Used to play a bunch online. 4 tabling heads up cash or full ring rush on full tilt. Last 10 years pretty much nothing online because of legislation issues and tougher games. Now I only get to play a homegame once a month. But I do have a lot of time to browse classifieds and planning my future poker room!

BTW any Norwegians know how to get money online these days shoot me a pm.

When people talk about online games like it's real poker, I hear:

Q. "How many times a month do you have sex?"

A. "Well, I watch PornHub on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fridays, then I go out on Saturday nights and am lucky if I pickup once a month....so I'd say about 17 times a month".

Lol, you are missing out if that's what you think.

I have been playing now for at least 65 years, at age 15 when I started. Maybe even sooner.

I've really only had a couple nights of poker in my life. I'm getting into it a bit more now, been playing online and learning more about the game. I enjoy math so I'm actually excited go get into that aspect of it. I am looking to get a home game started with friends and family, hopefully something like once a month.

I'm curious to know how much poker people play on average over the course of a year.

I have kept results the past 3 years and by no means play in a regular game

2019 - 4 nights of poker
2020 - 15 nights (this was mostly Pokerrrr2 with some old friends)
2021 - 8 nights (Pokerrrr2 fizzled out and this was mostly live games)

That's an average of 9 times per year over the past 3 years.

I would say back before having kids and in college days (15 years ago) it was closer to 45 to 50 nights of poker due to hosting a regular weekly game. Then when all the buddies graduated and moved away it died down to about 2 or 3 times per year for many years.

I'd like to get back to playing cards a couple times per month on average. If I go and play a tournament that is followed by a cash game, I still count that as 1 night of poker.
Assuming online counts then your top value is too low. I play around 3-4 times a week online and about once a month live. So around 150-180 times a year.

I voted more than 50, because I play online almost every day. It really doesnt count as a "night of cards" to me though, but it's your poll.

Live is a different story....I've only played live once this year.

Used to play about 40 time per year about once per week before Covid.

Live Poker Cut down to once every 3-4 weeks and Online Poker every other week after Covid

I think whether online counts or not may depend on how you do it. With me it's on a Mavens private site with a group of the same people. I consider all these people to be my friends. We exchange messages earlier in the day to set up the game. We get started around 8-9PM (depending on time zone) and we play for 2-3 hours. To me, that is absolutely a "night of poker."

This poll make me feel like such a degen……
You may feel like one, but the rest of us have no clue because the top number is too low.

Here's how it should have been set up:

Less than 6 ........ less than once every 2 months
7 - 24 ................. about once or twice a month
25 - 52 ............... up to once a week
53 - 104 ............. up to twice a week
105 - 208 ........... up to 4x a week
More than 209 .... more than 4x a week

You say the top number is too low but still accounts for 20.2% of the responses. So it still catches a decent number of people that voted.

Actually the top number accounts for 23.5%. My point is there is a big difference between someone who plays once a week and someone who plays every day, but your grouping puts them both in the same line of the poll.

I gotcha. My mistake. I haven't played weekly since college so I guess that skewed my though process when making the poll!.
