Ah, the tilt. If a poker enthusiast claims at no time to have peered down the barrel of an upcoming tilt – they are either lying or they haven’t been wagering for a long time. This does not infer of course that every poker player has gone on tilt in the past, a few people have wonderful control and carry their losses as a loss and leave it at that. To be a strong poker gambler, it is extremely crucial to approach your successes and your losses in the same manner – with no emotion. You compete in the game the same way you did following a tough loss as you would after winning a great hand. Most of the poker pros are not attracted by tilting after an awful loss as they are incredibly experienced and you should be to.

You have to be aware that you will not win each and every hand you are in, even if you are the front runner. Hands which typically cause players to go on tilt are hands you were the favored or at least believed you were until you were hit and you lost a big portion of your stack. Awful losses are going to happen. Embrace that idea right now, I’ll say it again – if your brother plays cards, if your parents play cards, if your grandma plays cards – They have all had bad beats sometime. It’s an unavoidable effect of participating in Texas Hold’em, or really any kind of poker.

Seeing as we are assumingly (most of us) in the game for a single purpose – to earn money, it would make sense that we will play accordingly to maximize our profit potential. Now let us say you are up one hundred dollars off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you take a large blow in a NL game and your stack is at one hundred and twenty dollars. You have burned $80 in a hand where you were assured to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a 10 – 1 edge. And that amateur! He bled you dry on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a new bettor to begin tilting. They basically lost too much money on one round that they really should have won and they’re angry
