Shouldn't affect a player at all. If it effects you maybe do more research about longterm results and all that stuff related. As long as you did the correct play, the result shouldn't matter to you, because the results will come from themself if you do the right play over and over again.

Totally agree with that statement...
...and if you fold a junk or weak hand that you normally wouldn't have played anyway,...and the hand would have been yours,....No big deal...! Just let it go and move on!
Like buddy says,...if you played it right and lost due to luck, or lack thereof,... shouldn't really matter...
REALLY what counts is playing GOOD poker,...and play consistently the same way,...and in the long term,...good results will come...!
Disclamer: UNLESS you are playing BrM tourneys on PokerStars...
I see there are even MORE idiot donks over on Party Poker....

Yea, but not as much when i first started playing poker. Not to mention that back then i was getting frustrated very easy. Now, i just say my own stuff over the air if noone listens and trying to forget the hand. Its easier in ring games where you can just quit the game though

Definitely not. It is not an actual factor at poker .We are not supposed to guess so I don really care if I fold 9 3 and board shows something like 9 9 9.Who cares?Just imagine how many times you have to play garbage hands in order to hit a monster. Have to admit that I do really care when I fold a hand which later would had win the pot. This happens a lot at multiway pots which are very common at Bankrollmob Donk Festivals.Even speculative hand like suited connectors which most of the times you “know” they eventually hit draws its hard to get rid of when u r deep and u want to save chips.
P.S. i do tilt when i sit down to write a post and no Mob points on the horizon

Posted by av1966: Does anyone tilt in mtts when they fold and then flop come and you could double-up?
I just wondered if this affects your a game by leaving you steaming over that double up chance lost
It's when reason must prevail and keep on playing by the book.Right?
Easier to say then to do some times emotional bets rational
no, once you decide to give up on your cards, you should forget about them. They are NOT your cards anymore. Just disable the dam thing in ps/ipoker whatever u are playing and you will get used to it
also, chasing that one miracle card, thats not what you should do, even if you get it that one time and feel so dam good about it, there are many more times where you wont actually hit it, and well, wont feel that good really
you are supposed to make money/chips on chasers, not become one yourself because 'sometimes' you hit your miracle river card.

I try not to tilt when this happens because it hasnt cost me any chips if i fold pre flop. Its when i get donk called and they hit runner runner to beat you that i really get steamed up and i take a five minute break before i play another hand

no it absolutely doesn't tilt me at all, there is a reason for this to be hones, considering that you are a forum reg i will share this secret with you (no one else except OP dare to read this)- whenever you fold a hand, cover your eyes or look away from monitor, come back only when the sound signals about action required on the next hand...and don't dare to use the hand replayer.
I do tilt, but not when I see that I could have hit quad deuces with my 72 off-suit. I don´t get angry if I get one bad beat, but three or more in a short time is too much even for me and I start to play bad.

i won't lie by saying it does not affect me. It does affect me for several seconds, then i take a deep breath and forget about it and focus on the next hand. Thinking about it is not a good thing as you will tilt more and play poorly and you will get knocked out. So take a breath and play your next hand with the best mindset.

I´m sure with you. Don´t worry if I fold possibly best hand pre-flop. But when I hit top fullhouse and someone else by the table quads two times in few minutes, that makes me angry
I find quite tilting situations when I play Rush poker and I see some donks open shoving 80BB stacks. Of course, everytime they do this I have a junk hand, but when I have aces, then suddenly I just collect the blinds.

"Donk" = short for donkey. It's become the most used phrase for someone who doesn't know what they're doing...
Tilting is when you make a play you KNOW you shouldn't make, just because you're upset from a previous hand.
An important thing to learn, and something that will see you right through your poker journey, is... Tilt doesn't really exist. There is only good or bad play. If you start looking for excuses for your own bad plays by justifying them as tilting, you are only conning yourself.

What do you mean tilt doesnt exist? Besides the bad beats that can tilt you at some point, the whole bad-good play point of view of yours doesnt seem to be correct. When you do for example a bad play and you know it you dont have any reactions at all? You dont mind and you are good with it? And dont tell me that someone can play good all thr time
