This is a discussion on When the tilt comes within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hi guys.
Tell me, what method do you use when you see it is going to tilt? I stop for a while, take a break and
Tilt makes me reconsider my tactics of the game. I analyze what has changed in my game, which led to a decrease in the quality of the game. Tilt shows that either I am deviating from the plan or it should be reconsidered.
I try to avoid tild by somewhat "preventing" it.
What I mean by that is that, when I make a decision in poker, I'm aware that even if it's a good decision, Poker gods might not smile down at you for making the right decision, and things can go south anytime.
Some kind of "expect the best but prepare for the worst".
Hi! When there is a tilt, you need to immediately distract yourself to something else and relax before you start draining the entire bankroll. It is important to catch this moment. I don't always succeed. It is advisable to go somewhere out of the house, take a walk. Or chat with someone, even just on the phone. Relieve some tension. Movies and music also help sometimes.
Usually the tilt always goes with the downstreak. Therefore, it is better to take a break, because even the right moves can lead to defeats due to variance, which will only make it worse. You need to take this side of poker as a natural, otherwise you will never be able to enjoy the game.
