Just Before you Tilt

Ah, the steam. If a poker player states at no time to have looked down the shadow of an upcoming poker tilt – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been playing very long. This doesn’t imply obviously that every poker player has been on steam in the past, a handful of players have awesome willpower and take their squanderings as a hit and leave it at that. To be a powerful poker player, it is especially critical to approach your wins and your defeats in an identical way – with no emotion.

You’ve lost $80 in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a 10 – 1 edge. And that fish! He bled you dry on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a classic choice for a new gambler to start tilting. They basically blew too much $$$$ on one hand that they really should have won and they’re pissed
