Right Before you Tilt

Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker enthusiast claims at no time to have looked down the barrel of an approaching tilt – they are either lying or they have not been competing for a long time. This doesn’t mean obviously that every poker player has gone on tilt in the past, a few people have wonderful willpower and take their losses as a loss and keep it at that. To be a great poker gambler, it is very critical to treat your successes and your losses in an identical way – with no emotion. You compete in the game the same way you did following a tough beat as you would after winning a huge hand. All poker pros are not tempted by tilting following a bad loss as they are incredibly professional and you should be to.

You have to be certain that you can’t win each hand you’re in, even if you are the strongest player. Hands that typically cause people go on tilt are hands that you were the leading choice or at least thought you were until you were side swiped and you squandered a gigantic portion of your stack. Bad beats are bound to develop. Face that idea right now, I will say it once again – if your sister enjoys cards, if your father enjoys cards, if your grandma enjoys cards – We all have bad defeats sometime. It is an inevitable outcome of playing Texas Hold’em, or for that matter any type of poker.

Now let us say you are up one hundred dollars off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you suffer a big hit in a NL game and your stack is at $120. You have burned eighty dollars in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a ten to one edge. And that amateur! He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic opportunity for a new bettor to start tilting. They basically lost too much cash on one round that they really should have won and they are angry
