      What would you say is a good daily routine if you got nothing else to do besides poker?

      I'd say something like:

      Wake up at 9~10am
      Have breakfast, surf on the internet
      Go to the gym
      Review yesterdays sessions
      Study a bit
      Lunch
      Study more
      Play sessions with breaks
      Dinner
      Play sessions with breaks
      Go to bed at +-midnight?

      My holiday is starting and my only job is gona be poker, so here is the scheldule i was planning

      wake up 11.00-12.00
      breakfast + internet (maybe watch some series, movies)
      go jogging or something
      17.00-18.00 start first session, play till i run out of energy (to 23.00-24.00 several sessions and breaks between sessions)
      01.00-02.00 go to sleep

      Something like that. Might also want to take few days break from playing poker/week.

      I'm gonna spend parts of the summer playing poker only aswell... I thought a bit about it and this is what I think would work for me:

      wake up around 10-12 (depending on when I went to bed)
      eat some breakfast and plan my day (laundry, shopping or whatever)
      go to the gym/go for a walk/run errands
      lunch
      ~ 16u Study. Watch videos/read articles/review
      Dinner and breaktime
      ~ 21h Session start
      Breaks inbetween & a eveningmeal or something
      2-3 AM go to bed =)

      Few months ago when I had homestudies I could pretty much make my own schedule and as the tables are way fishier after 1 am or so I would prefer getting some hours in between 12am and 3 am. Preferably even later but I don't find being awake until 6 am every night and sleeping until 2 pm or so a good solution...

      I find it hard having such a twisted pattern so it's gonna be interesting to see how it works out =)

      i had a week off last month with crappy weather so stayed inside all the time

      i would wake up at 2-3pm...watch a video and play some sngs/cash
      then do do some exercise,eat,relax for 2-3 hours
      at 8pm get back to poker and register for all MTTs from $3 to $25 within the next 5 hours
      hope i run good enough to stay up till 6-7am
      if not play some hyper turbo SNGs to get me off tilt and get my money back
      then go to sleep or fall asleep while in the middle of a game :D

      on sunday 6am i didnt go to sleep but went running to keep myself awake so that i could go to sleep at a proper time in the evening cuz on monday i need a normal waking up time :D
