These Hip Hop playlists make you change at the right time.
In the early stages of a large online tournament you don't want to go crazy with speculative hands. The key is to sit back and let other players make the mistakes.
You might want to bluff once in a while to pick up some smaller pots, but when you commit a large portion of your stack your cards should have some showdown value.
To get a laid-back playing style, have this playlist in your headphones:
