Ah, the poker steam. If a poker enthusiast claims never to have stared faced down the shadow of an approaching steam – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been competing long enough. This does not infer of course that every player has gone on tilt in the past, some players have great control and carry their losses as a loss and leave it at that. To be a strong poker player, it is extremely critical to treat your wins and your defeats in an identical way – with no emotion. You play the match in the same manner you did after taking a difficult beat as you would after winning a great hand. All poker masters are not charmed by tilting after an awful beat as they are highly experienced and you really should be to.
You must be certain that you will not win each and every hand you’re in, even if you are the strongest player. Hands that typically make players to go on tilt are hands you were the favorite or at least believed you were up until you were hit and you lost a huge chunk of your bankroll. Bad defeats are going to develop. Face that idea right now, I’ll say it once more – if your sister plays cards, if your mother enjoys cards, if your grandparents play cards – We all have poor beats at some point. It’s an inevitable outcome of playing Texas Hold’em, or in reality any kind of poker.
Since we are assumingly (nearly all of us) playing poker for one purpose – to win cash, it certainly makes sense that we would gamble accordingly to maximize winnings. Now let’s say you are up one hundred dollars off of a $100 deposit, and you take a gigantic hit in a NL game and your stack is only has remaining $120. You have lost $80 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 guy! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic choice for a new player to start tilting. They basically lost too much $$$$ on one hand that they should have won and they are aggravated
