    Even if I do

    Please check my writing:

    I like to play bridge. I can play poker but I don't play it often. Even if I do(?) play it once in a while, then I will (would?) go back to bridge.

    Thank you

    There is no need to use do here.
    Even if I play it once in a while, (then) I will go back to bridge.
    Even if I played it once in a while, (then) I would go back to bridge.

    I believe you can use these two version.
    The then is an option.
    However, I cannot really tell you which one you should use...
    I guess sentence 1 is more suitable, because you have already played poker.

    Cheers!

    How about this?

    I like to play bridge. I can play poker but I don't play it often. Even if play it once in a while, I go back to bridge.

    Am I wrong?
    Thank you.
