One of the goals I have accomplished is playing a lot of hands of poker. Playing them well – that is another thing.  I have been playing most of these games using a notebook computer, playing while sitting on the couch with the televison on.

On positve note, I have been able to keep up with the “Tweets” I receive on my cell phone and also have caught up with all of the TV shows that my wife and I record on our DVR and then watch them when we want to.

Although my wife, Diane, does not play a lot of poker, she thoroughly enjoys this season’s High Stakes Poker Series. We both look forward to seeing what will happen next. The action, the side beds, the different styles of each of the Pro Poker players is interesting to watch and study.  I also share with her the more intesting “tweets” that I receive. Of late the tweets have been interesing and are from @TexDolly@RealAnnieDuke and @WhorePitVipers, a name that some believe is really Annie Duke. The brouhaha is about comments made by Joan Rivers to Annie Duke during a recent showing of Celebrity Apprentice on NBC.

Occasionally during a poker session, with the TV going, I am chatting with fellow #TPT/TPTE player @rawrstar.

This might seem like a lot activity happening around me when I am playing, but keep in mind that at a brick and mortar casino, the televisions are going, hundreds of people are talking, music is playing, and the over all atmosphere is semi-controlled chaos.

When you play online, where do you play? Are you by yourself? Do you have music or television going? Are you multi-tasking while playing? What conditions are best for your optimal playing?
