Bad beats happen. Live for some reason i hide it well. Online i just seem to unravel fast. Not going to go into detail because its not a bad beat thread. But i'm killing the 5000 free buy free . Two hours in i'm 4th in chips. Down to about 500 something and it hits. The great bad beat happens. I loose 1/3 of my chips but still ahead of the game. You want them chips back. You stew a bit and bam you get pocket kings. Same guy sucks out and takes another third. What the hell. Next hand you play you missed your 16 outs by river. You dont see it............Your on tilt. Probably since the first beat but your lost in how the fu_k did this happen.
Then you play a marginal hand ace , 10 suited. Get the same azz munch who took 2/3 of your chips calling the stupid 6bb bet. Flop comes, he checks so i check. My mind is like what....Turn comes out another king and he checks. I check and now my brain is complete crap. He checks the river so i'm think like a true donk i'm jamming no way three checks and i really need that 7 grand in chips so i did it. This azz hole runs both his time clocks down and calls with his full house. Thats how a tilted mind finishes. I bluffed the nuts.
Yes I know its a free roll. Just sucks. If i would of took a quick break and walked away i would still be in the game. Live thats when i take my piss break if i need it or not.Its a cash game so i can afford a stroll. Let the game go on.
Tilt can be a hard one to beat at times especially online for me. When i have its rigged in back of my head it doesnt matter how far im ahead pre or after flop its gonna hit and it does but when im clear headed it doesnt work same way LOL
In 5k the other day i was in top 10(80k in chips) with 300 left 150 get paid. Granted i wasnt spewing chips with worst hand pre or after flop but in 5 hands that i got into which was 1 trip around table i was out. After the first one, i was calling every one after that out watch him hit this sure nuff. I dont remember hands now but i thought same thing you did WTF is going on. very mad at myself even tho i was ahead each hand
