Ah, the steam. If a poker enthusiast claims never to have stared faced over the barrel of an upcoming poker tilt – they are either lying or they haven’t been betting very long. This does not indicate obviously that everyone has been on tilt in the past, a handful of players have great willpower and take their losses as a defeat and leave it at that. To be a good poker player, it’s absolutely important to treat your successes and your losses in the same manner – with no emotion. You compete in the game the same way you did after taking a tough loss like you would after winning a great hand. Most of the poker masters are not enticed by tilting after an awful loss as they are highly experienced and you must be to.

You have to understand that you won’t win each and every hand you are in, regardless if you are heavily favored. Hands that commonly cause players to go on tilt are hands you were the favored or at a minimum thought you were until you were rivered and you squandered a large portion of your stack. Awful beats are bound to develop. Accept that certainty right now, I will say it once more – if your sister enjoys cards, if your mother enjoys cards, if your grandpa enjoys cards – They have all had poor beats at some point. It is an inevitable experience of competing in Hold’em, or really any kind of poker.

After all we are assumingly (almost all of us) playing poker for a single purpose – to make a profit, it does make sense that we will gamble accordingly to maximize profits. Now let us say you are up $100 off of a $100 deposit, and you suffer a gigantic hit in a NL game and your stack is down to one hundred and twenty dollars. You’ve lost $80 in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and enjoyed a ten to one edge. And that guy! He bled you dry on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a quintessential choice for a new gambler to begin tilting. They basically burned too much $$$$ on one round that they should have won and they are aggravated
