• Before you Tilt

    Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler states at no time to have peered over the barrel of a looming poker steam – they’re either lying or they haven’t been competing very long. This doesn’t mean obviously that everyone has gone on tilt before, a handful of people have great willpower and take their losses as a hit and leave it at that. To be a strong poker player, it is absolutely important to approach your successes and your defeats in a similar manner – with little emotion. You compete in the game in the same manner you did after taking a difficult beat as you would after winning a big hand. Many of the poker pros are not attracted by tilting after an awful defeat as they are incredibly seasoned and you really should be to.

    You have to understand that you will not win each hand you’re in, regardless if you are the strongest player. Hands which typically cause players to go on tilt are hands you were the favored or at least believed you were until you were side swiped and you squandered a huge chunk of your stack. Bad beats are going to develop. Face that fact right now, I’ll say it once more – if your siblings enjoy cards, if your parents play cards, if your grandparents enjoy cards – They have all had bad defeats at some point. It’s an unavoidable effect of competing in Texas Holdem, or in reality any kind of poker.

    Seeing as we are assumingly (nearly all of us) playing poker for a single purpose – to acquire money, it does make sense that we would wager accordingly to maximize profits. Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you suffer a gigantic hit in a NL game and your bankroll is down to $120. You’ve squandered eighty dollars in a hand where you were sure to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and held a 10 – 1 edge. And that amateur! He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic opportunity for a fresh player to start tilting. They really just blew too much money on one round that they really should have won and they are aggravated
