When you play poker, do you drink or eat something? or just play focus
When playing poker, some people believe that certain drinks or snacks can enhance their concentration or mood. For example, some may opt for coffee or energy drinks to maintain alertness, while others may prefer tea or water to maintain a calm state of mind. Regarding food, some believe that light snacks help avoid distractions, while others may choose larger meals to sustain energy. However, there are also those who prefer to play without consuming food or drinks, focusing solely on the game and strategy. It all depends on individual preferences and how each player manages their comfort during the game.

I would drink coffee. Just eat normally. I use a tablet so it makes snacking and main meals fine to eat while playing.

If I want to eat I eat, if I want to drink I drink. For me, poker is a game that can be easily combined with eating and drinking. Sometimes I drink beer, sometimes tea or coffee. I can eat whatever is available, from sandwiches to snacks :)

Hey All... I have been playing poker for 30years and have a situation that is in the gray area and wanting to hear your position on this if it was you.
I am all in with a player for 1k its the new dealers first hand and still getting settled in... I show him my set of 7s showing him as I keep cards in my hand keep them there as he looks and I ask him you see em...He says yes starts to pass his chips and I muck. The dealer wasn't controlling the game and just gathered the cards never verbally controlling our actions then started pushing chips 2 him.... Then guy lays his pocket queen's face up..... the whole room hears me at this point. I've never lost my cool and am very easy going because im getting cheated with dishonest actions. Im a Marine and Fireman and took allot to hold back physically...So I have other player confirmed he saw my hand and heard him say u see my hand... Floor rules to give him the money....Gaming commission is investigating got the call today....

Would like to hear your well thought out answers that can either help me have my beliefs upheld w Commission or reasons why I have no claim to the win...

It depends on the session time. If I play for more than 2 hours I tend to eat.

I usually play tournament poker and during every break I go to the kitchen to eat something, and after I quit smoking, I started going to the kitchen a lot more often.

Yes, when I play poker I like to eat and drink something but without alcohol. I love playing background music or some streams from professional players.

I play for hours when doing well. So i eat, drink and smoke as normal. I even clean up, wash dishes, do, laundry, attend to a child and stay clean.
I can't put life aside for poker and i don't have enough free hours to play an overly engrossed games of poker.
I enjoy as much as i can of it.

before I start to play poker , i eat as much as i can , because if i eat during the poker game I relax and lose focus , so i eat before and at the begining of poker i try not to make any important decision that could influence my game in the next 2-3 hours when my focus is very high

When I play, I prefer to drink coffee.
To have a clear mind
