I just listen a good rock music, some time ago I was playing poker while playing chess, I note that I wasnt having good results on poker so I decided to stop playing 2 games at once, I could see my results getting better.

Music helps to keep the calm, and this can avoid you to make some mistakes. It helps to concentrate, but when i'm in a very important play I turn it off to pay more attention

I do the exact same.. i will have my music on then soon as i am about to get into a big pot or i am about to shove/call a shove ill either turn the music down or off :p

But yeah music does help you keep focused and make less mistakes

For me I can't focus on playing poker without noise around me. I have to be watching something on TV or a series on Netflix while I am playing. If i'm not watching TV then I have to be listening to music. I am pretty sure the majority of people are completely opposite from me, but what do you guys do?

I Support my favorite football team - Liverpool, and play football on the streets):jd4:

I've gotten addicted to playing, so meanwhile I have to do other stuff like doing the dishes, cooking... I end up like a crazy rushing from the kitchen to the living room so many times!
I also watch tennis grand slam matches.

Generally I have a window alongside the poker client with some comedy series like Friends, or TBBT. Makes it easier to take on bad beats as well.

started in poker a little while , I am learning , I have done a lot of experience , to overcome the pressure , but the focus is a foundation.

A variety of things. I play mostly tournaments. Early in a tournament, I read or surf the interwebs. In the middle game, I mostly concentrate on the pokers since IMO this is the most critical stage of the tournament. If I go deep, I like to clean things or cook a meal to relieve the tension. Final table, sweat like a banshee then vigorously swear when I go out to something stupid.

Usually I am attentive to the game as it is important to see how others play only what I do is put relaxing music and not get distracted though both see tv a few times but usually I avoid hehehe. :D

Usually I listen to music, it helps to concentrate.
Never forget the evening when I lost almost $200 in 1-1,5 hour while watching 'Some Like It Hot' - even now I can't say why I could't just get my head out of my ass and play without getting distracted :D
