Personally, I try to concentrate on the tournament, I try not to have distractions, I don't watch television, I hardly listen to music, if I'm playing poker, it's playing poker, I focus a lot on my tournaments, in order to carry out an analysis of my opponents, That's the only way you can go far in tournaments.

I started playing at 2 tables at the same time, so there's no time to get bored.

If your goals are maximum in the game, then playing two tables simultaneously is already a lot. Сoncentration, observation of the opponent's game are decisive for a positive result. Therefore I don't adhere to the opinion that more gaming tables should achieve better results.

each to there own i think, for me i like to take in all the info from the MTT i'm in, if i'm running deep then i might jump in a 2nd or 3rd MTT, but at most i'll play 3 tables

Sometimes I listen to some music, but in the most cases I do nothing. Just trying to put focus on the game (but no expressive results until now, lol)

I try to concentrate 100%, I just concentrate on the game, on taking notes on the opponents, and I don't use the TV or the phone, I get too distracted.

I listen to the music and fix the files on my computer. I have noticed that I do better in poker if I do something else while waiting. Otherwise I get too anxious and make bad decisions

The truth is that I am absolutely right there are days when playing is tiring. Well I watch videos or other things but I feel that my game goes down much better you play several tables and pay attention to all of them

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?
I like watching clips, drinking beer, and even movies.

Hi, friend!
When I play poker, I focus only on the game, no matter how long it lasts. I can turn on the music on my headphones, but I try to remove all distractions from myself that prevent me from focusing on the game. Try to do the same. You will see the quality of your poker decisions begin to improve.
Good luck at the tables)

Nowadays I might play a video game , or play sth on mobile , a game App for fun . Playing only poker , if I am not deep , if the tourneys sats are of no big interest or if they are simply freerolls , that might bore me . But if the games are many , if some pay $$$ , then everything is fine . If I play lying on my bed I get bored easily , on pc it's better .

Depends on how many tables Im playing at that moment. Right now Im playing 2 on my computer and Im also doing CC posts on my ipad. Sometimes I knit, sometimes I go on the treadmill, or sometimes Ill move everything to the kitchen and cook or bake something.
