Just Before you Tilt

Ah, the tilt. If a poker player claims never to have peered down the shadow of an approaching poker steam – they’re either lying or they have not been betting very long. This does not imply of course that everyone has been on tilt in the past, some players have awesome control and carry their squanderings as a loss and keep it at that. To be a great poker player, it’s absolutely critical to approach your wins and your losses in a similar way – with no emotion. You compete in the game in the same manner you did following a hard beat as you would after winning a great hand. All poker masters are not charmed by tilting following a horrible defeat as they are highly professional and you must be to.

You have to be certain that you won’t win each and every hand you’re in, even if you are heavily favored. Hands which commonly make players to go on tilt are hands that you were the favored or at least believed you were up until you were hit and you lost a gigantic chunk of your stack. Bad defeats are going to develop. Face that fact right now, I’ll say it once again – if your brother plays cards, if your parents enjoy cards, if your grandpa plays cards – They have all had poor defeats sometime. It’s an unavoidable outcome of playing Texas Hold’em, or for that matter any type of poker.

Since we are assumingly (almost all of us) in the game for a single purpose – to win cash, it certainly makes sense that we would wager accordingly to maximize our profit potential. Now let us say you are up one hundred dollars off of a $100 deposit, and you suffer a big hit in a No Limits 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 went all-in on the flop and held a ten to one edge. And that guy! He bled you dry on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a classic opportunity for a new gambler to begin tilting. They just blew too much money on one round that they should have won and they’re pissed
