Seriously, It used to bother me but I have learnt now that bad beats happen - you cant avoid them. But if you are playing correctly, the odds are usually on your side and in the long run this counts for a lot. So you want them to call
. I relish them calling. Go ahread buddy, add to my account. However bankroll management is the key - play well
within yr bankroll, the loss a single buy in should hardly cause you to blink.
Also, although tight agressive is my modus operandi
I often mix it up depending on the circumstances. If the table is tight and timid its quite fun to loosen-up and be aggressive. If the whole table is crazy, I tend to play like a rock. I hardly think about it now - just comes naturally. Sticking always to the same gameplan is counter-productive as people will get a good read on you, and its boring to boot.
