I think he said that because its such a slippery slope, once you do it once, if things dont go too bad, you are more inclined to do it again. Kinda like playing with fire.
For the record... I usually DO play with fire while playing poker. It has rarely let me down.
look at it as a way to let loose. as long as your playing small enough stakes where your really not losing anything like nl5 or somthin . everytime you play its discipline...you want to play hands you know u shouldnt and now you can do whatever you want. Im not saying do it alot because its just burning money but if you grind alot it could be a good experiment imo.
only tourney I have ever won was when I was drunk. Actually fell asleep in the middle of it, woke up and realized I'm still in - finished first an hour later.never played drunk again.
Vegas I had a 48 hour session going - was drunk twice ;-) fun times!
I'm up when drunk but I play even more abc when drunk.
I do the same- I actually get nitty when I'm drunk. I think I'm overcompensating - playing drunk is never good for your game though I lost plenty when I first started playing before I realized this. Now I just play MTT's with VIP points if I am drunk and feel the urge.
I get drunk as hell and play .5/10 live with my friends all the time ever since online poker has been gone in teh states. However, all of my friends suck at poker so I still have a big advantage. I'd never get hammered and go to a casino or anything.
so because you would play poker ONCE when drunk you would quit forever
1 time, only just that single one time
quit forever ?
does not compute...
I think this is just purely based on having enough discipline to not do stupid things like playing drunk, if you are trying to take poker serious. Being disciplined is the most important thing to me right now so I would never allow this to happen. That said, I doubt I would actually quit if it did somehow happen.
