This is a discussion on Is music a distraction?? In person.... within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I find that music relaxes most players and always see people wearing head phones on tv.
do You find that its distracting for you to
I'm pretty sure that I looked into this years back and that the conclusion based on some research was that music with lyrics is very distracting and slows your thought processes down but music sans-lyrics can actually relax you and not impede your ability to think quickly and clearly.
I find that music relaxes most players and always see people wearing head phones on tv.
do You find that its distracting for you to listen to music while you play in person.....
also what is your favorite type of music to listen to during play??
I find music to be a distraction among many when playing online.... because im always doing 100 things lol.... If you ever see me timing out a lot...its because Im multitasking 100 or so things lol.
I am not much distracted from playing poker with music that I like, and it happens that I listen to music during a tournament or during cash games, and for me it is great to listen to my favorite music and play poker!
I can't tell that music distracts me , maybe if the song has lyrics and I sing along with the singer ha ha. But you always have the option to listen to some relaxing style like ambient genre music or something like classic music. The above style will definitely help you!
I think everything what makes you feel relaxed Is good. At Onlinepoker its much more important to controll your Tilt-o-meter 😁 No one is watching you, So Its easy to make bad moves.
At Livepoker i would never go with Headphones.
At first I think Its disrespectfull to hear Music while playing Cards.
Second I like to hear my Opponents cry 😁
Someone claims that music during the session helps will relax, to be fenced off from excess noise and a talk, to focus on a game and to adjust an emotional state. Music can help to correct mood during the game in poker, so, to promote increase in the size of a bankroll.
I like to listen to music when I play poker, it does not distract me, which one? - depends on the situation, if I play aggressively and the card comes in - then I listen to the house or deep house, if the card does not enter, then something that is disturbing and distracting from nervous thoughts
Just like when doing anything I think it has a lot to do with what type of music you listen to when you are doing something else.
For example if many experts suggest listening to classical music while studying because it improves Focus, the same could be true when focusing on anything.
On the other hand if you are listening to screamo music or head-banging music, obviously this could be a little distracting when trying to focus on something.
Me personally I like to listen to instrumental music when I am playing poker. this does not necessarily mean classical, just something without words so that I am not focusing on the lyrics When I am trying to focus on the cards.
I like to listen music while i play online but i keep the volume relatively low so that it do not distract me from the game. During live game i never listen to music as i like to watch and monitor the game including the talk on the table.
I find it so distracting to listen to music while playing poker, it's not relaxing at all. My focus is not there anymore especially if I listened to music with lyrics like rap or something... but when I used to two-table zoom sometimes I listened to Boris Brejcha.....
If the music is overly incessantly repetitive and aggressive then it makes me tilt more, otherwise listening to deep house or some mellow drum and bass lets me get more into the groove and play more automatically.
When you play online by yourself, music helps you keep your mind occupied with something else! In live poker, I think music is more of a distraction than it is about helping you. I choose to listen to house music while playing on my computer.
