I read in a book something really good on this subject.
People,especially ones dedicated on poker, who read,play,watch videos and learn go on tilt for several reasons. The best reason i heard from all was:
"The entitlement syndrome"...People think that just because they have KK or AA they HAVE and deserve to win everytime,they step into draws and flushes and all sorts of crap,then when monkeys who don't know what they are doing get their draw, shit hits the fan. ' i had the nuts,i am so much better' and all sorts of silly things. Poker isn't about massaging your ego it's about winning and winning cash.
Do you prefer to be the strong powerful man or to make a lot of money? In the long run you will profit off of those idiots. I have experienced it several numbers of times. I lost to a donkey,but then my mind goes to "i'm gonna wait for my chance and rip you to shreads" and in the majority of the cases i was able to. People winning huge bet off of me then i win it ALL + more back. People who had 3 times the stack and i slowplayed the nuts knowing he will dive and try to abuse me, then made him lost a huuuge chunck of that money. He called me names and everything and was cursing me, in the next 3 hands he was completely out.
At the same time, i couldn't come back a few times and that was still oky. I played my cards, lost with a pair in my hands vs a draw,but i did what i had to.
