Just Before you Tilt

Ah, the steam. If a poker player claims at no time to have peered down the shadow of an approaching steam – they’re either telling a lie or they have not been gambling long enough. This does not indicate of course that every poker player has been on tilt in the past, a few people have excellent willpower and carry their losses as a loss and leave it at that. To be a brilliant poker gambler, it’s very important to treat your successes and your defeats in the same manner – with no emotion. You compete in the match in the same manner you did after taking a difficult beat like you would after winning a great hand. All poker pros are not attracted by tilting after an awful loss as they are incredibly accomplished and you should be to.

You must be aware that you will not win each and every hand you are in, even if you are the front runner. Hands which normally cause people go on tilt are hands you were the favored or at least believed you were up until you were hit and you burned a large portion of your bankroll. Bad beats are bound to develop. Embrace that reality right now, I will say it again – if your brother plays cards, if your mother plays cards, if your grandma plays cards – They have all had poor defeats sometime. It’s an inevitable experience of participating in Hold’em, or for that matter any type of poker.

Since we are assumingly (almost all of us) in the game for one reason – to acquire money, it does make sense that we would gamble accordingly to maximize our profit potential. Now let us say you are up one hundred dollars off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you suffer a gigantic blow in a NL game and your bankroll is at $120. You have lost $80 in a hand where you were assured to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and had a ten to one advantage. And that fiend! He bled you dry on the river? – Well hold it right here. This is a quintessential opportunity for a brand-new player to begin tilting. They just lost too much $$$$ on one hand that they should have won and they are pissed
