• Just Before you Tilt

    [ English ]

    Ah, the tilt. If a poker gambler claims never to have looked over the barrel of a looming steam – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been betting long enough. This doesn’t mean of course that each and every one has been on tilt before, a few players have wonderful willpower and take their losses as a defeat and leave it at that. To be a great poker gambler, it is absolutely critical to approach your wins and your defeats in a similar way – with no emotion. You participate in the match in the same manner you did following a difficult beat as you would after winning a great hand. All poker masters are not charmed by tilting after an awful defeat as they are highly professional and you should be to.

    You have to understand that you can’t win each hand you are in, even if you are strongly favored. Hands which commonly make people go on tilt are hands that you were the favored or at a minimum thought you were until you were rivered and you burned a large chunk of your stack. Awful beats are bound to happen. Face that fact right now, I’ll say it once again – if your siblings enjoy cards, if your father enjoys cards, if your grandparents play cards – We all have bad losses sometime. It’s an inevitable effect of competing in Texas Holdem, or really any type of poker.

    Seeing as we are assumingly (nearly all of us) playing poker for one reason – to win cash, it certainly makes sense that we will gamble accordingly to maximize profits. Now let us say you are up $100 off of a $100 deposit, and you take a huge blow in a NL game and your stack is only has remaining $120. You have squandered eighty dollars in a hand where you were certain to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a 10 – 1 advantage. And that fish! He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a quintessential choice for a fresh player to begin tilting. They just burned too much $$$$ on one hand that they really should have won and they are pissed
