I listen music
Meditation allows me to always be in a good mood and promotes my concentration. I never listen to music while playing because music just distracts me.
I agree with this statement, he also makes similar practical attempts. Food, stretching, exercises. The music distracts me, maybe a musical theme every so often to raise the vibration, there are times that I only play poker concentrated at a single table.
Doing what you are passionate about is Winning!
I confirm that you must always take the time to improve your mood and be positive before the start of your session. to be able to play his A game in poker. i don't like to hear music. I prefer to put a documentary or YouTuber that I like in the background. it is always good to visualize your objective and the strategy you are going to apply before the start of a game.
I always play poker in good spirits happy happy but when I lose playing well with good hands I lose on the river my spirits get excited and sometimes it explodes, not always only sometimes, I listen to a good Classic Rock and it passes me.
If I have free time I actually always have a positive mood. I totally agree that there is no point in playing poker when you are in a bad mood or you are sick, because such a game will be more like forced labor under supervision.
