What I Enjoy 2 Do

By: aznhaxor @ 12:13 (EST) / 56 / Comment ( 0 )

Hello Hello,


Happy to meet you all again. Today, I like to talk about what I enjoy to do when I play online poker. This may not apply to everyone but think it is the best.

Whether you might watch TV, read news, stream (sports) video, listen music while playing poker, I suggest you "something" while playing poker! May be perhaps, you do nothing but focus purely on poker, but come on that is a waste of time!

Sitting behind and waiting for someone to act is painful. But, you cannot go surf through websites because you have to take notes on other players! Now this something I suggest you is podcast.

Well, I listen to number of podcasts. I like to grow my brain when I play poker. I like fueling my brain with knowledges and futhermore, after listening to podcast, I play better poker since then. We should use our time in a smart way, effectively and efficiently. I think there are several reasons that contribute to my poker improvement.


1. I do not get bored. When I get bored, I look for actions. Consequently, all my stupid plays proceed cost me dearly.

2. My focus has improved. Listening requires focus and poker certaintly needs one, also. At first, podcast hurt my focus on poker but now, my focus improved exponentially.

3. Poker is a brain game. What other way can you think of to help your brain grow? Gaining knowledge certinaly is the answer, my friend. My thought process is much deeper now and my read is spot on!


Now here are the podcast list I listen to and that you might enjoy while playing poker

1. Global News - BBC World Service

2. HBR IdeaCast - Harvard Business Review

3. NPR Topic: Economy Podcast

4. NPR: Planet Money Podcast

5. The Economist: All Audio

6. Freakonomics Radio

7. 60 Minutes: Full Audio

and more...


It's fun and learning. You do not need to pick from my list. You can go find your own but choose something that can help your personal growth. Cheers!
