Default Best time to play online poker?

When is your best time of day/day of the week to play online?

My stats tell me I'm well in the black on nights and weekends, and in the red overall during the afternoons, eastern standard time. My guess is that more loose players (read: drunk) are playing nights and weekends EST, and my type of game just does much better during these times. I'm tempted to decrease my daytime play and increase night time play. Or, I might even play at Sun (mostly europeans) during my afternoons (their night time), and Bodog (mostly americans) during my evenings. Is this crazy or do other people see similar patterns here?

I have the most success late at night when I am drunk, playing against players trying to take advantage of drunk people. It's true, don't laugh...

Well, just looking at the % of players seeing flops and average pot seems to show that evenings are best. Sum total of two weeks observation, however.

I also had the feeling that the wannabee poker players mainly play in the evening after going to work, while the good players stopped waisting time going to work, and also play in the afternoon, making it a bit more tricky.

But then again, one man's afternoon is the other man's evening I suppose.

I played online poker while drinking heavily and it was great. I was crushing a competitive 0.25-0.50 limit game at the time. I got sucked out once and I litterly applauded my opponent in my room. I was legitamately happy for him. I ended the night up $3
