Dear Dr Tom, Everyone I speak to says never play drunk, but I seem to play better when I’ve had a few pints. What’s the deal with that? Jon,Brighton
Dr. Tom says:Jon,In order of likelihood, your alcohol advantage can be explained by:1. Faulty memory – you just forgot how much you actually lost by the end of the night. My advice: keep careful records.2. Variance – the poker gods are not prudish about drinking round the baize and will dole it out to you for a bit, just to nark the sober players. My advice: keep separate records for sober and drunk play and have a look after three months.3. Relative advantage – you play worse after a drink but your opponents play even worse. My advice: don’t play on the internet on a weekday afternoon.4. You actually do play better drunk. My advice – find out what it is you do when drunk and do it better sober. Cheers!Dr TomGot a question for Dr. Tom? Email him on email@example.com
