One shouldn't let bad moments to have big influence on the game. just like i everything else on life, one have to learn with mistakes and bad things that happen along the way, and by learn one should understand to improve, no to go all-in one dark shot. If you're racing with your bike and when you'll go to pass by a truck you see another truck coming on the other side, you'll either brake or get out of the road so you don't go againt the truck, you'll never think about accelerating to see if you can pass the truck without hitting the other! Life is one, game should also be taken as one (if you think you have more money at the cashier to spend on other games, you will always be playing like a loser).

You should see bad beats as "good" things.. Of course it makes you mad but you should think about why it happened: Your opponent played a bad game and got lucky! So the more bad beats you experience, the more bad moves your opponents have made.. And eventually you are getting paid by those bad moves.. just simetimes you are unlucky and thats a bad beat...
Thats the way I handle my badbeats.. Hope it helps somebody else aswell!

have a beer, cool down 5 minutes, and if u still want to play after, start with something lower than u usually do. Thats what i've started doing for some time now. sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. At least they're bankroll management friendly tactics. Steaming and calling everything with any cards just to prove u cannot be as lucky as the guy that just beat u is certainly wont help.

i cry, then go and find a weak guy in the yard an d kick his ass screaming "never again, you hear! if i see any ace again i will pull your head off and stick it in your ass" or something similar. usually this works, but my shrink told me i should cut down on excessive aggression, cause i will find it very hard to find friends in the future

Bad beats and any old beat is a bad thing....... but only if you allow it affect you and your play. Ome way to try and deal with it is just treat everyhand the same...win or lose and just get on with your game. its not easy but worth a try.
