Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker gambler states never to have stared faced over the barrel of a looming poker steam – they are either lying or they have not been competing for a long time. This does not mean obviously that every poker player has gone on tilt in the past, some people have awesome willpower and take their losses as a hit and leave it at that. To be a great poker gambler, it is especially critical to approach your successes and your defeats in a similar way – with no emotion.

Now let’s say you are up one hundred dollars off of a 100 dollars deposit, and you take a large blow in a No Limits game and your stack is down to one hundred and twenty dollars. You have burned eighty dollars in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and had a 10 – 1 advantage. And that fiend! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential choice for a fresh bettor to begin tilting. They basically burned too much $$$$ on one hand that they really should have won and they’re agitated
