Right Before you Tilt

Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker player states at no time to have looked over the shadow of an approaching tilt – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been competing very long. This doesn’t mean of course that each and every one has been on tilt before, a number of people have wonderful control and take their losses as a hit and leave it at that. To be a great poker gambler, it is extremely important to appraise your wins and your losses in a similar way – with little emotion. You compete in the match in the same manner you did after taking a tough loss like you would after winning a huge hand. All poker pros are not attracted by tilting following a horrible beat as they are very professional and you should be to.

You need to be aware that you cannot win each and every hand you are in, even if you are heavily favored. Hands which typically cause people go on tilt are hands you were the leading choice or at a minimum believed you were until you were rivered and you burned a gigantic portion of your stack. Awful losses are going to happen. Face that certainty right now, I’ll say it once again – if your brother plays cards, if your father enjoys cards, if your grandma plays cards – We all have bad beats at some point. It is an unavoidable effect of playing Hold’em, or for that matter any kind of poker.

After all we are assumingly (most of us) playing poker for one purpose – to win cash, it would make sense that we would bet accordingly to maximize our profit potential. Now let us say you are up $100 off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you suffer a huge hit in a No Limits game and your stack is down to $120. You’ve lost eighty dollars in a hand where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and enjoyed a 10 – 1 advantage. And that amateur! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a new bettor to begin tilting. They really just lost too much money on one round that they really should have won and they are angry
