In Advance of a Tilt
March 22nd, 2016 by Miranda

Ah, the steam. If a poker player states at no time to have peered over the barrel of an approaching tilt – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been competing for a long time. This does not mean obviously that every player has gone on tilt before, a few players have wonderful control and carry their losses as a hit and keep it at that. To be a strong poker player, it is extremely crucial to approach your wins and your losses in a similar way – with no emotion. You play the game in the same manner you did after taking a hard loss as you would after winning a great hand. All poker pros are not tempted by tilting following a bad beat as they are highly seasoned and you really should be to.

You must understand that you won’t win every hand you are in, even if you are the front runner. Hands which normally cause players to go on tilt are hands that you were the leading choice or at least thought you were until you were side swiped and you burned a big portion of your stack. Awful defeats are going to happen. Face that reality right now, I will say it once more – if your brother enjoys cards, if your parents enjoy cards, if your grandparents play cards – They have all had bad beats at some point. It is an unavoidable effect of participating in Texas Holdem, or in reality any kind of poker.

Now let’s say you are up $100 off of a $100 deposit, and you take a large blow in a No Limits game and your bankroll is down to $120. 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 edge. And that amateur! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic opportunity for a fresh player to begin tilting. They really just lost too much cash on one hand that they should have won and they are pissed
