Does anyone else have a certain routine they like to go through before playing poker. Like for me before i play i take a really hot shower then get something to eat. Then i have a special mixed CD that i listen too while taking a couple bong hits. I find this helps me center my focus on the task of playing good poker.

Lol, if i tried this (the bong) i'd probably would get so paranoid and have to lock myself in the bathroom. The stuff just does not suit me, sends me a bit crazy.
The only thing I do to get ready is gather a few 500 dollar chips before I leave the house put them into my pocket and away I go. They come in handy.;)

to right,

everything you eat effects your mind.

Sugar for example, that you eat everyday. (or pig fat)

stop eating sugar for 2months then start again. That effects you mind. Just as the diet you does. Somepeople go to fast food places and get real fat. That has more effect on there mind than any amount of pot or skunk could.

As for the topic of the post.

Depends if i have anything to smoke. lol

i was watching something about Jennifer Harmon eating a special diet of certain foods which help her play better, supposedly she ate different dishes for different purposeses

Not really and no and it's a free country is it? Ok then, go and sit outside a police station smoking your bong in your "free" country. Moron - I couldn't give a shit about you frying your brain with that junk, but you've started a bullshit thread just so you can show everyone just how (supposedly) "cool" you are.

your an idiot! i could care less about what people think about me and the simple fact of the matter whut i do in my personal life is none of your business, i asked a simple question about peoples routines then stated what my routine was, and you said not really for drinking alcohol, so you do drink so why don't you shut your mouth instead of making yourself look like more of an azz for being an ignorant hypocrite

Online or live? I'll answer both.

Online - Get into some confortable clothes and go to the bathroom so there are no "interruptions."

Live- Again, go to the bathroom and sometimes I do some stretching. You going to sit at a table for a while so it's best to loosedn up before you get a strain neck or something.

Bang my head against the wall several times so I don't do it later trying to figure out why that person stayed in to catch runner runner to beat me.

Other than that, not much as far as routine I use.

No routine here. I just need to make sure I'm ready to concentrate and not play too loosely. Cats on the desk is OK... husband in the room is not. Otherwise I can have music or no music, eating or not, dressed or in pajamas. I do try to be fully dressed for live play. :D

Do bong hits help? Depends on how many. ;)

If it's a live game I like to have a couple drinks to calm me down. Online I could care less. I can always hit sit out if I need something.

i didnt read tribals thread and thougt that he wrote what he wrote to appear cool . Since pretty much people smoke and i like to smoke myself sometimes , i can understand that his routine just might feel good and hes having good results with it .

I really think people should care less about smokers and more about hard drugs or corruption in politics . They get criminalized for doing something more healthy than alcohol .

Your reaction , rob , sounds more if u have a problem with smoking or beeing tolerant about others .

I mean lets take the "wich beer do you prefer" thread . For me this thread was more "pseudo - cool " than tribals statement .

Thread seems fine to me, and nobody else has complained. Ever get the feeling you're overreacting? ;)

Re: topic, I don't really do much... the nearest I get to a routine is always going for a cig during tourney breaks.

i've posted this before in another thread, but here's my pre online poker routine:

1. wipe all the finger marks, left by my teenage offspring, off the screen of MY laptop

2. hoover out all the bits of crisps and other food remnants they have managed to lodge in the keyboard

3. clean all the sticky residue, from the drinks they seem unable not to spill, off the table

love 'em

You can tell the psychie of the poor englishman. lol. Ignorance is great in poker competition. Give me a table of people who act out of ignorance everytime.
I always found bongs help. Id be playing for 2hrs in mtt and i just break the bubble and its the 2hr break. Perfect time for a bowl. calms the nerves a little as i start to bluff more.


I think the other guy only had a go at you to be cool.

routines.. online don;t have on except keep a pack of cig's near by for when those idiots who call with 3/6 os and hit a straight on the river after i raised teh blind like 4X.... casino.... always take the same route there... take the "lucky" route to the floorman always use the same initials... (i dont use my name) sit down close my eyes until they bring me my chips... wait for the BB... and then start playing.... in between... if i win a big hand i'll fold my next hand no matter what i have.. folded pocket A's once and saw a guuy make a straight on the river with 5/8 os if i was in i woulda had a set of ace's... and every hour i'll get up smoke a cig drink and beer and go back =D

I just try to be sure the kids aren't planning to be around playing what passes as music nowadays.:eek:

Having a "shot of courage" and a "bowl of patience" handy always helps too.:D

Just a friendly tip. If you want to rip a tard that is one thing, but to classify a nationality on this site is not very smart.;)
