How do you...?
How do you keep your emotions in check when playing poker?
Simple enough question, but, I need tricks, ideas, exercises, or something that works. When I am in a game for a couple hours, especially tourneys, I get a combination of excited and fretful. My heart begins to pound, and, it builds on itself. I want to win, and worry about imploding.
Does control just come with practice and repition in that situation? Or do you always get elevated mixed emotions towards the end?
