Rate the poker play in casinos?

How would you rate the poker play during the day on weekdays in casinos?

Its raining and im bored, and im in the mood for some poker. ive never played during a weekday, what type of players typically play from about 12-5 on weekdays? good/bad? im thinking maybe a lot of retired people?
or is it all weird addicts with no jobs?

The type of poker players you encounter during weekdays, especially during the daytime, can vary depending on the casino and location. However, some general observations can be made:

  1. Retirees: You may find a higher percentage of retired individuals playing during weekday daytime hours, as they have more free time and may prefer to avoid the busy evening and weekend crowds.
  2. Recreational players: These players might have flexible work schedules or days off, and they choose to spend their leisure time playing poker during less crowded hours.
  3. Professionals and semi-professionals: Some professional and semi-professional poker players may play during the day on weekdays to take advantage of the potentially softer competition.
  4. Addicts or problem gamblers: While it is possible to encounter players with gambling issues during daytime hours, it is important not to make assumptions or judgments about other players’ personal situations.

Overall, the skill level and playing style of players during weekday daytime hours can vary, but you may find the games to be somewhat softer than those played in the evenings and on weekends. As with any poker game, it is essential to observe and adapt to the players at your table to maximize your chances of success.


  1. I would agree with your analysis. You get a lot of retired folks, a much older crowd on average, but you also get the guys who play poker for a living. I have seen them both frequent poker rooms during the week.
    I personally love to go on the weekends and have much more success. I usually get the inexperienced college kid or people who are there to drink while gamble. The more they drink, the more their chips find a way into my stack.
    But you can do well during the week as well. It takes a little more patience and skill. Good luck!

  2. You get better older players who have been playing against each other for years. They are the guys to watch out for since they see the “fresh meat” at the table and work almost together to take your stack away.

    I’m sure there well be some “strange folk” at the place you play poker at also.

    Good Luck and may all your pots be monsters.

  3. It all depends on where you play, they can rate on any day or time from very good, to very bad. The time of the day does not matter, but for the most-part it is a lot of tourist and a few locals who play. I deal poker and i see no difference in the people who come out. The only thing is that there might not be as many people on a weekday in the early hours of the day, but the kind of people who play is the same.
