Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker gambler claims never to have peered down the shadow of an upcoming poker tilt – they are either lying or they have not been wagering for a long time. This does not infer obviously that every poker player has gone on steam in the past, some people have excellent willpower and carry their losses as a loss and keep it at that. To be a good poker gambler, it is especially critical to appraise your successes and your losses in a similar way – with no emotion. You compete in the game the same way you did after taking a tough loss as you would after winning a huge hand. All poker pros are not tempted by tilting after a bad beat as they are incredibly experienced and you should be to.

You need to understand that you can’t win each hand you are in, regardless if you are strongly favored. Hands which usually make people go on tilt are hands you were the favorite or at a minimum thought you were up until you were hit and you lost a huge portion of your bankroll. Bad losses are going to happen. Face that fact right now, I’ll say it again – if your sister plays cards, if your mother plays cards, if your grandpa plays cards – We all have bad beats at some point. It’s an unavoidable effect of playing Hold’em, or for that matter any kind of poker.

Seeing as we are assumingly (nearly all of us) playing poker for one purpose – to win $$$$, it certainly makes sense that we would bet appropriately to maximize winnings. Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you suffer a huge hit in a NL game and your bankroll is down to $120. You’ve lost $80 in a hand where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a ten to one advantage. And that fiend! He banged you out on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a classic choice for a fresh player to begin tilting. They basically lost too much $$$$ on one round that they should have won and they are pissed
