Just Before you Tilt

Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler claims never to have looked over the shadow of an upcoming tilt – they are either telling a lie or they have not been betting very long. This does not mean of course that every player has gone on tilt in the past, some players have wonderful willpower and take their losses as a hit and leave it at that. To be a great poker gambler, it is extremely crucial to appraise your successes and your losses in a similar way – with little emotion. You play the match the same way you did after taking a difficult beat as you would after winning a great hand. Most of the poker masters are not tempted by tilting after an awful loss as they are highly professional and you really should be to.

You must understand that you can’t win every hand you’re in, even if you are strongly favored. Hands that typically make people go on tilt are hands that you were the favorite or at a minimum thought you were up until you were rivered and you burned a large chunk of your stack. Awful beats are going to develop. Face that reality right now, I will say it once more – if your brother enjoys cards, if your parents enjoy cards, if your grandpa plays cards – They have all had bad losses sometime. It’s an unavoidable effect of participating in Texas Holdem, or really any type of poker.

After all we are assumingly (almost all of us) playing poker for one purpose – to earn a profit, it certainly makes sense that we will bet appropriately to maximize profits. Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a $100 deposit, and you take a large blow in a No Limits game and your bankroll is at one hundred and twenty dollars. You’ve lost eighty dollars in a hand where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and held a ten to one edge. And that fish! He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a brand-new player to start tilting. They just lost too much cash on one round that they should have won and they are aggravated
