Hi everybody, I hope all the active members of the PSO forums are doing great on the tables and getting many victories.

well, today I have to confess I was playing distracted with other pages and playing music...the consequences didn't wait... I was playing the latin american poker league LAPL and the bubble was being busted, I had around 18BB and was feeling comfortable, while the hand by hand play had my table paused... well i opened my music player and a blink before I clicked on one song to play it, the table popped up and i hit the all in button with a beautiful 79o and a player was all in already...I felt like sh... :X lesson learned... does stars have an option to confirm large bets to avoid this happenning? no need to say i wasn't as lucky as some maniacs who win with 73o over Aces lol

you have to find your comfort zone. if i dont play distracted i get distracted. I like to have music or a audio book in the background wile i play, but we are all (thank goodness) differant.

so find what is good for you and go with that.

off you blast so m&m though my headphones now

After a while you'll learn where to put things so they don't show up in a spot that will put you all in. You've had a tough lesson, learn from it.
