      Hello,
      I`m just wondering, what about music while you play? That may take away your attention from poker, but on the other hand music may save you from going on tilt :) Anyway, just a thought.

      How do you see poker combined with music?

      I find that it helps at first, but, towards the end of my session, i find it distracting. Overall though, some AC/DC does help me profit over all =D (Although I play worse with music, my profits are often higher o.O Just luck maybe?)

      I have music on because i love music and it helps me to focus to the game and makes me feel better.
      Funny is that i have several playlists made for playing poker,made of songs that are tilt-free. I never listen to songs like Rude boy by Rihhana (although i like the song a lot) or Hot by Inna, again, they just tilt me so much.. :D I ussually listen to some rock.

      its a two edged sword. Ive been playing with music on for ages. I just stopped last night, as I really think it can screw up your thought process at times. its OK if your on autopilot, but thats not optimal!

      I like listening to progressive/minimal/tech, things not too fast tho, it's not distracting and keeps me in motion :s_cool: , sometimes reggae/dub.
      Ahh yeah and chiptune too, it makes poker feel like an arcade game :] rly cool stuff. Never had tilt or downswing on chiptune, it may sound weird...but it just depends on how it makes you feel !

      Hey Joao! When it comes to chiptune, there are many artists out there...tho dubmood is my favorite (he's actually the composer for Razor1911). I've lost the torrent links for him, if you use torrents...look him up on btjunkie dot org & thepiratebay dot org. He's the best there is! You may also like this: "blipfestival dot org"

      I think music is fine while playing full ring so you wouldn't fall asleep during the session or rip off your balls out of boredom
