Some hands really do not get stressed out when you're winning and the river shows the opponent's only out, but it's game, whatever the variance, try not to get attached to the cards, and understand what happens. breathe in and start a new game hoping for it to be different.

We have all experienced this. You spend hours carefully building your stack and then its suddenly gone in two or three hands. The only thing you can do is accept that this is part of the game. There is very high variance in poker and you will get bad beat.
All you can do is practice good bankroll management and play a solid strategy, stay patient and focused, and concentrate on what's going on in the game. Make the best decisions you can in the moment and don't think about results. The rest is out of your control so no point stressing about it.
In MTTs, for example, you will NOT cash most of the time (only around 10%) let alone make the top 3 places (only around 2%). Keep this in mind and you won't feel so bad.

How i handle the stress
Generally speaking, poker can be pretty stressful especially when you're on a table that has aggressive players on it. They keep on putting pressure on you to call their large bets. Usually when this is the case, I try to counter their aggression by making hands on the flop and starting the hand with a good holding. A good win feels good and helps alleviate some of the stress.With that said, don't let a win let you put your guard down. Poker is a marathon not a sprint. Cheers Mate!!
