this is part of poker, dealing with badbeats

Don't get me wrong I don't like the fact that I don't have constant information on how many chips everyone has, how much is the pot size or heck how many chips I have. And of course live poker is slower and more expensive. But in my opinion live poker gives better players a significantly higher edge. Its easier to remember faces than online nicknames(I know there are trackers but I don't play high enough stakes yet to justify the cost). You get enough time to go through everything in a big hand. When facing a big raise you don't just have to press a button you have to actually put the chips in the pot. I know one can just say call and it will be binding but there is no urgency to do that when playing live.
But the biggest thing I think is when you make mistakes. When I make mistakes is when I can tilt but in live poker you just get enough time to talk to yourself and get a hold of yourself before you end up doing something silly.
I know there are people who command very strong control over the mouse button but its not easy.
iīve been through of this that you mentioned before, you are playing four tournaments at the same time, then you tilt because two or three times in one minute you are badbeated or the river went against you, so letīs say you open with AK and the flop goes K-T-3, and the only opponent checks, you bet 1/3 your opponent pays. You expect him to have some project so you see the turn and try to fold your opponent betting the 3/4, your opponent pushes, what do you do? you pay, your opponent show a pockt 33 (you donīttime to recover, playing 4 windows) now you receive a pocket JJ, the same guy bets you 4bet he pays, flop 2-3-9, you feel you have the hand, so you push, you want to recover the chips from this lucky fish who won you with a set of 3, now is your opportunity, he pays, you panick, cards open, he shows A-4, you are ahead, turns gives you a set (J), you are allin, the vilain too, you are counting your chips, you doubled, you are jumping, saying things to your rival, and then th river goes 5, you are expecting to receive the chips, but then you realize he has a straight, you tilt, you start sreaming, yelling, crying, beating the table, but you still have three windows open but you think you are in a bad streak, you donīt deserve playing, you wait for the first pair or ace and thatīs it, you put all your chips in the center, now you are busted, not from one but for all your windows
if it happens to you, you have to learn to control yourself, otherwise you can not play poker, you have to accept the things you can not control
