Whether you're traveling to your friend's game or headed to the casino, what do you pack in your backpack when you're going to play poker? I'm interested to see what you all bring with you to the games.

Granola bars, whatever fruit I have laying around, water, and a flask of whiskey.

Yogurt bars, gum, power brick, phone charging cables, headphones, hand lotion, hard sanitizer, kleenex, eyedrops, at least 1 bottle of water, excedrin, asst card covers, reading glasses, seat cushion (sometimes), laptop (depending on where im going and for how long), probably a lot more useless stuuf that's been in the bottom of the backpack for months (it's like a woman's purse).

Lmao I mean I will too, but I will also admit to bringing my own glass on more than 1 occasion if I’m bringing a bottle too

I usually have been going only to the casino lately since all my local home games broke up. I used to hit one of the underground Poker Room in NYC and I had also gone to a local legion hall a few times which was having a tournament with a huge cash game.(They had a cashier booth) Both places I went to got robbed hours after I left them and in the NYC Poker Room a professor had gotten killed when one of the robbers dropped a shot gun and it went off. Ever since then I pack a backpack and I come prepared Please see below.

JK all I usually am not allowed to go for extended sessions lasting more than 6 hours so I just bring wireless head phones and maybe a Red Bull or two. Anything else like Coffee or food I can get it at the casino. I just wanted to present some comic levity here. At home games we used to bring scratch offs and those would be our bounty chips for someone felling someone.

You can never have enough GUNS.

This is in the Front pockets of the backpack. ATM fees are killer and my money just does not feel safe in a bank. What does FDIC even stand for? How can I trust something that has stickers on it's buildings that say F DIC.
