Right Before you Tilt

[ English ]

Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler states never to have stared faced down the shadow of an approaching steam – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been playing for a long time. This doesn’t mean of course that every player has gone on tilt in the past, a handful of players have awesome control and carry their losses as a hit and leave it at that. To be a good poker player, it is very crucial to treat your successes and your losses in a similar manner – with no emotion. You play the match the same way you did after taking a difficult loss like you would after winning a great hand. Most of the poker pros are not charmed by tilting following a horrible loss as they are highly professional and you should be to.

Hands that usually cause players to go on tilt are hands that you were the favorite or at a minimum thought you were up until you were rivered and you lost a large chunk of your stack. Bad defeats are going to happen. Embrace that fact right now, I will say it once more – if your sister plays cards, if your parents play cards, if your grandma plays cards – They have all had poor beats at some point.

You’ve burned $80 in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and enjoyed a ten to one advantage. And that amateur! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential choice for a new bettor to begin tilting. They really just burned too much $$$$ on one round that they really should have won and they’re angry
