Poker Raises Testosterone!

Hello boys and girls

Recently I went back to playing heads up poker full time so I was interested how this can effect my lifting and rugby league. Guess what… http://www.springerlink.com/content/7322182j2708kv4k/

Here is a link to a full study http://www.springerlink.com/content/7322182j2708kv4k/fulltext.pdf

…just wanted to share this with you as this site give me a lot of useful information. Please don’t ever play poker out of your spending limit. Ever.

ps. site administrator, you could add Serbia to a country list on a sign up page… people live there too…

Interesting, thanks for sharing.

And perhaps not so surprising, given the kind of animal that is heads-up poker.

I usually feel like my test levels are pretty high when I poke her.

Yeah what does sitting down for four of five hours, swilling beer, smoking, and eating potato chips do for you?

Thats my experience with poker anyway.

I drink water or diet soda, and dip while playing poker. :slight_smile:

No wonder you weigh 300lbs…

What do you play? Bankroll?

I guess it is legal where you live?
