I love good coffee brewed in my Bialetti😍 also of course in longer sessions which can take the whole night.
I don't exactly like to eat a full meal during poker, I prefer making myself dinner and when I get hungry later during session I like to snack a little alongside coffee.
Mostly nuts and dried fruits mix😛
I can also drink coffee at night, but I prefer tea more.😉

Yes, I do eat a sandwich with cheese and ham.That's how I stay focused, otherwise hunger makes me think quickly and I definitely lose important chips.

Yes, I usually eat while I'm playing, especially fruit and drink water, this helps me think better about the game. There's a saying in my country, "an empty bag doesn't stay upright", which roughly means that when we're hungry we become more impatient.
Well, for sure, hunger can affect the game, and you should not force yourself to suffer

Avoiding eating heavy foods before and during the grind is important! Always try to eat light and energetic foods, this will improve your well-being and consequently improve your reasoning/performance on the grind.
Good advice👍

I prefer to drink a minimum of whiskey, it gives me energy.

I usually eat before playing, but I don't see a problem eating during the game if I felt hungry.

When there is a late night poker session I like to eat, I think that that way I relax, I like to eat more fruits, like apples or oranges.

I don't eat of snack most times when playing a night session. If its a super late session and looking to be a much longer one I may have a little ice cream but pretty muck I don't snack or eat in my late-night games.

I don't usually eat while playing but if the tournament is too long I have to eat at the end. And like many here, I love to play drinking beer, that makes me more patient while playing too.

I especially try not to eat, and if it comes to then only fruits, kiwi, orange, berries. I like to crunch nuts!
:)
No, I don't even think about food before night tournaments. I can only drink some water at the break of the tournament. Otherwise I concentrate on poker. In general, I have a good rule: " When you win, you can eat". :cool:

I also like to eat nuts and pumpkin or sunflower seeds during the game. It seems to me that this somehow calms me down and I play more patiently and with concentration. But sometimes, if I'm hungry, I just go to the kitchen and grab a plate of something more serious, like meat and potatoes :)

I kinda just eat when I get hungry, if it's when playing a session then I will have something that is easy and quick.

Having an empty stomach would be more off putting and distracting when playing so easier just to munch something.
