Alcohol and Poker

This past weekend was a pretty crazy one for me. It was my girlfriend’s last weekend in the States with me so we celebrated pretty heavily (please excuse the lack of posts), but I did manage to get some poker in late at night after a few drinks…

The challenge of playing poker while drinking is mostly preflop hand selection, calling too many bets, and fishing for any outs possible. I was smart enough not to get myself involved for too much money and actually ended up playing Ben heads up for $5 a few times (I won).

If you have enough money and you aren’t playing while drunk and upset, but simply having a little bit of fun with friends, then I dont’ see much problem in it. It is when someone is playing drunk and decides to play a higher limit than they’re used to that people start to get in trouble. But next time you’re drinking and want to play online, drop me a line and I’ll be sure to play with you!

Good luck!

I've been playing poker for almost four years now (well before it was legal for me, woops!) Besides poker I enjoy playing the guitar and I'm very enthusiastic about pursuing Dentistry as a career. I'm currently at The Ohio State Univeristy studying Microbiology, living with three of my close friends. I'm dating a lovely girl from Australia and am looking forward to the oppurtunity to study abroad over there as well.
