remove cat from keyboard, peek around cat to see the screen, shove -- uh, gently lift cat and place on floor, repeat as necessary.

LOL - I have to do a bit of that too :rolleyes:

If it's at night I drink beer and quote Vanquish's posts (while losing my gluteous maximus at PL Omaha). While listening to Sum 41.

does anyone else do this?

also, especially when i play omaha, i talk to myself saying what i have, what can beat me, etc.

Yeah, It's a horrible habit to get into, espicially when you slip during a live game. So now I just cuss at the screen. :)

While I'm playing poker, I like hearing decent tv noise from another room. Sometimes I surf the net, check the forum, and when it is imminent that I might get on tilt, I try to prvent myself from that by writing down some cusses in my poker notebook :damnmate:, using letters that are half as big as the pages.

If it's at night, I play the game where I join Rob's ring games and donk off chips. (while drinking)

I do have to admit this replying to posts is getting a bit addicting....I just wonder one thing. What the heck is a quality post and who judges that. Is it a rating system...two groans from the admins and its a bad post:eek: A smirk and it counts as two posts? :rolleyes: Just wondering aloud with my fingers....

I'm usually drowning out the music from my stereo with things like Not a jack, not a jack, not a jack, FUUUUUUUUCCCCKKKKK!

How can he make that call with four outs!

Or, not a jack, not a jack, not a jack, YEEEEEEEEESSSS!

What a muppet! How can he make that call with four outs!

I Just try to do anything to keep me focused. It varies for me at times at what will be able to do that. A lot of time it's music but different types of music - sometimes I listen to the heavy stuff or I can go completely 180 and listen to classical music.

Another thing that I do while playing, is pretty much emulate what I do when I'm at a B&M. I'll be hittin' up FTP, UB or PokerRoom using the mouse in my right hand and then playing with chips in my left hand - working on my 'chipping' or chip tricks. Try to learn new stuff or practice tricks I haven't mastered yet so I don't look like an idiot when I try to pull it off in front of people.

Or....I can just get completely distracted and watch stuff online videos, hit up MSN or Facie...I try to avoid it but I can't help it sometimes!:D

Just playing on one table would send me on unbridled monkey tilt.

Personally I think unless you are multi-tabling with tracker software and or a HUD, you are cheating yourself. This is of course less than optium play but designed to increase your overall profit per hour.

In a cash game or buy-in tourney it costs you so many blinds an hour to sit at the table. You should, IMO, be getting maximum value for your investment. If nothing else you should be trying to put the players in the hands you folded on a range of hands, and watching their betting patterns.

Even in freerolls and playchips where you are investing your time to improve your game, you should take that time investment seriously.

Watching T.V., drinking, smoking weed, and any other distractions keep you from picking up crutial information. I don't know how many times I've faced a player from an early table of mine late, who will ask me "how did you make that call?" I'll usually say something like "I had a feeling." It was clear I remembered him and he didn't remember me.......

Of course if you are simply playing for entertainment then that is a different form of poker all together.
