Ah, the steam. If a poker player states at no time to have looked over the shadow of an approaching poker tilt – they are either lying or they have not been gambling for a long time. This does not mean obviously that everyone has been on tilt before, some people have wonderful control and take their squanderings as a defeat and leave it at that. To be a good poker player, it’s absolutely important to approach your wins and your losses in the same way – with no emotion. You play the game the same way you did after taking a hard loss as you would after winning a big hand. All poker masters are not enticed by tilting after an awful defeat as they are very accomplished and you should be to.

You have to understand that you won’t win each and every hand you are in, even if you are strongly favored. Hands which usually cause people go on tilt are hands you were the leading choice or at a minimum thought you were up until you were side swiped and you squandered a gigantic portion of your stack. Bad defeats are bound to develop. Embrace that fact right now, I will say it once more – if your brother plays cards, if your parents enjoy cards, if your grandpa plays cards – They have all had bad defeats at some point. It is an inevitable outcome of playing Texas Holdem, or in reality any kind of poker.

Since we are assumingly (most of us) playing poker for one reason – to make a profit, it would make sense that we will bet accordingly to maximize winnings. Now let us say you are up $100 off of a $100 deposit, and you suffer a gigantic blow in a NL game and your bankroll is at one hundred and twenty dollars. You’ve burned eighty dollars in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and held a ten to one advantage. And that fish! He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic opportunity for a fresh gambler to begin tilting. They really just burned too much $$$$ on one round that they really should have won and they’re angry
