For me, the most important thing is that I sleep well and that I have a good mood. These are probably the two main conditions. And of course, a cup of strong coffee before the game :)

Hello everyone!
I wonder if do you guys make some specials, like a ritual, procedure or whatever.
I, about half an our before, take a good shower, fix about 1/2 liter of coffee to drink during the game, liter of water, put on wearing my cowboy hat and, finally, set up the songs to roll. These all if the game is a kind of an important one.
What about you?
Depends on the time of day. During the day I take my kids to school, at night it’s after bed. All the prep I need is having kid free time to play lol

Hi.
For me, the main thing is to finish all household chores before the game, so that nothing distracts me during the game. This is my main preparation for the tournament :)
Good luck.

When I play for fun, just for fun, I don't do anything special other than a glass of wine or a glass of ale. But when I play for money, I focus on classical music.

If I am determined to play well, then I try to remove all distractions from myself)

I like to eat a good meal before the start of the tournament so that I don't get distracted by food during the game

the thing to do is to make sure you're wide awake and alert. Today I registered for a tourney and fell asleep before it started. I woke up after I was already out. Not so good.

There is a difference between playing poker in real life and playing online. In live games, players can sit next to each other and watch their facial expressions and body language. However, there will be no cameras broadcasting players' facial expressions while playing online. This can be a problem for some players as they tend to make decisions based on the player's moves and actions.Some even play sohbet poker or browse the internet. All this is not a good example of creating a good environment, because such distractions will give players the opportunity to make mistakes and lose important information about their opponents. To get better at online poker, you need to take the game seriously and enjoy the game with little to no distractions.No matter how relaxed you are, people tend to get tired after a while doing something for long hours. Take snacks and drinks with you to enjoy your online poker experience. When you feel tired, take a break and enjoy these snacks with you.
