      The subj. says it all - what kind of music do you listen while playing live poker? :)

      Fast, slow, inspiring, aggressive, dull,.. etc? Something that drowns the background noises or music as background while still perfectly hearing all the table discussions, ... etc? Something that helps you to push the chips :D or exactly opposite, something calm that helps you to keep cool head?

      Don't wanna be a thread spoiler, but I never listen music while playing... there's too much free information that will help me decide what to do at some point. For me it's like live datamining, as it allows me to gather information from hands in which I wasn't at the table. It's actually quite amusing rather than boring.

      Some time ago I heard a guy talking to his friend about some points that he needed for whatever ranking system. I guessed that he would fold everything in order to gather those points. Close to the bubble, I pushed each and every single time he was the big blind, and I was third to act! LOL Worked beautiful.

      Nice read AquamanBT! :D But I mean it is so rare to pick up such a reads.. Music doesn't distract me from making body-language related reads though. And I personally find it much easier to concentrate when music is on, even if its one earphone

      Yeah why not listen in the early stages, you have an edge usually anyway. Just lose your Deathmetal when you reach FT ;p

      If I did play live poker enough to get so bored with it that I'd need to entertain myself with music and stuff during and between hands... I'd probably listen to classical music or nature sounds :P

      Live poker is amazing cause you can annoy your opponents after you fold=) ) Put them on tilt!!

      I'd listen to Herbie Hancock.
