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.

I have BBC Radio 4 on in the background, or sometimetimes internet-radio.com.

Several tables do not let me get bored, and the music creates the mood.

I usually play games when I'm at work. I don't usually come home and turn on my PC to play poker.

I try to concentrate on the game. Don't like music or other noise. Just think about the game.

I watch movies, sports games, and I would not say that it bothers me or distracts me, but on the contrary, time passes faster.

Drink coffee and smoke ciggs


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.
You and I are similar. I am also a pensioner. Instead of coffee, I drink beer, I smoke only on breaks. I enjoy every minute of the game.

I think it's incredibly common to watch YouTube, poker Twitch, etc while playing online, and I'm definitely guilty of doing this myself.

The absolute WORST is watching strategy videos WHILE playing though. Takes away from the playing AND takes away from the strategy videos as well.

I've found that single-tasking is the best way to go through everything, but I can't always get myself to do it. It's easy when I'm deep in some MTTs and the focus comes very naturally. But sometimes in the early game I'm bored unless I have more tables up. It's a tricky balance though because if I play more tables I may be less profitable while playing them.

Surf the web, play games, watch a movie. It is a habit i need to get out off as my results have been shocking of late. I concentrate on everything but poker.

friend, we all watch the series because it is impossible to wait so long for other players to make a move tournaments take so long that the meaning of the game is lost I think someday they will change the time in poker tournaments so that the games are not so long, otherwise you will have to continue watching series

The advantages that poker opens up will appeal to many. People only dream of not getting up early in the morning; not depend on the authorities and be able to take vacations when they want. Playing poker opens up great opportunities for a person in terms of independent planning of his working day and independence. But on the other hand, poker is also a job that does not tolerate neglect, and if you do not have enough self-discipline, then it will be extremely difficult to achieve high results.
