If it's tournament ofcourse you cannot do anything but to keep on playing and I don't mind telling the truth . When I play a cash game though and I have a bad beat (and in some other cases ) , I get irritated , annoyed , sometimes on tilt and lose/''burn'' with no reason some money with almost trash hands or I might stop playing at once and continue another time . I'm working on the tilt moments nowadays
You being a new member and your question leads me to believe you haven't played poker very long. After you been playing like a year, you should be used to bad beats of every kind you can think of, and you should be putting them behind you and go on with your game. If you are still having a serious problem with tilt after that first year, you will not go any where with your game, except deeper in the hole you are digging for yourself, instead of finding a way out. I had been playing for over 10 years when I come to CC and I had a truck load of tilt on my back, and I had no idea what to do, but I got serious about finding help and keep going. My friend, for my first 6 months here I worked mainly on how to deal with tilt. That being said, if you want things to get better, go to work and find a way. Ask 100 questions a week, use the advice to get from these experienced players. If I'm wrong say so. Stop playing 48 hours a day. When you get tired, hungry, depressed, mad, thinking of problems other than poker while playing, and the list goes on. When these guys say take a break, they don't mean 30 minutes. Take a day or more. If you don't I'm sorry to say that you are letting the game you love drag you down. and you are letting it happen without trying to do something to make it better. In other words, all of these things take away the focus that you can't do without while playing poker. And how do you plan to think when you been playing for 10 hours str8. That's my 2 cents
The answer is fold... honestly in freerolls i rarely listen to that advice. I usually totally tilt and shove to get out. I have a additude problem is my problem I usually just say screw it when my stack get really hurt cause i spend so long buiding it up. one bad hand demolishes it. Good luck buddy
bad beats are a part of poker,,,hopefullly you have a big enough stack to sustain the blow and continue on,,,,just laugh and move on cause there`s nothing you can do,,,except pick up and maybe get your $ back from the `donkey` who took it from you,,,lol
The most fascinating bad beat happens for me when my Full house turn into Under house. It really make me feel fool but It is the nature of poker and we must respect it. The practical approach should be "how can we minimize the number of bad beats and its effects on our game".
