I do listen to music when I play at times. I have over a 100 songs I like downloaded to Spotify and use this as my music source. I hit random play and off I go to playing poker when I know it will be a long tournament -- in hopes I will last long anyways LOL
I only started recently and am still unsure whether i can stand the distraction of music or not ^^ I usually turn it off, but it somehow feels better to play with music on when i am in something like a full ring tournament
I usually kisten music that enhances my concentration. Nothing with lyrics, usually jazz. On rare occasions I put some music with lyrics. I think the most important thing to be successful in poker is concentration and the ability to be attentive to the information that is given to us at the table.
Before I start to study, I liked to play listen to some rock or something, but when I study I have to concentrate a lot.
I cant study listen to the music because I give my atention to the music and forget what I have to learn.
I use an app called Endel to generate ambient music based on various factors, such as my heart rate, the time of day, and the weather. I put it on in the background and let it do its thing. I get distracted if I put on anything more active.
I never listen to music when playing. I predicate my game on being able to read other players. Listening to other players is a big part of this. So if I were to listen to music it would take away an important aspect of my reading ability.
I used to listen to music but then I only found myself trying to change it to a song I want to listen to instead of focusing on the cards. Plus when you can't hear what is going on, that can be a problem.
Speak honey. Everything fine, my arrival? Very good night warrior. In my conception, listening to music during the game is relaxing and contagious, it helps to concentrate and extract the best files. Plus that's it, have a good night and great games.
If I listen to music, it is a good way to play and to focus now on the recommendation, it all depends on the type of music you like because I can recommend a genre that maybe I don't like and instead of helping you to do it, it will do the opposite.
Music is better then a movie or TV programme, if you play for more when an hour it is very hard to concentrate on the game, you have to switch your mind on something different. Music is the best way to relax. Nothing to agressive, nothing that would should increase your adrenaline ) something that make you calm and a better poker player)
