      I just want to know what adjustments people make to their game depending on the time of day. I usually play in the evening Australian time but I've recently played a bit more earlier in the day and the game is completely different. I play Rush poker and generally find that 90% of players are rocks and almost always fold to a c-bet even in multiway pots and if they fight back they have a set, easy. When I play earlier in the day they are completely stupid, ok I respect players that will fight back with light 3-betting and floating in the right spots but calling with A high on a dangerous board for value really messes with me. Here are a few hands I played just then, no idea if I played them well but try and place each villian on a range and see if his cards fall in that range because I can't and I would like to know if anyone else can. Sorry for the long post and also I am aware that these players are goldmines IF you can adjust but I just can't pick the ranges.
