3 things you do while you are playing online poker


Recommended Posts

No I'm not talking about wanker.gif so don't even put that in, I beat you out of it.Of coarse there is Music and we all have already touched town on that topic; so I wanted to see what the FCP community does while they play online poker. Lets face it, there is a time where you need something extra to do, especially during a MTT. So name something you do, as crazy as it may beextrasmashed.gifI'll start it off in Order:1. Shuffling Chipsshuffle2.jpg2. Chinese Energy balls china3.jpg3. Zero Fog Blaster zeroblaster_ani.gifI usually shuffle chips the most but when my wrist starts hurting, I'll go for the chinese energy balls to heal me up. The zero fog is just addictive and is a nice toy to fugg with when you have a minute of nothing to do..... it fills that moment up with fun! Weeeeeeeewilly_nilly.gif

Physically, I don't think I do anything, but scream at the computer. Wait, I take that back. I tie flies for flyfishing quite frequently. Other than that, I study stocks. I would like to put a keyboard next to my computer in the near future and work on blues riffs. On the same note, I've been wanting to learn guitar, so I'll have to decide which. Maybe I'll alternate days between keyboard and guitar.

Well seeing that I'm playing now... I'll list off what I'm doing ;)Got 2 Paradise Tables up, and 1 UB Mini-View.Windows Media Player Up, Always creating new Playlists for my mood.3 Maxthon browswers up (just like firefox) each has like 5-10 seperate webpages up... ehhhh.Scheduling Classes right now, With Music on, MSN/AIM chatting away.Slowing down a bit... was sending out e-mails for the possible FCP Clothing line, and my own website earlier, now that all the "administrative" junk is out of the way I'm catching up on other things.I only have 1 monit0r right now, sent the other one back home as I only have a week left of classes.

Jayson,How can you play with the UB mini-view??? I find it unbearable.
I played strictly UB for 3 years.. I got used to it man, it really is pretty amazing, I wish more sites had the feature.

Maybe the mini-view feature is better for limit games. I only play NL s & gs and MTTs on UB so I'm not sure. I save the limit games for the Party pond. I can't believe I've been a member of UB for like 3 years now also. Last week for the first time they sent me a CD of their new software in the mail ala AOL. This is the first time I have ever received anything like this from an online poker room.

1. Take notes2. Watch the other tables average pot size and flop percentages so i can make sure i am playing the best tables.3. keep track of my stacks when i change tables to make sure i am keeping 100% accurate records.

I have two 20" flat panels and have a lot of junk up. Also, some work related stuff on a 2nd PC which ties to the 2nd input on one monitor.Tivo and phone become the secondary things outside of what is on the screens.As an aside, I recommend Synergy to anyone who wants to control multiple computers with one keyboard/mouse - it even let's you cut and paste from one machine to another and it works across Mac/Unix/Windows.
