Top 5 Albums to Play Poker To
Music is the secret weapon of the poker player. Since I like you PL.com readers, but mostly because I'm getting paid to do it, I'm going to share with you my own secret weapons.

Each style of music, or specific album, works best with a specific style of play. When you want to rake in the pots.

3) Wilderness Crew - S/T

Genre: Hip Hop/Funk

Poker style: Active, Aggressive, Strong, Solid

Recommended track for maximum poker earnings: "The Push"

Here's your chance to get on board with a band before they blow up (and they will). If you're looking for super chill, fun, upbeat, summer music, you really have to look no further than the still almost-unknown Wilderness Crew.

This is my go-to album for poker. I almost always start my sessions with this album and frequently end them on it as well.

Give it a listen, you won't be disappointed.

2) Rage Against the Machine - S/T

Genre: Rock

Poker style: Aggressive to Hyper-Aggressive/Nutbar

Recommended track for maximum poker earnings: "Take the Power Back"

Good poker players know that it's imperative they change gears. RATM is the go-to album for when you need to kick it into high gear and play some Full Tilt Pokerpower poker[/Link]. It has pure RTFO energy but keeps you in the 4/4 groove.

1) Van Morrison - Astral Weeks

Genre: Soul

Poker style: Calm, Tight, ABC, Patient

Recommended track for maximum poker earnings: "Sweet Thing"

This is a masterpiece of an album. If you haven't listened to it, I recommend you do so. If you don't want to take my word for it, check out possibly the sickest review of an album ever written.

This brilliant essay was written by the greatest rock journalist of all time, Lester Bangs (You might remember Philip Seymour Hoffman's portrayal of Bangs in the movie Almost Famous).

This album is a sedative for your soul. When you need to focus, keep grounded, and play smart, tight, ABC poker, this album is a great choice.
