This is a discussion on How do you concentrate to play poker ? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I concentrate listening to classical music, calm me down and make me concentrate more on the game.
The issue of concentration on the game is not as simple as it seems. There are always many distractions. To concentrate, you need to be able to rest and switch to other things. But when you play, you multi-tabl - nothing should distract, no music, no people, nothing.
In different ways, if before the tournaments, then I try to spend time with my family, surround myself with everything that I like, and if during the tournament I listen to my favorite music and it gives strength.
I concentrate listening to classical music, calm me down and make me concentrate more on the game.
Ani Lorak's songs used to help. I don't use music right now. Inspiration comes naturally. Although over the years, I've come to the conclusion that it all comes down to luck. If there is a map, you only need to correctly manage a good situation.
re: Poker & How do you concentrate to play poker ?
I love listening to the sounds of the jungle around me, but it's not always possible... And when it does, I cover myself with music that relaxes me, but despite everything, it's damn.
Maybe it's time to record the jungle sounds and play them back to me when needed.

I always begin to play poker with a cup of coffee or some iced tea. They help me concentrate to play and I feel my actions is very clear and I can reduce my mistakes. Listening to music is also help me a bit but not much.

In order to concentrate on the game, it must be the only activity you are doing, you must be motivated by the desire to play and enjoy poker. Your integral health must be fine, you must rest and have clear objectives with your games.
I think it's still a question of motivation. when you take pleasure in playing and want to win. it is easier to stay focused. I like to put a video on youtube in the background of the documentary style or other to help me stay calm and to put into perspective when I suffer a bad beat.
Well ... at the beginning it was hard for me to concentrate ... and when I played only a tournament or a cash table it was also difficult for me to concentrate because there was not much action ... but now I play 4 cash tables and that generates lots of action so I'm always focused ...!
Me being alone with my cat. And watching something inconsequential on TV. Now, if my girlfriend is hanging around me, I will surely lose right away. She talks to me all the time and I can never concentrate. I have lost many hands due to her constant talk, I try to isolate myself from her words, but it is impossible!
I concentrate on listening to classical music, I calm down and make me concentrate more on the game.
I like to put good music that relaxes me when I am going to start a game session, it could be electronic music or relax music and soundtracks type, when I already have a little time I like to listen to hip hop or something that motivates me more.
It is very important to close all social networks when playing so as not to have distractions and to be focused on our game
