Distractions to help wait out the wet paint
I get bored waiting for decent hands. I get really really really bored waiting for good hands. Someone keeps telling me that playing poker is supposed to be like watching paint dry. (I tell someone to shut it often, btw).
Yesterday, playing the $5 cardschat, in the first hour in particular, I was getting testy constantly folding and getting total crap cards. I suffered through it and it paid off very well, but the point is, I get bored and with me, with boredom comes stupidity.
SO.....I'm wondering what everyone else does to help them get through.
