Before a gaming session, I always prepare 1.5 cups of water, a liter thermal mug of hot tea, and some snack bars or chocolate in case of a long game. Fruits are also welcome - a banana, for example, almost replaces a full meal.

My choice of drinking or eating while playing poker depends on the environment and how I feel at the time. I sometimes enjoy a light drink to relax, but I also make sure not to overdo it to maintain my focus. As for food, I might snack on something light if I'm hungry, but I always try not to get too distracted from the game.

I like to play with concentration, but sometimes I eat or drink and watch or listen to something else.

When you play poker, do you drink or eat something? or just play focus
I mostly drink tea, juices or plain water. Sometimes on weekends, when friends come to visit me and I play poker, I can have a beer. I eat depending on my appetite, it can be a full dinner, or just sandwiches or other snacks.

ofcourse, it's impossible to not drink all the time if you play reguralry. I don't often drink coffee, tea, etc. while playing, but always drink water ofcourse.

About eating... If you play in long MTT for me personally it's better to not eat at all, it's better for concentration. But that's just me. If i don't play serious i can do whatever i want, even watching some videos and don't pay attention to the tables at all.

I prefer to eat first, then sit at the computer.

When I play poker I always like to eat something and also drink ice water in this hot time in my city.

It doesn't always happen that you eat and drink while waiting for a good hand. There were times when I couldn't play on time and it was a total distraction.
