This is a discussion on Do you want to quit poker when you get frustrated? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; When they have a bad streak and feel frustration, do they think about quitting playing poker?
Or is leaving it not a possibility?
Hello, sooner or later you are going to have a bad streak, that is why it is important to take into account your bankroll, play within the limits so as not to lose all your money, remember that poker is relative. Greetings
This is the reason why having a strong bankroll management is important. You will inevitably have absurdly bad runs in your career, add an tilt to the equation and it becomes dangerous. Play responsibly
It depends on what you mean by losing everything, do you mean losing everything you had in chips in a game, losing your money on a poker platform or going bankrupt due to the vice of the game? Your question is very open and gives rise to a lot of hard. Still, I think that if you mean losing your assets, it is the immediate time to withdraw from any game. Regards.
In every game, I aim to win, whoever doesn't try doesn't win, but there are no invincibles in poker and no streaks affect my attitude towards poker. I try to play according to my abilities and feelings, and CC freerolls are a good opportunity not to worry about failure at all.

I think unless you are a professional gambler for living - you should not even have such question.
not a car, of course.
we are talking about a bankroll that sometimes slightly exceeds $15.
but for me, such a loss means that I have driven myself into poverty. there comes an absolute depression and the thought that poker is not for me. and then, after a while, I suddenly get to win some $0.75-$1 in the cardschat freerolls, and the epic of dreams of millions begins again.
an uninhabited island can solve such a problem, but I won't be able to reach such remote places...
I don’t think quitting is an option after only one bad streak. In my opinion all successful poker players have bad streaks and the way you deal with this is what will make a winner player or not. You need to keep studying, making the right plays and follow your bankroll management, one day the bad streak will end.
When you have a series of bad beats you have to sit and analyze your game and realize where you are wrong, if you consider that you still played well but the cards didn't help you, try to change your style of play a bit ...
Good morning everyone, I have been playing poker since 2018, until today bad bets leave me very frustrated, but today I know that it is part of the poker variance and if you keep playing and studying, your game will evolve and if it is already profitable, this it will only improve and if it is not yet, continue studying and practicing, and yes I already thought about stop playing poker, because I think that the results of the draws of the cards are programmed so that most of the time the player with the most chips wins, in my opinion .
It's all about finding balance. You want to keep this a game that you enjoy doing. There is always variance and down swings. Just have to find your inner peace and be able to walk away to build back up for the next one. If you have a bad game or get really unlucky, take a few days to relax and do other things to bring back the positive vibration.

I quit for a while
Stop playing for a day, then start grinding again
Just dont stay playing in a bad streak, it can only get worse
1) You keep playing right but losing money for bad luck
2) You get frustrated and start playing like an idiot
And the worse thing that can happen
3) You think: i'll raise the stakes to recover my losses and compromise a lot of your bankroll
Look at the charts and statistics of other players
Find your friends, favorite players, or top players in SharkScope or some other database and just look at their charts. I assure you, you will not find a single chart for a significant number of hands that would not suffer from a fall.
Failure is an integral part of poker, without it, poker is not poker.
There are very demotivating situations in which the bad phase prevails. It makes me want to never play poker again, but then we go back to optimism and resume games in the hope that everything will go well.
That is a normal reaction of almost everyone who plays poker ... it is clear that a bad streak frustrates and discourages even the strongest ... but in the end it is best to give yourself a couple of days to get rid of all that negative vibe ... and then return with all the positive energy ..!
