This is a discussion on Do You Think Your Environment is Important for Your Play? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; where you playing poker? bedroom, kitchen, living room or outdoor public, park, lake and go to the zoo :D
For me; i love sunshine so
Yes, I believe that the environment very much affects the quality of the game, well, at least for me. I prefer to be quiet and not be distracted by anything around me, to be alone with the game and completely immerse myself in it. That's my priority, and I think it's better to relax on the beach than to play a game.
Every citizen has his opinion which is the most correct !!
Of course it has to be a comfortable and pleasant space that you feel good when playing, because we can spend many hours playing sitting down and we should be as comfortable as possible, also in an environment or space where you feel more comfortable.
Positive should be a place where you feel comfortable, you can relax and thus focus on the game. On the contrary, I have obtained better results in hostile places such as during working hours where you have to be aware of other things, however, I am better than at home
For me it doesn't matter where I play, especially with the ease that the cell phone gives you to play poker, I'm happy with that.
I can play in several places, of course I prefer to play at home on the couch.
If you can keep a good mind for the game it doesn't matter where you are.
I’ve only ever played online poker in my home and its usually very quiet because its just my husband, myself and our 2 dogs, so I find that quite perfect for playing. I would say for myself, my mental state is the most important for me to play well. If I feel really good mentally nothing can distract me. I do like to have a 40oz drink of lemon water and like to sit in a comfortable place then I’m good to go. So yes my environment is quite important.

re: Poker & Do You Think Your Environment is Important for Your Play?
I definitely think environment as well as mood are crucial for success in poker. This applies to both playing online, as well as live games. I’ve rarely succeeded in places I’ve felt uncomfortable playing.
Undoubtedly, the environment plays a very important role. I only play poker at home and always try to be as focused as possible. Therefore, when playing poker, silence is the best atmosphere for me.

For me; i love sunshine so maybe besides small beautiful swimming pool or any where in my house have sunshine and wind... hum feed relaxing and comfortable to playing poker
Woulda never crossed my mind to think of that. i changed the room i play in and yeah it did make an impact. My other room was quite cold and had an echo. I won a few tourneys playing there though. Then i switch to an upstairs open windowed room and idk i play different. Dont win as much but i play different . When i was in the cold echoing room it maybe it put my mind set in a different place, one of survival. The room im in now is very nice but i think it makes me too comfortable. Great question i gotta look into that.
I only play poker at home, and this is the best place for me. I am always comfortable at home and thanks to this I am focused and have good results. I believe that it is possible to enjoy the game only in comfortable conditions.
The place to play does not determine the level of the player for me.A place should have space for thoughts.I have a desk and a chair-quite comfortable for playing games.Music and kitchen nearby.What else do you need to play?
