Shaking off the TILT +1

Hi everybody!

I decided to post this one related to TILT CONTROL, 'cause I guess this is one of the major problems on gambling, not only at P0KER, as well as in CASINOS or TRADING.
I've read much on it, but still, I'd like to read your thoughts on this one and what you guys tend to do to avoid it.

Alright, when I have some 2 frustrating bad beats, the 1st thing I do is open up youtube and listen to some music. I try not to open anymore SNG's or TOURNEY's and never, ever enter a CASH TABLE on a tilt situation.
If the bad beat streak persists, I have set a limit for my bank loss (read over it on TILT articles) which is 5% of my bank. If I hit that percentage... I'll just try to finish the tables I'm still on and have an hour break or so when finished those. Of course, if I get back my money by the end of those STT or MTT's, tilt's gone ... I guess. Even though, i will make that break, and try to figure out if I have done the right moves on those bad beats.

One other thing, I usually ask the poker rooms to block my chat, and disable tables chat as well, so I don't have to read all that crap some players say, and therefore, I will not answer them back and lose my concentration on the game.

Hope this helps you and sure will be glad to read from you guys on it.

This is an interesting topic H4Rm0Ny. Thanks for posting it.
The ultimate goal is to always be playing without any emotional distractions. Undoubtedly, controlling or managing tilt is one of the most difficult skills to master.

Ty for reply...

One other thing I forgot to mention on the post is that I mute all the annoying sounds of the tables, leaving only the "your turn" and "time warning" on. Having a poker session hearing all these annoying sounds constantly makes me go crazy...

PS: This is me when cannot hold it:

best strategy that works for me is this- when i want to shake off the tilt, i always turn on pornhub and watch babes shake off their boobs and booties. works like a miracle. i guess you have to find a strategy that works with you and stick to it, my strategy works brilliantly to my stick.

The best way to beat tilt..... other than following the extremely exceptional advice provided by Mr Pochui...... is not to get tilted! Do you get titled when the traffic lights turn red? If so, then poker probably isn't for you. Bad cards happen all the time, it's called probability and is part of poker.... not something extraneous that should affect your game.

Ha ha funny man pochui, nice advice to beat tilt, I often get nervous when i lose with good cards and my opponents have some low cards with no connection like 27 or 36 and they somehow get straight or flushes with 4 same color on board and their 2 is enough because I have only AA and none of this color Disagree I do best when I stop playing when i stars to ge nervous, go for a walk to buy beer, or watch tv.

Lmao Pochui knows how to handle his magic stick and also has nice Double D's Big Smile

When I know I'm tilting and not playing my A game I just stop playing or go way down in stakes and try to refocus. Or just take a break and do something else for a while. The thing with the human brain is rationality and emotion are controlled by the same parts of the brain so it's hard to have discipline when you're emoitonal. Blink

For tilt this is a serious problem ... sometimes, especially after I have a band of good game and suddenly I start playing the game after the game ... I know that I need to calm down and take a break, but often I can not stop And raise rates ... sometimes it helps but not always

I have tilt handling problems guys, and i am not afraid to admit it publicly guys Tongue the only good thing is that i play only with money i can afford to lose, and have small bankroll, when i lose it it is the end of my poker quests, i am angry and willing to play more, but i have zero money in my account, so i just turn off my pc and go to sleep.

I used to do that, and if we get lucky and works fine it's ok.
As a matter in fact, it worked so good to me that I went from $10 to $200 in one day.
But not every time it works, so... after loosing $150 in one day going bigger and bigger buy-in's tourneys with all the rebuy's and addon's... I don't do it anymore.
The most I do is a minimum double up buy-in, like for example if doing $1,00 tourney and I lose near prize-pool and I want my invest and some profit back I go for a $2,00 SNG. I only do this because I have a very nice percentage on SNG's winnings.

The biggest problem when you're on tilt is thinking "I have to get it back".
Nowadays I see it different.... You'll NEVER GET IT BACK... it's LOST.
You'll play again and win ANOTHER MONEY.... NEVER THE ONE YOU LOST.

This thought helped me a lot hope it helps you guys

Cheers Blink

I think you have a pretty good way of handling your tilt of course as others in this thread already mentioned the best way is to avoid tilting at all but sometimes that's just not possible since you have to be a soziopath in order to never be emotional to get rid of the anger and frustration you can do it like pochui and spent some time with your stick or like others take a walk personaly if i'm really tilted i take a break and do some things related to my name while listening to music after that i make myself a snack and go through my play in my head while eating when i made the right play i try to remember that it's just the way it is you win some you lose some and if i find i played bad i know that i have to work on my strategy and i have only myself to blame most of the time that helps

nice reply pothead2012

I used to tilt more than I do nowadays by following some rules of P0KER.
For example:
I play in 4 different rooms, and have different bank amounts in each... so I make an overall total bank, in which determines my allowable buy-ins.
Therefore there's this 1st rule I never break: I have to hold at least 100 minimum buy in's of the STT or MTT's I'm playing.
This means when I lose it won't make a big difference in my bank, therefore it's pretty unlikely I get on tilt.

Sometimes I tilt more in some situations like shoving QQ at 5 seats of FT and chip leader calling with 54 off and hitting a straight or 2 pairs ... lool

It's like I rather lose $10 to a good player who has a winning good hand and earned it than lose a penny to those donks who don't have a clue on what they are doing Big Smile

I know what you mean i also hate it when those guys suck out on me with hands they should'nt even be playing in the first place but it helps to remember that it's exactly those donkeys who'll build your Bankroll in the long Run by the way Nice Job sticking to a strict Bankroll management Dollar

I think, that if anyone can control the tilt factor they will become a very good poker player. I am always on tilt as i am a very bad loser and thats why i never make any money playing pokerand am always broke!!

Do not think you cannot change... try to manage your bank to decrease your loss...
I used o be on tilt every time too and also thought I would always suck on P0KER.
But when I say tilt, I mean BIG TILT... I even broke a laptop Angry (luckily was under insurance...)

Well anyway, what I started realizing is that I had to find a way to manage it...
That is why I have made this thread... there are many solutions to avoid tilt. The 1st thing you must learn is to realize when you are starting to become on a TILT situation, and from there try to build yourself a pattern... like making a pause on P0KER and go do something you really enjoy...

.. or you can also follow pochui's advice Big Smile

. . . The biggest problem when you're on tilt is thinking "I have to get it back". . .

Yeah, you are totally right about that, H4Rm0Ny. Most of the time gamblers (myself included) dig themselves into a deeper hole rather than fix a fundamental problem. It is crucial to find the best ways to tame the urge to chase losses.

Yes I too want it back when I lost my money, and do some crazy things then, play too expensive tournaments or go to play heads up or cash game just hopong to somehow get back what I lost, and don't even talk about casino, when i lose i try to double up to win back then again and sadly I most times just lise all, better play with constant stake

Tilt management is super important part of any person who's into anything related to gambling, or day trading, short term investing. I think it is almost 50/50 in terms of percentage to your overall performance with the other part being the strategy.
