Just Before you Tilt

[ English ]

Ah, the poker steam. If a poker gambler claims at no time to have stared faced over the barrel of an upcoming poker steam – they’re either lying or they have not been gambling for a long time. This does not indicate obviously that every player has been on steam in the past, some players have great control and carry their losses as a defeat and keep it at that. To be a brilliant poker player, it’s very important to treat your wins and your losses in the same way – with little emotion. You compete in the match the same way you did after taking a hard loss as you would after winning a big hand. Most of the poker pros are not charmed by tilting after an awful loss as they are very seasoned and you really should be to.

You need to be certain that you cannot win every hand you’re in, regardless if you are heavily favored. Hands that typically make people go on tilt are hands you were the favorite or at least believed you were until you were hit and you lost a huge portion of your stack. Awful defeats are going to happen. Face that fact right now, I’ll say it once again – if your brother enjoys cards, if your parents play cards, if your grandpa enjoys cards – We all have poor losses at some point. It’s an unavoidable effect of participating in Texas Holdem, or really any type of poker.

Since we are assumingly (almost all of us) in the game for a single purpose – to earn cash, it would make sense that we will gamble accordingly to maximize our profit potential. Now let us say you are up one hundred dollars off of a $100 deposit, and you take a huge hit in a NL game and your stack is at $120. You have squandered $80 in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and held a 10 – 1 edge. And that guy! He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic choice for a new gambler to start tilting. They really just blew too much $$$$ on one round that they really should have won and they are pissed
