re: Poker & Random tidbits
Here's one I've believed has definitely helped me when I've felt myself going on tilt:
If you feel yourself going on tilt and you can't leave(like if you're in an important tournement), then become a "machine." In other words, pretend you're a robot with no emotion that just plays the ODDS
. Another thing that always helped me was a funny little philosophy: "Folding hands helps take you out of tilt." I know this might sound strange to some, but tilt makes you play too many hands, so this helps cure that. It makes your mind feel clearer and then you can focus more.
sorry that was a little long.
