There is no free time. If I have free time I open another table. Rinse and repeat till there's no free time.

Cheers!!!

If you have time to do something else while playing poker you will never win. You need to study how the other players
on your table play in every hand, how long they take to move, bet size etc, even when you are not in that hand. If you don't do that well good luck, you will need it.

Watching tv or playing a lot of tables together can fill up your time!

Poker tournaments can last hours. How do you help keep time moving?
I enjoy giggling thanks to dave (tv channel) and a few sips of whisky. Occasionally i write.
I still have to run around the house every now and then, as well as catering to my son needs.
Time moves quite smoothly for me, games don't seem to feel like they drag. I am content.
I mostly read world news. Rarely, but still, I listen to music. And now that I have registered on the CardsChat forum, I spend a lot of time here. I love to read the thoughts of intellectual people. :geek:

I play mostly in the evenings, and during the game I quite often listen to the news, watch YouTube, and sometimes if I'm in a good mood, I listen to music.

I like listening to music, I don't like television, it takes away my concentration.

That's why I like to play several tournaments at the same time and I notice that I also focus more on the other players style/actions when I have 4-5 tables open at the same time then when I play only one tournament each time.

When playing online poker, I turn on music and listen to music to get high and relax. But when you listen for a long time, you can't stand it.

While playing, I often watch my favorite YouTube channels. Besides, during the break, I can go to the kitchen to make myself something to drink or eat. In general, I lead a fairly active lifestyle, and several hours in front of the monitor definitely do not harm me :)

For me the best way to spend time is watching a movie that I've already watched over and over so I don't get too distracted

I can put on some not very stressful, but interesting YouTube video for an hour and play along to it. I know that some people even play to films.

I like to listen to music, I'm not one to do any other activity that might distract me, and in order not to get bored it's good to play several tables.

I only play poker, any distraction takes away my energy, I don’t know about you, but if I start doing something else, I lose the tournament
