage of the full bonus, and I have only 2 months to fully unlock it and its not easy.

      Its also the rake race every month, so this month and the next one, I have and probably continue doubling my play time.

      Also depends on the format:
      Cash game I usually didn't play more then 2 hours per sessions.
      MTT takes longer, but less concentration needed, because I don't play many tables

      Lately I played Double or Nothing Sit'n'Go 2-5 hours max per session, was trying to generate as much rake as possible. Was days when I played like 10 hours, but its minus EV, I probably was playing break even or even minus after so much time.

      It depends but i tend to play like 1h at the time or so, then i take a break and eat or do some pushups or something then ill go back to playing, but the total time a day can be all from 1h to 5h depending on mod and free time :)

      You make some breaks or play that much from once?
