I can distinguish a bad mood. When I do stop to count cards and make illogical moves.

My main error
1 - not the ability to finish the game in time (feel tired, you still continue to play).
2 - do not care (often distracted)
Maybe them and more on itself but looking from the side I see is these two.
The whole struggle with them is reduced to attempts to forcibly bring himself to move away from the computer. And in the second case - trying to force himself not to get distracted from the game. I leave the room where no one has, not turn on the TV, try not to answer the phone during the game.

The main thing - to be able to control the excitement. If you can - half the work done.

tilt is my biggest issue. and not negative tilt, but positive. I make a couple of hero calls and cooler someone and all of a sudden i think i am unbeatable then revert back to the mean. It's a leak because i end up making bad plays because i assume I always have the nuts while on a stretch of run-good.

Too I want winning every hand and this is probably a mistake, because the opponent also wants to win. I play a lot of hands, which means a lot of losses and psychologically me suddenly down

Youre not alone... I tend to tilt when i have played for a long time (hours). I know that is my weakness and try to think about it... maybe it will be better in time. But i wonder... is there anyone that have any advice how to overcome this problem?

Tilting from over-excitement can be just as detrimental as tilting from bad beats, Keep yourself in check when doing well and when doing poorly to maximise profits

I sometimes seek revenge when I am upset by a player and this tends to lead to poor choices by me :(
also I should follow my gut more and I would live to play more poker lol
