Little is known about Muskan Sethi’s daily routine, though in a 2018 interview, she did say that when she is at a live poker tournament she sticks to a very regimented schedule. This involves her waking up early, working out, eating healthy food and “grinding hard at the poker table” all day before going to sleep early.
When not taking part in live events, Sethi plays poker online so that she can continue to practice and hone her skills. Like many other athletes do, she also spends time reviewing the hands she’s had in past tournaments to see if she could have played differently.
