Bad beats and PMA!!!
Just like to share this with anyone who is being hit by bad beats and still not getting over them, or going on tilt on a regular basis.
This might help.
Up until recently I would go on major tilt, lose it major style, threaten to quit playing (on more than one occassion - I`m sure the regulars will remember my rants) and more
Now I am comming to terms with bad beats and starting to handle them well
Here is what helps me...I don`t think about a bad beat as `luck` any more. I think of `probabilities`
If you think about it, pre flop the best position you can be in is about 7/1 fav to win the pot. So if in that position someone sucks u out, I sit and think "the probability of that happening is 7/1, so I will probably win the next 6" It might sound silly, but its about a PMA (positive mental attitude - the glass is always 1/2 full)
And if I get 2 bad beats in a row, even better, because the probability of that happening again for a while is remote, 3 in a row, well, its like all my birthdays have come at once - I`m bound to go on a Jamie Gold run soon!!!
Just wanted to share that with you guys
P.S. It could be, of course, that I have had a mental breakdown
