When I'm playing poker on my mobile app, the worse thing that distracts me is getting constant messages on whatsapp and then sometimes when I get whatsapp calls, I find I have to re-log into poker again.

The best distraction for me is poker. By playing 4 tables, I find I am able to focus purely on playing and everything else can be ignored. However, once I bust out of a couple of tournaments, it's quite easy for me to start looking at my phone, scrolling through Facebook or Twitter, or start watching TV.

Too many tables can be distracting, to few as well. When I have to few tables, I start reading/watching something in the internet, which is not so good for my concentration.
But the worst are phone calls or talkings from family members. This brings me completely out of the flow during the games.
