I do this thread to see what they eat in each country since we spend so many hours in front of the screen (online)
and sometimes there is no time, or when you put sitting out and they give them premium hands. as AA -KK :eek:
In my case, in argentina we drink mate and I make a sandwich of anything, even noodles hahaha

comida jugando poker

Hi. Yesterday I started a tournament at 6.30pm. and ends at 1.30 today. I played 7 hours. and at 9pm. I had a chicken and avocado sandwich. that's what I eat in long games. a sandwich with a soda. And if I have gone to the bathroom and when I return I am absent with AA, KK, or QQ. Now I solved it, I bought a note book- sometimes it happens to me hahaha

I start playing at 1 pm, right after lunch. During breaks, I usually drink coffee and water and sometimes a sandwich. I do this until the end of the section. I dine at the end.

When I play long sessions I usually drink coke and eat chips and chocolate in my 5 minute breaks.

I don't eat a lot, just some biscuits and sometimes a small sandwich if I am really hungry. Most of the time I will drink water, tea, or coffee.

I haven't encountered this problem yet (being new to online and having never gone 3/4 hours in a game) but surely if you prepared something beforehand eg pasta, noodles you could use the break to go and make something quick with your preprepared food of choice

Good luck out there

Hi.
In the morning I prefer coffee, in the evenings I like to drink tea, and I always have cooked sandwiches that just need to be warmed up. But in general, I very rarely play poker for more than 6-7 hours in a row.
Good luck.

I usually try to have lunch before starting my poker sessions ... and I prepare a lemon or orange drink and have it in the refrigerator to be drinking during breaks ... I also have a snack and coffee ready ...!

hi, there is always food in my refrigerator, I just need to warm it up and boil tea during the break. I don't see this as a problem, since the food can be prepared in advance, before your poker session.

I play in the evening usually so i try to have dinner just before the MTT starts. This way i am sure that i will not get hungry in the next few hours till the MTT is finished.

I have a wife who is always ready to cook for me. Moreover, I actually never cook myself.

Yes, I agree with many, I don't want to miss a premium hand like AA or AK. I found such a solution for myself, maybe someone will come in handy: at the end of each hour there is a 5-minute break, you can safely warm up food in the microwave and eat it on a laptop.
Use this.

At my Local Pub they used to serve Food at the mid break, usually Sausage and Fries, or something similar, but as I was always busy going around the tables changing smaller chip denominations for larger chips, by the time I finished there was nothing left, so I was left with a bag of Crisp's from behind the bar.
Some of the bigger events I went to had a kitchen, where you could order food from, but the demand at the break was so big it took ages for the food to arrive, and eating at the table is a pet hate of mine, I cannot think of anything worse than greasy fingers touching the cards.

When the fun Stops, STOP!

Very cool question. I particularly like popcorn and coffee.
It will be nice to see how people like it.:D

You are pretty hard core if you are playing 10 + hours in a row.

I am guessing you may be a candidate to digitize yourself and plunge into Zuck's metaverse. You would never have to eat again, and theoretically could "live" forever !

I try to be prepared, make myself coffee and prepare something to eat, but when I play poker I usually forget that I wanted to eat until the break and then remember that I actually wanted to eat and then usually eat something quickly. Most of the time I drink coffee and / or water

Lol, your in your own home and a fridge full of food,don't see much of a problem there, I try to avoid the messy drippy foods while playing, usually it's a bucket full of coffee ,ya the other thing to avoid is cheezies ,they gum up the keyboard :D
