For example, I watch a variety of videos, so without straining myself I can play well in the tournament. Although there are times when the pot is too big and pays all the attention to give poker (a hand for a big pot). And what do you do while playing poker?
If I am multi-tabling(more than 2 for me) I will just have my music playing or a steamer with good music. I won't be watching though, just listening and then popping in chat during breaks.
Sometimes I just feel like popping up a single table or two and will watch YT videos between action.
If I had my computer for the man cave I would have it setup where I could watch MLB network on TV as well as my music. Next year I plan to have my man cave computer setup ready for streaming on Twitch. That is the goal anyway.
I like to watch football or other sports transmissions. I sometimes read some article or listen to music as well. Of course in the final straight or in moments that need more concentration, I turn everything off and focus on the game.
Hello. Along with playing poker, I also often watch videos or movies, but not through tension. And just because the poker tournaments last a long time. 4-5 hours look at the poker table is not impressive. But when there is a mood, it's interesting to talk about opponents and understand them.
if I play more than 4 tables then I only have music on the background, and if it's 1-3 tables, then you can turn on the movie or run parallel to some kind of game, for example, Hartstone, it has a time reserve for the move and so you can play in and follow the poker situation
When for me the game runs poorly on small bets, I watch a movie or series, but when the game raises a big bet I put all the pauses and I need to make a good decision in the game, but most of the time I focus on the whole poker game!
I like to play on my smartphone, in this way I can watch TV, walk around the house, eat some thing, talk with my girlfriend, I usually get more concentrated when I am in the late stage of tournament, in the beginning of tournaments freeroll I don't play almost all the hands, some games I prefer wait the game turn into a little more competitive, when some weak player's had lost.
I feel I need other things to look at, watch or read when playig online. When I play live games, I dont do any type of multi tasking, I like to watch the players as they bet, fold etc. Online on the other hand, I need some type of stimulus or I might get bored and play a hand i normally would not.
