      I've been wondering what are you listening to while playing? I mean not all kinds of music are suitable for playing because some of them are too "motivational" if I can say and they might influence your play at some situations. If you can suggest me some playlists with nothing too extreme I'd be glad to try them.
      Cheers

      The best song to listen to while playing poker is Nothing by Mute Your Speakers.

      Hahhaha Thumbs up for that :) Well yea but sometimes it is not good because you get distracted, at least I do. And if I listen to house etc it makes me more focused on the game.

      with poker being more about knowing how to read data at times then i think listening to music is essential at times, what you choose to listen to should not change your ability to read whats been going on
      would be a lonely life if everything was muted and you could only focus on your screen

      @furculision - booka shade are awesome to listen to when playing! thanks for sharing that, i'd never heard of them before. and deffo dubstep it gets you chilled out and in the zone, not much singing to put you off either which is a bonus.

      From psychology aspect of listening of music while study/playing/working with need of concentration, the best is any kind of pure music (without singers), like classic music or something similar, and it shouldnt be loud (low in background).

      Music helps me a lot to focus when I play, I think it has to do with the fact that I am a musician, my hole aware life I breathed music, so it doesn't disturbs me at all, but only if there are songs that I know by heart or close. I sing along and just focus on my game.
      I usually listen to a large mix of funk, disco, soul, rock, pop, metal and others "analogics" styles, but there is one song I never miss and usually listen to repeatedly a few times (cause much to short) :



      Enjoy! I am in love with this song since I was a kid.
