Im wondering if anyone listens to music while they play poker and what kind of music.

I listen to a lot of music while i play and think it helps.

I listen to a lot of hip hop when playing poker. I find my reads atleast in Omaha are at their best when I listen to Jay-z and Linkin' Park's collision course. I have no idea why it is so.

I do, if only because it helps pass the time in between hands and keeps me from getting bored. However if I reach a critical decision I will shut it off to concentrate.

As for what type of music, I'll usually just set my playlist to shuffle. I stay away from extremes thought because occassionally it might affect my play. I don't feel like playing tight when I'm listening to Metallica for instance :p

I listen to my MP3 player when I play poker. My taste in music is pretty diverse, but here's just one of my playlists:

must is essential to me, without it i cannot sustain 100% concentration for a long period of time ( ie 6 hours plus)
my ipod is very diverse but i end up listening to a songs by coldplay and rage against the machine the most

Um ya, very diverse.

Bonus points for having the Pixies and the Dead Milkmen in there.:D

Negative points for Duran Duran and Rihanna.:eek:

I never listen to music when I am at the casino. I want as much information as possible.

As for when I am online, I may listen to music but I also like to download local morning station podcasts and listen to them. Because of my work schedule, I can't listen to them when they are originally broadcast.

I have a particular playlist that I only listen to while playing. It helps my game a lot, I find if I'm not listening I tend to lose concentration.

As far as what I listen too many indie and soft music
