The very next hand after my AA got cracked by Player9's J5o. I was on horrible losing streak, so pissed and a bit drunk.
Even after this miraculous win I kept chasing loss and eventually got bust. I should have stopped playing there!!! So stupid!!!

UK poker players also tend to drink more than the weekly suggested amount. 23% of the 315 poker players who were surveyed admitted that they drink more than the recommended weekly consumption of alcohol. The only groups of gamblers to drink more than poker players were slots fans, 24% of which consume higher levels on a weekly basis. Big Smile
