I even use it only that sometimes in some decisions or quotes I can't use music as a good thing and it ends up as a noise that deconcentrates me. I don't think that hearing anything at least for me to hear all the time is good. sometimes total silence makes us hear the great noise of a good decision or game wisdom that is on your mind, just waiting to be heard

I never play music while playing poker because it is a distraction, huge distraction for me. I understand other people feel differently, but to me it is a no-no

I like playing with music.
But the strange thing is, when the music is on, it's like my game isn't working.
So I think for me it's a bit distracting.

Of course, if I listen to music, I think it is to activate and not sleep in the poker sessions hahaha, I listen to more reggaeton and pop, the top songs that sound more ..

Hi.
Usually, I always have the radio on. So in most cases I play poker for music.
Good luck.

On the contrary, extraneous sounds distract me. Even if someone tells me something, then it's hard to concentrate.

Yes, good music is an excellent companion while playing poker! It is also a kind of shield to help focus to the game!

Hello.
I do not listen to music while playing. Music distracts me and impedes concentration. I prefer silence.

I never use music when I play poker. because it keeps me from concentrating and making the right decisions. I prefer to launch a movie or a documentary in the background. it's more soothing especially on parts that last 4 or 5 hours.

Нет, я не слушаю музыку, потому что она отвлекает от игры.

Radio is a good idea. My radio broke down years ago and was forgotten. Thank you for reminding me.

I usually only listen to music when I am tired, otherwise I rather focus on the action.

In general, everything depends on the mood. Sometimes I listen to music, sometimes I watch TV, sometimes I even read. I think a player's concentration depends primarily on his desire to win, not on whether he listens to music or not.

I like it very much to listen to music while playing online poker. What I don't like to do is doing another tasks that may affect my focus on the table(s).
