The one thing that really chaps my ass, is someone who absolutely cannot play, plays like a maniac, and talks shiat while doing so. This loose-aggressive style--combined with little or no real poker knowledge--lends itself to short term swings in either direction that can sometimes be very large. When I'm on the losing end of a few of these pots, I sometimes feel myself forming a personal vandetta against that one person at the table. In this way, I have been tilted. I usually realize it and can recover rather quickly, but have sometimes let my absolute hatred for a donkey influence my decision to make bad calls or -EV plays. The only thing that makes me feel a little better in this situation is knowing that if I tighten up and can manage to stick to my game, I will be able to weather the swings from the maniac and bust him somewhere down the line.
This is very good, and is exactly how I feel about it. I think I'm impervious to tilt from a bad beat, because I don't really even recognize it as a bad beat. Maybe if there was a huge amount of money, like in the final stages of a wsop main event I would, but until I get there, I can honestly say that I always think, "what could I have done differently?".Bad beats usually don't tilt me very bad, because I usually have replayed the hand in my head a couple of times and will have either figured out how I screwed it up and could have played it differently, or how I played it to the best of my ability and shit sometimes happens in poker and that's just that. Most of the time what appears to be a horrible beat at the table, after close scrutiny, isn't nearly as bad as it seems.
I think it might help if you come to grips with the fact that a pair (even AA or KK) is not really a very high hand after all the cards are dealt. Right? It's the second to lowest group of hands.....usually i tilt most when my KK or AA or something gets crushed but 7s8s or 7h 3c (really happened)...those beats usually make me overplay my lower cards and giving up my higher cards because i've been discouraged so many times playing "big" hands and losing "big money"
