Right Before you Tilt

[ English ]

Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker gambler states at no time to have looked down the shadow of a looming poker steam – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been playing for a long time. This doesn’t indicate obviously that every player has been on tilt before, a few people have great willpower and carry their losses as a defeat and leave it at that. To be a brilliant poker gambler, it’s absolutely important to treat your successes and your losses in the same way – with no emotion. You play the game the same way you did following a hard beat like you would after winning a great hand. All poker masters are not tempted by tilting after a bad loss as they are very experienced and you must be to.

You need to understand that you can not win each and every hand you are in, regardless if you are the front runner. Hands that normally cause players to go on tilt are hands you were the favorite or at least believed you were until you were rivered and you lost a large portion of your bankroll. Bad losses are bound to happen. Embrace that fact right now, I’ll say it again – if your brother plays cards, if your father plays cards, if your grandparents play cards – They have all had poor losses sometime. It is an inevitable outcome of participating in Holdem, or for that matter any type of poker.

Since we are assumingly (almost all of us) playing poker for a single purpose – to earn $$$$, it will make sense that we will gamble accordingly to maximize winnings. Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you suffer a big hit in a No Limits game and your stack is down to $120. You’ve squandered $80 in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and enjoyed a 10 – 1 edge. And that amateur! He banged you out on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a quintessential choice for a fresh gambler to begin tilting. They basically burned too much money on one round that they should have won and they’re pissed
