      Personally I can't play live without my ipod well stacked up with all my favourite poker playing music!...

      Sometimes at the table i wonder what other people are listening to, does it effect their mood or game playing???


      are they listening to music, podcasts, maybe even a poker podcast??....


      I know its a little bit from the norm but every little factor has to be taken into consideration...

      are they seasoned and the music makes no odds, or are they someone who cant concentrate while listneing!....

      I like to listen to a lot of the gorrillaz, rhinestone eyes or empire ants...

      whats on your ipod when your playing, running hot or tilting!

      been listing to a lot of Against me! and leftover crack. i listen to a lot of protest the hero to. I like to listen to punk or heavy stuff, when i sit down i put my self in a mental state to hate every1 at the table, i want to win all the money. that sorta music helps. I'll also put on a lot of ska to put me in a good mood and i don't tilt and stay'd happy and focused.

      i'm not a jerk tho once i stand up i don't hate any1 anymore lol. :P

      I like to mix it up, sometimes I have some chilled out post rock like Sigur Ros on, other times some standard rock like Biffy Clyro. Then there's the classics like Radiohead. I've also got the Shadow of the Colossus soundtrack which is good. Maybe some dubstep? Or some nice chilled out singer/songwriter sort of stuff. Lately it's been a bit of progressive metal harbouring in my Itunes whilst grinding.

      Word. The Racontours too.

      I like to reflect the style Im playing. In a short stacked pub tourney or freeroll Ill listen to faster paced stuff, 90's grunge, Chilli Peppers, Tool.

      If playing a longer game Ill listen to softer stuff. Im loving Mumford and Sons right now.

      Tiëstos podcast. I love trance music mixed with poker def. my prefered music to listen to when i play poker. Not because i like it the most but because i focus the most.

      Here is an example (Just skip the first part by dragging the bar, it bugs on ps.com due to an advertisement or double click to listen on youtube)

      yea Sigur Ros and dub-step is a nice mix!...

      The Ministry of sound, sound of dub-step.. great album...
      Mos Def, Black on both sides...
      Arcade Fire, The Suburbs... very nice one as well


      the stripes are a definite as well, and of course that Tiesto podcast is amazing... been subscribing to it for a couple of years now after i seen him live at global gathering doing a set with Oakenfold, unreal!...


      Definitely not enough yet we need everyone's opinion on this, still haven't heard anybody who likes to listen to some classical, country, blues, maybe some nice elevator music or perhaps the euro-vision soundtracks!....


      Also Last night i was playing a deep stack tourney in my local casino, probably played some of the best poker I've played in recent times, only finished 2nd.. he 4 bet shoves my AA with Tens and gets a 10 in the window.. anyway i found myself blaring this... a lot!... great when you bust someone especially!

      A favourite grinding tune of mine, especially if I'm experiencing some tilt!

      Mainly listen to liquid dnb and hip hop when I grind. I think anything to stressfull distracts me!
