Ah, the tilt. If a poker player claims never to have peered down the barrel of a looming poker tilt – they’re either lying or they haven’t been betting for a long time. This doesn’t indicate of course that every player has gone on tilt in the past, some people have awesome control and carry their losses as a defeat and keep it at that. To be a great poker gambler, it is absolutely critical to approach your wins and your losses in an identical way – with no emotion. You participate in the game in the same manner you did following a tough beat as you would after winning a great hand. Most of the poker pros are not tempted by tilting after a bad defeat as they are particularly accomplished and you really should be to.

You need to be aware that you will not win every hand you’re in, regardless if you are the strongest player. Hands which frequently cause players to go on tilt are hands you were the leading choice or at least believed you were up until you were rivered and you burned a large portion of your stack. Awful defeats are bound to happen. Accept that fact right now, I’ll say it once again – if your brother plays cards, if your parents play cards, if your grandma enjoys cards – We all have bad losses sometime. It’s an unavoidable outcome of competing in Holdem, or really any type of poker.

Seeing as we are assumingly (nearly all of us) in the game for one purpose – to earn a profit, it certainly makes sense that we will bet accordingly to maximize winnings. Now let’s say you are up one hundred dollars off of a $100 deposit, and you take a gigantic hit in a No Limits game and your stack is at $120. You have burned $80 in a hand where you were sure to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a 10 – 1 advantage. And that fiend! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic opportunity for a new player to start tilting. They just burned too much $$$$ on one hand that they should have won and they’re pissed
