Playing live poker - You need an Ipod! You need a playlist!

GOD ITS SO SLOOOOOW.
Playing online( no longer an option for us USA folk D: ) is something great. You get to run through several hundred hands an hour, see many different situations, and get put into all sorts of strange spots.. all in the span of just hours. Even while you're card dead online, you can browse through your Facebook, run through YouTube, and basically fill the void very easily, and very comfortably. With that being said, I HATE PLAYING POKER LIVE.



Live poker feels like such a chore sometimes. First the long drive, then the measly 40 or so hands an hour, crazy rake, and having to sit through babble of self-proclaimed 'geniuses of the game'. Wouldn't be a problem at all, if there was some sort of escape.. but there isn't! You can't open window after window of things to keep you entertained(well you can with a smart phone, but its not the same), and you certainly don't have the same comfort level as being at home in your underwear(lolwut).

The best thing you do have though is an MP3 player! The easiest way to escape during the dry runs of cards, the mindless babbling of annoying know-it-alls, and just something to keep you entertained without wanting to rip the hair out of your head!

Here's some tracks I have on my 'OMG I HATE LIVE POKER" playlist:

Standard Fare - Philadelphia - Pretty indie-pop, could kind of envision myself on a road-trip, escaping this horrible casino already..

Young the Giant - My Body - Just really like the bass on this track. Pretty lively, without being waaaaaay too  much.

Drybes - Bing Blang Blaow - Wouldn't be a poker playlist without this song! I'm already rubbing these live donkey's cash on my titties!

  15. Yeah, that's one of the things I hate about playing live. It's fun... but fun to sitting around forever bored off your ass ratio is just not good enough.

    As for gambling, I dislike this form, but I like to gamble with more serious things which isn't so smart sometimes
