Before you Tilt

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker enthusiast claims at no time to have stared faced over the barrel of an approaching steam – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been competing very long. This does not imply obviously that every player has been on tilt in the past, a handful of players have great willpower and take their losses as a hit and keep it at that. To be a great poker player, it is absolutely crucial to appraise your wins and your losses in an identical way – with no emotion. You play the game in the same manner you did after taking a hard loss like you would after winning a big hand. Many of the poker pros are not tempted by tilting after a bad beat as they are very experienced and you should be to.

You have to understand that you will not win each and every hand you are in, even if you are the front runner. Hands which normally cause people go on tilt are hands that you were the favored or at least thought you were until you were hit and you lost a huge portion of your stack. Awful losses are going to develop. Accept that fact right now, I’ll say it again – if your brother plays cards, if your mother enjoys cards, if your grandparents enjoy cards – They have all had bad losses sometime. It’s an inevitable outcome of competing in Texas Holdem, or in reality any type of poker.

Since we are assumingly (almost all of us) playing poker for one reason – to make $$$$, it will make sense that we will wager appropriately to maximize our profit potential. Now let us say you are up $100 off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you take a large hit in a No Limits game and your bankroll is down to $120. You have lost $80 in a hand where you were assured to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and held a 10 – 1 advantage. And that amateur! He banged you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a quintessential choice for a new bettor to start tilting. They really just lost too much $$$$ on one hand that they should have won and they are pissed
