re: Poker & Poker in the Background
Good post Benji. As you have admitted to being guilty of putting "poker in the background," I as well have been guilty of this too... As I'm sure 99.8% of us have, at one time or another... I try my very best to limit surfing or other things during a session, and prefer to do them at break. But it doesn't always work out that way. I do feel like it has cost me valuable info in the past, but so be it. I also wouldn't say it's an even compromise, having the ability to do other things while playing. Though it is nice to be able to multi task, I feel it has cost me good opportunities, and I just go into auto pilot. Not fully absorbing the entirety of the table dynamic..
