Before you Tilt

Ah, the tilt. If a poker enthusiast claims never to have peered down the barrel of an upcoming poker steam – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been betting very long. This does not mean obviously that each and every one has been on steam in the past, some people have wonderful control and carry their losses as a defeat and keep it at that. To be a great poker gambler, it’s absolutely important to appraise your wins and your defeats in an identical way – with no emotion. You play the match in the same manner you did following a tough beat as you would after winning a great hand. Most of the poker pros are not attracted by tilting after an awful defeat as they are highly experienced and you really should be to.

You must be certain that you cannot win every hand you are in, regardless if you are heavily favored. Hands that commonly cause people go on tilt are hands you were the favorite or at a minimum believed you were up until you were side swiped and you burned a big chunk of your bankroll. Bad beats are bound to develop. Face that certainty right now, I will say it once again – if your brother plays cards, if your mother plays cards, if your grandpa plays cards – They have all had poor losses at some point. It is an unavoidable outcome of playing Hold’em, or really any type of poker.

After all we are assumingly (most of us) playing poker for a single reason – to acquire cash, it does make sense that we would bet appropriately to maximize profits. Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a $100 deposit, and you suffer a huge hit in a No Limits game and your stack is down to one hundred and twenty dollars. You’ve squandered $80 in a hand where you were assured to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and held a ten to one advantage. And that amateur! He banged you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic choice for a new player to begin tilting. They really just burned too much cash on one hand that they really should have won and they’re aggravated
