As the title says, drunk poker sucks! I just pissed away my entire roll due to alcohol! Oh well, at least I can get it back by playing smart when I haven't been drinking Big Smile

And yes, I drink in the middle of the week for this simple reason: I work weekends so the only days I'm off work is in the middle of the week. So don't judge me Tongue

I've never played poker drunk,....but I can just imagine that it wouldn't be good...! I was one of those drinkers that once I had ONE,....that was it,....I'm drinking until I fall down and pass out...! Sleepy...

....or get laid... Smile

I would imagine that if you're a nurse working at a hospital,...you'd have access to ALL KINDS of ethyl alcohol.... You could have a few nips at work...!!! Big Smile Thumbs Up

If i have just one sip of alcohol, i cant make any good decisions, let alone be a winning poker player. But, i do have substance abuse problems, so i stay away from booze in general. but i did find when i was boozing, i would have no fear and would just call call call call till i was broke. its funny now, but im taking poker more seriously now. poker is stressful, no way around it, u gotta take it, cant try to eliminate it with booze!

I actually play better with a little drink - not drunk but relaxed. I have more patience and I don't tilt as much (don't take bad beats so dramatically).

When I played one big live event, it was funny - we were all being served with Champagne when entering the room but I noticed I was the only one with a glass in my hands and people were looking at me funny. It's just a small glass, people, don't be so heavy. I played that game too tight, as it was my first live game, and probably could have used another drink.

I like to play relaxed too. Mostly I'm relaxed as a newt.

i have such an experience , i think it was a 3 - 4 years ago , when i just started to play poker on partypoker , well , all that i can say , that,s not a good idea , at the beginning i feel the power , i just want to check and get answer my question "can it help me" , the answer is - No , at the end i made always lots of wrong decisions , hard to say how much money i lost , being drunk at that time , keep your mind clear , for sure if you want to win in this game.

I drunk only once when I played live. The waitress every 10 minutes asked us if we would like anything to drink. The drinks were free, so everytime when I saw her I ordered a drink. Big Smile It was baylis with lots of ice! A lot of baylis. The other players drunk whiskey.

That was drunk poker! Big Smile

Well, as it turns out, it was a good thing I was drunk xD I decided to make a stupid move and deposit $20 from my cashed out money. I managed to get that up to $35 and then withdrew the $20 again. I then managed to get the $15 I had left up to another $35 so that's where my bankroll is at now!

Stupid move I know, but hey, it all worked out in the end, a total profit of the night at $15 Tongue

The times i played when i had drunk some beer or wine were not my most succesful sessions.
Made some bad calls or 3bet too much.
The only good thing was that i didn't care so much of the bad beats i had Big Smile

I never played online poker or live poker drunk but from what I heard most people get their roll busted, because they think they are on a roll and alcohol clouds their judgement.

I have been drunk a few times , and it was not a good sight, i played online games before, so when I was drunk i would login, becomes annoying and play like a donkey, most of time i pissed off people with my drunk ranting.

Anyway I guess if i played poker it would be the same, or sometimes when I am drunk i will just go quiet and do not talk for a while lol. Depends on when i am drunk. Anyway bad idea, just like do not drink and drive!!

In Bulgaria we have a company which is called "DRINK & DRIVE". They have a lot of drivers. If you are in a disco club for example and you are drunk, and your car is waiting for you in the parking, but you can't drive because you are drunk, just call the "DRINK & DRIVE" drivers and they come at your place and drive your car instead of you.

I think it was EUR20 per hour. They drive your car and you drink without problems.

Is this exist in other countries as well?

Never played drunk yet but I don't think it would be a good move. I lose enough when sober already. Big Smile

That's where you're going wrong.

It's a well known fact that sucking alcohol through a straw makes you drunk quicker. Confused

Yeah I don't generally play with alcohol in my system but when I have had a beer or wine or something small I find it relaxes me, to a good point whereby I'm nowhere near drunk but just chilled enough to take the edge off and play sensible poker - anyone playing drunk is an idiot.

If you have a fallout with the girlfriend then also quit....bad outcome

I just got completely tilted... I was up $6 for the day and then I started losing big pots with AA, KK, AKs with great flops. Everything started to fall apart so I just got so frstrated that I took y entire roll ~$20 to a table with .25/.50 blinds. I got it up to $39 and thought that I'd go for $50 or I bust my roll. Well, I got to $47 and got dealt AA, I get $10 in pre-flop with two callers. Flop comes A37, I bet $12, one guy raises and the other fold, I re-raise all-in, he calls. Turn is 8, river is 9. I flip over trip aces, he flips over TJ off-suit!! He hit a runner runner straight! So, my roll is now at $0, but I had hoped for ~$100 after that hand.

I'm gonna take a break for a wile and just play one freeroll a day (Sweden 50 Seat Frenzy) where top 10 takes a $15 tournament ticket. And since I already have one ticket, I'll get that in T$ instead. Gonna save them up for a month and then hit the MTT's I think...

You should have stopped at 47$ and call it a day.
After a point take the money and run. Dont even wait the big blind to reach you again, in order
to leave the table. Cause then you get dealt the AA and you know how the story goes.... Smile
Good luck in your way back to tables.
