      Hi,

      I'm not a pro, but I was wondering how many of you take care of tidy environment around you when playing poker and how much does it influence on your game. For example, I heard that Ziigmund is playing in bed surrounded by junk-food leftovers, which can cause higher tilt for labile person like Ziggy.

      For me, when my room is in a mess, I just can't play me A-game. I'm just acting hasty and suboptimal.

      Keep my room tidy all the time, still will smash my fist in the wall or try to karate chop my table.

      I've never played in a mess, always Tidy, so can't compare :(

      Couldn't play in a mess though, I'd imagine it would put me off :D

      Tidy Room is +EV?

      I get this when i do my uni work, when my room is tidy i get allot more done..

      Poker is about the same, I only get my A game when im on my own, in my room, and its tidy. but if my room isnt tidy i go into another room and get distracted from people.. so im guessing a tidy room = +EV.. :D

      For me it's the dishes, if there are a pile of them with food and grease and I haven't done them, I'm off my game. Dirty-dishes tilt. And I'm a guy, WTF?

      Buy a dishwasher +EV, or get a girlfriend (somewhat +EV)

      Even if I start with tidy room, after few days of pokering it becomes a complete shithole. i just don't notice surroundings while I play.
