Before you Tilt

Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker enthusiast states never to have peered down the barrel of a looming tilt – they’re either lying or they haven’t been gambling very long. This does not indicate of course that each and every one has been on tilt in the past, some people have awesome willpower and carry their losses as a defeat and leave it at that. To be a great poker player, it is especially crucial to treat your wins and your defeats in an identical way – with no emotion.

You’ve squandered $80 in a hand where you were sure to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and enjoyed a ten to one advantage. And that amateur!
