Default Am I the only person playing online poker...

...that physically stacks poker chips in front of me to represent my stack size in whichever tournament I am playing? I find it helps me make decisions that may be for a good percentage of my stack, and it also gives me practice handling my chips for when I play live. Does anyone else do this while they play online?

I have a stack of ten chips I do tricks with, but no, the stack is in no way correlated with my stack in any tournaments I am playing.

Odd practice, my guess is you're alone on that one. [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I'm also curious, do you physically count your bets out and move them forward?
