Right Before you Tilt

Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker enthusiast states never to have peered down the barrel of a looming tilt – they’re either lying or they have not been playing long enough. This doesn’t infer of course that each and every one has gone on steam before, a handful of players have great willpower and carry their losses as a loss and keep it at that. To be a powerful poker player, it is especially important to treat your wins and your defeats in the same way – with no emotion. You play the game in the same manner you did after taking a hard beat like you would after winning a big hand. Many of the poker pros are not tempted by tilting following a horrible loss as they are incredibly experienced and you should be to.

You must be certain that you cannot win each hand you’re in, regardless if you are strongly favored. Hands which commonly cause people go on tilt are hands you were the favored or at a minimum thought you were up until you were side swiped and you burned a big chunk of your stack. Bad beats are going to develop. Embrace that certainty right now, I’ll say it once more – if your sister enjoys cards, if your parents play cards, if your grandparents enjoy cards – We all have poor beats sometime. It is an unavoidable effect of competing in Holdem, or for that matter any type of poker.

After all we are assumingly (most of us) in the game for one purpose – to acquire cash, it will make sense that we would bet accordingly to maximize our profit potential. Now let us say you are up one hundred dollars off of a $100 deposit, and you take a huge blow in a No Limits game and your stack is only has remaining $120. You’ve burned $80 in a round where you were assured to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and held a ten to one advantage. And that amateur! He banged you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic choice for a brand-new player to start tilting. They really just lost too much cash on one hand that they should have won and they are angry
