In my case I prefer to play when I'm alone otherwise I don't get distracted by a conversation while playing

Hi
Mostly I live alone, but sometimes my girlfriend lives with me and to be honest she doesn't distract me at all. When I play poker, she does her own thing, and it's not a problem for us at all.
Good luck.

I prefer to play alone, but I have no problem playing with more people. During a game where you have more people around, a conversation can temporarily disturb your vigilance and attention, and then it's easier to make a mistake.

Well..... let's see there's 3 toddlers, 1 teenager... where there's one there's always more close by, 2 adults, 2 dogs, 7 cats and don't get me started on the snake..... you can probably guess when I like to play 👍

Since I usually have several tables open at the same time, I actually only play when I'm alone and not distracted.

Definitely alone so you can concentrate - I'm easily distracted so best to be just myself and focused.

To play in a quiet environment, without much outside interference, for better reasoning and choice of plays, is certainly great

you can play calm if you're bothered by noises around you, you can put on headphones and turn on the music so that it doesn't bother you, but I also love playing in the quiet of home I'm so much calmer than when there are noises around and I don't listen to music I play better without it

I don't mind having someone around.
But it also depends a lot on what kind of people are around.

I play at home. Doesn't bother me, as my husband is usually around, watching videos on his headphones, so effectively I'm alone....

I prefer to play when I am alone, although I did have a Friend call round for a coffee one morning and I said he would have to wait as I was in the last stages of a game I was involved in. He sat nearby and watched me play for the last 3 places in a 9 player SnG, I was chip leader and I explained how I was raising in some spots because of position, and why I folded sometimes even on the BB.
I finished winning the game after around 10 mins and as I was about to get up and make him a brew he said he enjoyed that and wished he could play himself, so I said the only way to learn is to play and registered him in a 2,000 Dollar game and said go ahead and try. He was shocked and asked my if I was Stupid or something? thinking it was real money. I said I'm not that Stupid, It's play money chips.
He would call out his hands to me as I was in the kitchen making us a Coffee and I was calling back "Fold" or wait for a better hand, and before I finished making us a brew he lost the lot. I tried to get him to play again but Cards certainly was not his strong point as he preferred to waste his money on the Horses or Sports betting.
I would like to pass on what I know from playing Poker to my Grandkids but none have ever shown an interest in the game, and I don't want to force them into it, I suppose one day they might want to learn why I loved to play Poker so much, but I might not be around to teach them.
