Grinding through the Micros in 2014

New mum who loves knitting, crochet and poker!

This subject might get me banned from PS blog but I can't resist writing about it since a few of us were chatting about it at the poker table last night.

We were talking about playing online and how my friend likes to be able to sit out from time to time and get things done around her house whilst playing online poker. She then sheepishly admitted to me that she had taken her laptop into the bathroom once and played poker whilst on the toilet. She's quite conservative and was embarrassed about taking the laptop to the toilet and couldn't believe she was admitting it to us....

Well...that got the table chatting about all the crazy things we've done while playing poker online...

As mum to an 11 month old I freely admit to breastfeeding my daughter while playing poker. Especially with a need something to do whilst sitting there for ages during those early months, it can be so tedious.....It worked out really well, except for the time when my daughter reached over once, bashed my laptop trackpad and folded my AA pre-flop..but that's another story.

I've also cooked so many family meals while playing online poker, I've lost count...Mainly a tourney or two.. It's just too easy. Set up the laptop on the kitchen bench chop, stir and play...

I saw a guy playing live in a pub the other day with his ipad on his lap, playing live and playing online at the same time - In a self dealt tournament too!

Finally, someone last night did admit to having used a bucket in their study to avoid the whole leaving the computer issue when deep in a tournament........Needless to say, there was a mixed response......

I'm interested to know what other crazy things people have done whilst playing online.... I'm sure there are some very funny stories!
