Gladly I'm not a drinker so it doesn't affect my game at all. I have multiple friends who do drink and play the poker, they get wild and crazy, not the best of ideas for them.

I think if you drink a little, then it will not harm. After all, poker players also occasionally drink wine or whiskey when playing live tournaments. But the main thing is to know your measure

I don't drink alcohol while playing, because you can lose money) On the contrary, you need to play with such)

It has both effects. The positive is that it helps you loosen up and relax. The negative is that it makes you lack focus.

Not bad.I drink while playing with friends and family. I don't drink when I'm out grinding but do occasionally but not to often. Good luck.

In general, worst. But there are persons who manage very well their recreational habits.

Alcohol has a better effect on my game. Not because I use it, but because the one's I'm playing against use it.

I love playing late of Friday, and Saturday nights, after the drunk party goers get home, and figure they'll get a few games in.

Sorry if it sounds like I'm taking advantage of a situation, but their stupidity is not my fault.

Bad alcohol

I would like to ask people for the sake of interest how alcohol affects you and making your decisions when you play poker
When you play a game you have to look for the reason why you are playing it, i.e:
1. If you are doing it for fun.
2. If you are doing it to fulfil.
3. If you do it because it is like a second profession. By identifying these aspects it is understood that all the decisions that are going to be taken at every moment of the game are valuable and it is not a joke, so if it is only a game to relax from work then a glass of wine or beer would not be an impediment.

Regarding alcohol I only use it 70% for hygiene and protection against Covid19, in drinks I do not consume anything that contains alcohol ... Regarding decisions playing poker mmm I lean towards the probability table accompanied by observation and intuition in hope that the variance appears in the fewest possible hands. Greetings

Drink alcohol or not

if poker is work, then you don't need to drink alcohol
and if poker is a hobby and entertainment, then why not have a drink


Drink alcohol or not while playing: I think that being a mental sport, the ideal is to be 100% while playing, but hey, it depends on the aspiration you have in this sport, because for those who are merely entertainment, they can afford it sometimes. Greetings

I like the idea of a drink now and then but I'm to play at my optimal best, no alcohol or anything that will take away from or distract my focus!

Certainly alcohol would negatively affect my game. The reasoning would become slow and not objective, which would prevent more rational and complex thoughts.

I don't mind a beer during a session, but just one. Anything more will impair my judgement.

How Does Alcohol Effect [My] Game? Better or Worse?


I reserve drinking alcoholic beverages for very special occasions. Since I consider playing poker as work, it does not qualify as a special occasion. Therefore, I never drink while playing poker, so it has absolutely no affect/effect on my game.

The first thing that goes with drinking alcohol is, "judgement"
I was told this long ago. With that said I have won some of my largest wins while under the influence due to lack of judgement and piss poor BR management...LOL

no way alcohol can improve your game unless its your opponent who is the one consuming it lol

I tried to play with alcohol. Frankly, there is nothing good about it. You get overconfident and try to win every hand. In general, always play sober and you will be happy.

I’m sure it has a rather bad effect on everyone. Of course, luckily you can still win. Sometimes bad decisions work best. :)
