Hi


Did You ever consider possibility, that music that You listen during playing poker ?


You probably noticed that many of PRO's are using their MP3's players while sitting on the table.

It make sense, if You realize that music is a vibe which got great impact to our brainwave.

You can make experiment; such as : play one long session listening to hard-rock music; and second using
lounge or chillout.

I made once a weird one; it was consisted on listen to only ONE long relaxing song; during MTT;

Results was quite good, because I have been beaten few times with a lot stronger hand, and it didnt make me tilt or nervous; finally I finished about 100 place on 20k prizepool MTT and gained 30$.



Make your thoughts Blink

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...

I have to agree with THAT... if there's one thing I just cannot stand is the sound of chips plinking...

Plink plink PLINK plink PlInK pLinK Plink PlINK....plink plink plink.... Smile

...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...! Thumbs Up

I like to listen to some music when I play DON´s, the music makes me play more patiently and If I get a bad beat, the tilt goes away more quickly when I listen to some music.

That what I was talking about Smile

I didnt mean to listen to the music, while playing multi-table or some very important tournament especially on higher levels.

It's just simply getting me into a better mood and attitude to bad beats Agree

Refering to the chips shuffle sound, it's so annoying when I'm watching live coverage ... reminds me Nazi's movie torture scene of with cat, and constantly dripping milk Confused So sick Aww crap!

I listen to music while playing most of the time I play poker. It keeps me focused and drowns out any noises which could interrupt me etc. DNB goes well with grinding for me.

G'day mates

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

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.
