What they told me when I started playing poker was that "the only rival to win is always going to make oneself", the truth that at first only overestimated believing in my self-control that almost everyone exaggerated about the way they talked about "Tilt" and with the running of the hands played I noticed that they were right and that I had been wrong but very ugly not to take into account that the Tilt is something to always fight, that the easy solution to say that the other won because I was lucky it was just foolish to deny that my head made me play horribly.
the search for revenge against some player for having won or not having entered the pit when I had a decent hand was some of the points that I took to the Tilt. I have seen cases of people who only "revenge" winning a player lose boxes after boxes just to show that he is not playing. Stupid pride.
but back to the subject, I looked until I found a very good book that is the "mental game of poker", especially an exercise in which it consisted that when we put ourselves in tilt mode write on a sheet of paper as we felt that after several hours to read it again and we realize if we were the same or not. I must say that I did and the changes are good. improve my form of self-control which will benefit my bank.
I don't know if I actually go on tilt but I have been known to fume after a beat particularly to hands that people have no business in the hand with in the 1st place.. Depending on the extent of the beat or beats it can usually be offset with a drink or in extreme cases I take a walk..

Tilt is a problem for many players. I wish you the best of luck in dealing with it.

Maybe try to play more tables, idle hands and all. Or you could try playing over-rolled then the monetary swings seem smaller. Jared Tendler also does some excellent work dealing with tilt, so maybe read some of his stuff or watch one of his videos. If all else fails take a break from poker.

Of course I do not give bad life, nor does it take away the dream .. Obvious if it gives pain at the moment, but this is the game, there are happy moments and others not so much, thanks for participating in this thread.
