re: Poker & In the ZONE!!!
I seem to be the opposite. Got the TV giong, the BBQ fired up, two other windows opened on line. Phones going, and a cold Alpine....all is good.
Tried the Ipod on too...the wife dioesn't like that though. She thinks I don't listen. too funny!

i have itunes on or the t.v. but the only way i get in the zone is if i'm getting alot of hands and there's action at my tables, it makes me focus. If i'm cold decked and there's not much action i can lose focus pretty quick, also some days it doesn't matter what happens or what cards i get i just can't get in the zone or focus no matter what!
