Just Before you Tilt

Ah, the tilt. If a poker player states never to have stared faced down the shadow of an approaching poker tilt – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been betting for a long time. This doesn’t imply of course that everyone has gone on tilt in the past, a handful of players have awesome control and carry their losses as a defeat and keep it at that. To be a good poker gambler, it’s extremely important to appraise your wins and your losses in a similar manner – with little emotion.

Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a $100 deposit, and you suffer a big blow in a NL game and your stack is down to one hundred and twenty dollars. You’ve lost $80 in a hand where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and enjoyed a ten to one advantage. And that amateur! He bled you dry on the river? – Well hold it right here. This is a classic opportunity for a fresh bettor to begin tilting. They really just blew too much money on one round that they really should have won and they’re agitated
