Depends on the player. Im sure to some it helps their game. I like to toke a lil while playing at home, or with friends. Relaxes me, gets me in the zone.
I've never played live at a casino. Drinking while playing would screw me up. I'd be broke in no time.


that's what i'm talkin about...:canabis:

I very much support the idea of drinking as heavily as possible while playing poker.




I hope all my opponents do so. :p

You guys rock - what a great forum! :)

I don't really get drunk and play poker, but I don't mind if my online opponents believe I'm drunk. I have even been known to act tipsy at a live poker table while drinking regular Cola.

Not yet 21 so cant drink in the casino when I go there. Have played online a few times while drinking and it hasnt worked out too well. The drunk people at the table are usually pretty funny but they tend to suck out a lot more often.

Drinking and playing poker don't mix with me, I have enough trouble winning when I'm sober. Too many drinks makes me lose my inhibitions and my money!

I'm a strong supporter of buying rounds for everyone at the table as often as possible.

I stick with Coke on the rocks myself and let em' think it's a mixed drink to keep suspicion down whilst they get hammered. Is that wrong?

I'm on the fence on this one and could go either way.
1. Drinking in moderation while playing poker makes one play a little looser than normal and at times I'm all for it as I had one of my best games half cut.
I had nursed a 26 of crown over a course of 5 hours while in a tourney and placed second in a low buy-in tourney for a little over $240.
2. Making a pig of yourself while playing poker can spell disaster for your BR.
I had been playing ring games and decided to start drinking and lost around $40+ on a .05/.10 table over a course of (I'm guessing here because I honestly can't remember)3 hours.

So IMO I would say disciplined drinking is alright while playing poker.

i dont drink alcohol while im in the casino. i prefer to keep a clear head. i have however seen more than one person who will not only drink but be drunk or i should say appear to be drunk in some cases and still play great. not for me though.

I personally love to drink while I play.I do believe it helps table image if you don't go to far.I am 6' 5" and almost 300 lbs. and I handle a pretty fair amount of alcohol well and love the fact that people think that anyone with a drink in thier hand is a drunken ATM.It just depends on the person.Some can handle it some can't.Someone mentioned smoking bud while playing and I couldn't handle that.I would be too worried about ordering a cheesburger and fries to even think about playing cards lol.I have won a lot of money while drinking and playing so it doesn't hurt me personally as long as I don't get smashed.To the people that believe you can't be a winning player while drinking,I would suggest watching the wsop final table the year that Scotty Nguyen won it all.As a matter of fact you can see him in many games drinking,beer usually.It simply depends on the person.Having said all of that I would agree that it does affect the vast majority of people in a negative way when it comes to poker and many other things in life and those are the people I like to play against the most.Anyway gotta run.Playing at bodog in few minutes and yes I will be drinking some brews.Good luck!!! Holdem.
