Pack a day here, too.

I have bad ADHD, but haven't taken meds in a while. I just find when I take meds, I get more "calm", you could say and can actually pay attention when not >4 tabling. Like, I don't feel the need to surf all the forums and read random ****.

Prob +EV for my bottom line, I'd tend to think..

Re: ITT we talk about bananas

Has anyone ever started laughing for basically no particular reason, or just laugh at a super stupid reason, like the cards on the flop or something, and then start uncontrollably laughing about the fact that you were laughing? At a live tournament? When it's your action?

I burst out laughing uncontrollably for no reason at all.

I thought I was the only one.

I don't understand when people say this. I generally feel pretty good when I take adderall. Then again I may or may not have ADHD and am prescribed 60/month, weeeee

hahaha awesome


i found that these sort of laughing fits (in general) stopped happening for me at some point, which is probably about when i decided to quit eating bananas. but im thinking about this happening at a live tourney and its really making me laugh.

anyway i think they probably dont effect the play of an everyday banana-consumer a great deal, because they are used to thinking/functioning while under the influence anyway. for me, as a non-daily user, sometimes i think its nice to do very occasionally, because i'll think really hard about very creative plays that i normally wouldn't consider, but generally they make me a lot lazier (so ill play really tight and try to fade marginal situations). so i normally think it probably lowers my expectation and dont really do it anymore.

prolly sums up my thoughts best. its not like maro is gonna give you any superhuman poker abilities. but it makes stuff like grinding 10 hours in a row or taking simultaneous beats or getting berated by idiots easier to deal with. also i won't dwell on the negatives as much like past hands i botched. tournaments can be a real grind and so monotonous, i think i just have a better outlook and enjoy poker more/get irritated less when i'm blazed.

i do not like the way i feel on adderall. im racy, and, i dunno, just dont like the way i feel, at least not if im trying to chill out. that being said, adderall is the best drug ever. i am such a productive human being on it and for like sundays etc it is the best thing ever. for me its that white in pill form, like the same exact thing

at this "smoker game" my friend James who is a loose fish donkey etc, puts the straddle on and checks his option. He 2 barrels into the tightest player at the tbl with 72o and by the turn he put the kid all in on a K 10 5 5 board and the tight kid tanks with K10 and finally calls. James insta mucks but before the river card he notices he might have a flush draw so before the dealer mucks his cards he squeezes them and I see the 72o (he had no fd) but after I saw his hand I started bursting out laughing and I'm just str8 geeked out of my mind, I seriously laughed for 8 minutes str8 at the tbl covering up my mouth putting my brim low then finally went outside so I could stop thinking about it because I couldn't control myself.

meh i guess u had 2 b there but hella funny

Re: ITT we talk about bananas

I smoked pot for many years. It starts out good for most then if you smoke enough of it then it turns on you eventually in many ways. When I was smoking it I would rationalize the benefits, but now I realize that was all a bunch of bull.

The biggest thing for me was the antisocial behavior. That took a while to fester and surface, but everyone I know who smoked it longterm eventualy developed this problem.

Health issues are another story of course. Some time after I quit my mom died of lung cancer (cigs) and I watched her die right in front of me and let me tell you it wasn't pretty.

But yeah, when smoking potwhile playing poker I saw some benefits and also some disadvantages. I used to have some pool hustling buddies who were big stoners and pot seems to help more with that game in terms of nerves and concentration. For me, pot made me make at leas tone huge spewy play a niht at poker so quitting was +EV. I can definitely believe how some oeple miht benefit, however, but the stuff is pretty addictive and my health/sanity is worth more than money.

IMHO

Re: ITT we talk about bananas

Deep in a Borgata 10k either in January or last Fall(Day 3 iirc) :

I have my usual 20 bb's, when an old dude raises in EMP, I look down at AK and obv shove. Young asian dealer announces "ARRRRRINNNN" really loud and really Engrishy. I do one of my really big smiles trying to hold in my laughter since, you know, I am risking my tournament life and some old dude is giving me the stare down. Youngish dude across the table from me goes something like "Heh, she just said arrrin" and I completely lose it, old dude tanks for some more and eventually calls with AQ, Q on river.

Re: ITT we talk about bananas

in amsterdam masters recently i came back from dinner break with like 11bbs at 75/150 so id obv decided to consume dutch bananas.

something like the 2nd hand back, utg limped super super nit makes it 900, button calls with like 14k effective, hu to flop J73. goes bet 3k, make it 6k, instashove instacall pfr snap turns over AA like who wouldnt have guessed. button has JJ. pfr was shocked to be behind even tho he had the nittiest image ever and just randomly overbet cos he had the AA. river A and the super nit starts fistpumping like crazy before raising two triumphant clenched fists above his head, and looking to the heavens. it was too much and i couldnt stop giggling for next couple of hands because it was so awesome.
