Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker player claims at no time to have looked down the barrel of an approaching steam - they are either lying or they have not been betting very long. This does not indicate of course that everyone has been on tilt before, some players have wonderful willpower and carry their losses as a loss and leave it at that. To be a brilliant poker player, it's absolutely critical to appraise your wins and your losses in the same manner - with little emotion. You play the match in the same manner you did following a tough loss as you would after winning a great hand. Many of the poker pros are not enticed by tilting following a bad beat as they are particularly accomplished and you really should be to.

You must understand that you will not win every hand you are in, even if you are strongly favored. Hands that commonly make people go on tilt are hands that you were the favorite or at a minimum thought you were up until you were side swiped and you lost a gigantic chunk of your stack. Awful losses are going to happen. Accept that fact right now, I will say it once more - if your sister plays cards, if your mother plays cards, if your grandpa plays cards - They have all had poor beats sometime. It's an unavoidable effect of participating in Holdem, or for that matter any type of poker.

After all we are assumingly (nearly all of us) in the game for one reason - to win $$$$, it does make sense that we would wager appropriately to maximize our profit potential. Now let's say you are up one hundred dollars off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you take a large hit in a No Limits game and your bankroll is down to $120. You have burned eighty dollars in a hand where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and held a 10 - 1 edge. And that fiend! He bled you dry on the river? - Well stop right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a new player to start tilting. They basically blew too much $$$$ on one hand that they should have won and they're pissed
