Yeah the pros listen to musics while playing because of the long long long hours of play but some just said it's because they don't like the sound of chips shuffle or the crowd when it's full house. Music is good but once you reach the final 2 tables it's better not to listen and keep focus only with the gameplay...
...oh,...also....you would have to listen to a LOT of types of music through MANY MANY games to see if it really has any effect... Just trying it for a few games and drawing a concusion from that will not give you an accurate result... But you ARE onto something I believe...!

There is absolutely no doubt the relaxing and calming music being played in the background can help you to play better poker. Aggressive music can easily make a player more hostile at the tables while relaxing music can and does keep pros calmer. I have done this many time and I personal have had noticeable results. The type of music does make a difference. be cool

I think they play the music just to relax themselves because when you are relaxed, decisions always seem to come easier. I think everybody is different and if a certain type of music makes you play better i would keep listening

im too good for that.
some people say music isnt good because you cant fully concentrate and play your a game (whatever that might be). but not for me though, not only im able to listen to music while playing, i took it a step further - i compose music while 24 tabbling zoom.
