Typically I work 2 - 2 1/2 weeks per month. During this time I work a minumim of 8 hours per day, but a lot of times more. I work everyday -7 days a weeks. My entire focus in life is playing cards -I do nothing else, I don't talk on the phone, I don't watch movies, I don't socialize w/ friends. This may not work for everyone, or anyone else- LOL , but works for me.
Then on my 2 weeks off I totally get away from the Casino's, and pretty much everything to do w/ poker, with the expectption of staying current on some websites.
This 2 on, 2 off schedule makes for good balance in my life, it provides good income and plenty of time off.
im the same but i play for like 4 months straight non stop pokers 24/7 then take a few months off, my winrate steadily declines over the 4 month period but when i return i CRUSH!
