Hi, what do I do when I play online poker? the answer is simple, I remove any distraction that may be and I concentrate, no newspapers, movies or music just the game, I am not a professional and I do not consider myself a great player so I will not give advantages with distractions.

Greetings.

I sit as comfortable as I can and I concentrate to the game. I like to watch and observe carefully the game! It is not good idea to watch tv, or read newspaper, you lose the games's informations, which are valuable for the game!

if I am playing 2 screens I usually watch tv, more than 4 screens so I focus on the same game.

While I play poker I concentrate only on it, as a last resort I can turn on music that I like and play in complete peace of mind.

It is very bad idea to do anything else than playing on the one and only table, any other destruction will surly lead to loose !

Usually I watch some tv series / youtube videos, mostly video game streaming ones.

When I have a chance I play several tables at the same time.
When I get bored/tired I stop playing.

listen to music

First of all you are right Lol read the newspaper don't improve your game but I understand. What I like the most when I play poker is listening to music that keeps me motivated I like eminem's music most of all and try to be focus on my game.

The music I listen to is motivating music and I think it really works music makes me feel unstoppable and thats really good in poker and in general life I think if we feel good we'll play good so just try it and most of all have fun when you play

I usually listen to music or podcasts. If I'm only playing one table, I'll watch videos and or have a basketball game on in the background.

There was only one time I was playing a video game and a tournament at the same time and funnily enough, I made it to the final table lol

I play lots and lots of music! preferably music that gets me amped up! I find that I only get bored the smaller the field gets and people start getting scared to lose chips. Other than that play some death metal and kick butt!

Drink coffee and smoke ciggs

I am catching myself to get bored when playing online poker. So I start reading the newspaper or watch some TV series online. Of course that does not make my play any better.

What do you do, when playing online poker?
When playing online I listen to some relaxing music, drink coffee, and smoke ciggs. I am probably the unhealthiest player on earth. I am retired and I am a recreational player so I have a lot of time on my hands. Between games I read posts on CC.

I usually put tags on opponents, or if I play without mood, I just fall asleep a little. But then I wake up with a stroke, as the distribution of good hands begins and the game goes in my favor.

As I play poker, I love listening to music. I do not watch TV and I do not read newspapers. Just music. In this way I am always in the process of what is happening at the table.

I listened to a lot of music as I played and began to notice that it increased my anxiety peak.

I'm trying to listen to binaural frequencies or even try to play in silence.

I recommend the alpha, beta and gamma binaural frequencies!
