As I am using my 3rd mouse within 8-10 months, I wonder, do they have so short lives in others' hands, too?

I also 'managed' to break a hard-drive in this period, just hitting the desk, next to the laptop...

Generally, I am curious, how often and how much do you spend for computer equipments, related to playing online poker? What do you buy, why?

Within a year, I spent about 180-200$, mouses, head-set. Never would buy the expensive silent ones, if I wouldn't play poker regularly. (Fortunately, the hard-drive had guarantee.)

Have you ever broken any tech, comp stuff because of poker made you upset?
(As I 'executed' one of the mouses, because of some unbelievable river 1-3 outs 'bad-beat' series...)

Try punching a pillow instead.


Planning to buy a small box bag, hang it up next to the chair, so I do not even have to stand up to punch something else...

I know, I am not alone, one of my mate's personal 'best' was 7...

I broke one, from an extremely bad beat. I guess poker tries to teach you to toughen up emotionally. :)

Fortunately, I haven't broken anything yet. I think it's still ahead.

For 11 years of the game, I have not smashed a single mouse.

luckily I never broke any mouse while playing .. But instead, I did punch my laptop a few years ago :p
Think that might count as the same as 500 mouses :D:D

Not anymore!! :cool:

I believe none, because I only play on my smartphone or tablet.

Never broke a mouse. I keep trying to break my wrist when I punch the table, but I let the mouse go.

A very funny question. This has never happened, because I do not play with a mouse, but on a laptop without a mouse and I am not as nervous as you described the situation.

When I've started playing poker long time ago, I used to break like 4-5 mouse a year..
Now I get used with downswings and I temper myself and don't break things

I don't use a mouse - 9 years and my Mac's track pad (and everything else that came with/in my 9 yr old Mac) is still going strong.

I have never broken anything playing poker so 0$, you should learn to control your emtions while playing poker, that helps a lot to upgrade your poker skills.
