• In Advance of a Tilt

    Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker player claims at no time to have stared faced down the barrel of an approaching steam – they are either lying or they have not been gambling very long. This does not mean of course that every player has been on tilt in the past, a number of players have great willpower and carry their losses as a hit and leave it at that. To be a powerful poker gambler, it’s especially important to treat your wins and your losses in the same way – with no emotion. You play the match the same way you did after taking a hard beat as you would after winning a great hand. Many of the poker pros are not charmed by tilting following a bad defeat as they are particularly experienced and you should be to.

    You have to be certain that you can not win each hand you are in, even if you are heavily favored. Hands which commonly make players to go on tilt are hands that you were the favored or at a minimum believed you were until you were side swiped and you burned a huge chunk of your bankroll. Bad beats are going to happen. Embrace that fact right now, I will say it once more – if your sister enjoys cards, if your parents enjoy cards, if your grandma plays cards – They have all had poor losses sometime. It is an unavoidable experience of playing Holdem, or really any type of poker.

    Since we are assumingly (most of us) playing poker for one reason – to acquire a profit, it certainly makes sense that we would bet accordingly to maximize profits. Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you suffer a big hit in a NL game and your bankroll is at one hundred and twenty dollars. You have lost eighty dollars in a round where you were sure to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and enjoyed a ten to one edge. And that fiend! He banged you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a quintessential choice for a new player to start tilting. They just burned too much $$$$ on one round that they should have won and they are pissed
