the day you swore youd never play drunk again thread


Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this thread has already existed, but I think some of the funniest/craziest/most enlightening stories come from that one special drunken night. That night you put your whole bankroll on the table and couldn't tell if you were playing hold em or go fish. I read a lot of stories from the pro's having experienced this early in their career, and probably 95% of drinkers on this board have the same night. So the point of this thread, is I would like everyone to share "that night". How much money did you have in the morning? Did you remember any of it? And what do you do now to combat it from occurring. My night came about a year ago. I had just gotten home from an open bar wedding at around 1:00am (only bad things could happen at this point). I can't remember most of the details obviously. The night started at low limits because I knew I was drunk, but as I lost to seemingly bad beats, I eventually ended up on a 10-10 NL table and lost maybe $800 or so out of my $2000 bankroll. Angry and needing the money back, I went to the 25-50 limit game. Everything goes blank at this point in my memory banks. But I woke up down only $250. Phew. The next day I swore never ever to play drunk, not even for small stakes. It can only lead to the destruction of my roll. My girlfriend has strict instructions to stop me from playing drunk by any means possible, including but not limited to unplugging the computer or beating me to death with a blunt object. Never again will this happen to me!!Looking forward to reading others stories!Yoda

Ok yes I know. This topic has been done to death, and we all know better. But damn if I didn't lose a bundle yesterday playing pissed. I started off great but after about 7 beers my play got sloppy, my reads off (mistaking pot stealling for executions of traps etc). Oh well, some of us take longer to learn than others.

Obviously when we all play, we play to maybe make some money, learn a few things up our hand count etc... but this weekend I am going to Vegas, play the lowest limits I can find and drink 'till I puke, just chip spew left and right. If you want to know where I will be so you can take some chips off me, look for the drunk guy trying to fondle the felt on the table and the dealer at the same time :club: :wink: .

lol, good luck with that. Remember the one important thing about playing wasted. When you get AA don't do the drunk thing and try to trap people, just go frickin apesh*t like you were the last 18 hands and rake it in!

I came home a month ago from the bar and decided that if I can crush the 25nl tables, the 100nl woul be no problem. I remember reloading more than a few times untill 1 hand when I went on a wild draw.Donkey ! I hit my draw and broke even on the night. I swore never again, but I continue to get wasted on Wed in the Neg-O.

i got really drunk in reno and stumbled into a 4-8, 2 dollar big blind game. i'd probably had about ten beers at that point and i'm only about 145 pounds. i played really tight and ended up about 16 dollars ahead. not exciting, but nothing is ever as good as the stories of the shadow on the radio.

hmm, let's see. When I was regularly playing 3/6 and 5/10, i decided one night after a bottle and a half of wine that playing in the 15/30 six max game at full tilt would be a good idea. It really was, for about 2 seconds. I cracked aces with 45o in my first hand. Then i proceeded to make an ass out of myself and lost almost every penny I had on that site. I think I dropped like $800 in about half an hour. Drinking and poker rules. And I'm never doing it again.

This thread reminded me of a low-limit game I stumbled into at the Monte Carlo after spending five days in Vegas last August. I wound up significantly up for the night, but found out about the type of foolishness that can happen if you drink too much at the table (and possibly lost the chance to take down a real monster pot):That casino will serve you their microbrew while you play, and after drinking all day, I was enjoying as much of their Stout as I could drink. At about 5 am (8 hours into the session), I lost my capacities and woke up staring at AA. I raised with it and apparently stopped paying attention since, when the action came back to me, I flipped em over (thinking no one had called) and prepared to scoop the pot. In the real world, there were 3-4 players still left, but the dealer graciously let me play my hand.The flop comes: K-K-10I bet out and three players fold, but the guy on my right raises it up. I call, and fourth street is a 6, so I bet and the guy raises again. Knowing I'm beat and deserving it, I call, and the river spikes another A! I bet out again, and the guy of course folds showing K-10. We had a good laugh (as we had been for awhile; it was generally a drunk table), but I'm sure he wasn't too happy...

The other night I was hammered and came home and began playing at GamesGrid for the first time. Like everyone else drunk as a monkey, I put every dime I had on the site on the table. Luckily for me the game was amazing, there were a few people with over 10,000 and just making an azz out of themselves. 8 handed in a raised pot, multiple people going all in with garbage, etc. I played super tight and somehow ended up over $1500 for the night. I was very satisfied with my win and beleived I had found my new home. Unluckily for me I didn't notice or didn't care what the FC letters meant that are right before the table limits. My amazing drunken poker prowess earned me a nice load of Free Chips, WooooooHooooo! I do believe this drunken stooper ranks up there with anyone who lost their entire bankroll in one night.

I've been there several times, and although I play well (even better than normal) when I am slightly buzzed and drinking say a beer every hour, when I go over board I suck.Most I lost was about $1,600 playing 2-5 NL, it was a wild game and after being up $1000 I went on a losing and tilt spree. I remember losing 2 hands in a row worth a total over $1,400, on one I flopped the nut straight and a guy boated with all the money already in when the board paired on the turn. The other was the exact opposite, I flopped a set of 6's and the guys 2-5 off suit held up with the flop being 3-4-6. Unreal you say, well that got me on tilt even harder and I imploded. Should have just left the table and slapped myself.Hope this makes some of you feel a lil better about your last drunken session.

When I'm in Vegas, I consider it my vacation and will play really drunk, just low level crap like 3/6. I usually only play online when I'm at home, and fortunately I've grown out of my drinking alone part of life.

Just accept that you're going to do it again. I plan for it. I keep a little bit of money at a couple of sites, and play those when I'm hammered. That way I get to have happy fun poker goodness but I'm not risking my bankroll.Oh well, time to start drinking.

Playing at Gamesgrid...there is your first mistake. That site makes me want to vomit. Ooops, I think I just changed the thread subject. Go on with the drunken stories
