Ah, the steam. If a poker enthusiast states never to have stared faced down the barrel of an approaching poker tilt – they’re either lying or they haven’t been gambling very long. This doesn’t indicate obviously that each and every one has been on steam before, a few players have excellent control and carry their losses as a loss and leave it at that. To be a good poker player, it is very important to treat your wins and your losses in an identical way – with no emotion. You compete in the game in the same manner you did after taking a hard beat like you would after winning a great hand. Most of the poker pros are not tempted by tilting after a horrible beat as they are highly professional and you should be to.

You have to be aware that you can’t win every hand you are in, regardless if you are the front runner. Hands that usually make people go on tilt are hands that you were the favorite or at a minimum believed you were up until you were rivered and you lost a big portion of your bankroll. Bad beats are going to happen. Embrace that idea right now, I will say it again – if your siblings play cards, if your father enjoys cards, if your grandpa enjoys cards – They have all had bad defeats at some point. It is an unavoidable effect of competing in Hold’em, or for that matter any kind of poker.

Since we are assumingly (nearly all of us) in the game for a single reason – to win cash, it does make sense that we would wager accordingly to maximize profits. Now let’s say you are up one hundred dollars off of a $100 deposit, and you suffer a huge hit in a No Limits game and your bankroll is only has remaining $120. You have burned eighty dollars in a round where you were sure to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a 10 – 1 edge. And that guy! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic choice for a fresh player to begin tilting. They just burned too much $$$$ on one round that they should have won and they are aggravated
