Music that has low tones to avoid the movement of emotions helps decision-making and thus be able to improve ideas in the meas, so there is not much knowledge of this subject I recommend classical music that helps

Hi, everybody. I haven't reached offline games yet. I can tell you about online games. During the online session, I mostly watch other players ' streams. But I also often listen to cool tracks from a variety of artists, and I have a special album that contains my favorite tracks.
And here is one of them :
Please check it out!




Life is a game , play beautiful

for me is actually a distraction, but sometimes I can get motivated by music
The music should contain words of incentive and motivation in this case. But it will actually lead to mood control.

I do listen to music while I play.

I do listen to music while I play where there's live poker or online. It keeps me very calm and keeps me very focused on what the task is at hand sometimes in the life can be for all the shutdowns I would listen to music cuz sometimes people would stay stupid stuff and and it's my way to say I don't want to hear you right now. I like it better online cuz no one bothers you about whether you listen to earphones and music or not kind of funny that when I was playing in pub poker league they were complain about that but yet you go to a casino you're playing for a lot more money a lot more so steak and no one seems a bother someone over it. Just it just seems very funny to me that's all but the answer the question I like listening to music keeps me very calm and focused I should be doing it more then I have been.

Purely dependant on the situation

Do you use music in live tournaments or online to focus? Or is it just distracting ?


I usually play with around 9/10 of my friends and the start of the game can get pretty loud - especially since it’s probably the only time we all see each other. I usually have just the one headphone in at this point so I can chat but stay in my own zone.

I am a musician though and I listen to music every second I can. I honestly think it helps me play better because it keeps me chill instead of rising up to a frustrating play or searching on the river. Just me personally though 🤷🏻*♂️

Music is definitely a must for me. I prefer Lo-Fi Hip-Hop playlists that can really let me zone out and get into a groove. For me, it needs to be something relaxing, something that can let me center myself when I have to make tough decisions.

Frustation!

I would say music will keep you more relax too!:p

always have the music close by, online or live, but don't always have it on. Depends on what the game is like.

Yes,
i listen to music during online playing it helps me focus and it also helps me pass time, really helps when im deep and your just waiting on hand,

but there are times i really dont want to listen to music, so i put a video on the side or the tv to watch something while playing, just makes time go by faster and doesnt make me play terrible by limpin some 'okay' hands. lol.

Music

I sometimes pause the music for "big hands" but like calm background music, piano, classical or audiobooks for longer term playing like Sunday tourneys. That said, I often play Saturday night cash games with a few beers, snacks and some rock from Youtube!

Yep, tends to help. Sometimes also have the tv but this can distract from the game. Music is good though to help keep attention in long games where you may get bored.

Sometimes, if not most of the time music can be a distraction for me, honestly. I guess I'm different.

Good afternoon!
Naturally! Sure!
You can also launch some training video or stream instead of music, for example.
Or a movie (TV series) :D:D:D

Never been to a live event, but I hope to one day. As for online, I listen to music with no lyrics to focus up for sure.

I only play online and enjoy listening to music while playing, especially at the beginning of tournaments, when it comes to the final tournaments I usually don't listen.

I usually listen to the music while playing freerolls but once I get ITM or final table, when I have to concentrate a bit more, I sometimes pause the player.

Very interesting your question. She hadn't thought about that yet. But I prefer silence. I can concentrate better this way.
