I feel joy and sports interest. I feel positive emotions because I know that the game will bring me pleasure :)
Poker has long been a pastime for me, which helps me stabilize my psycho-emotional state.

When I play I feel joy and fun. I try to keep my emotions to myself to avoid unnecessary bets and I try to play very correctly

A lot depends on the significance of the tournament, of course. But I don't feel angry when I get eliminated, because I realize that if I didn't win today, I will win tomorrow. You have to be optimistic in poker and luck will smile on you! ;)

I want to repeat myself: I always want more, more than is normal 😃. That's how I set myself up, now I play cash and a few sit&go that oscillate menacingly, but I know what I want from poker.

You described a very interesting experience. I agree with you, negative emotions are also present in poker. This happens to me most often when I play for real money, and I have a bad beat 4-5 times in a row. In this case, negative emotions overwhelm me, and I begin to tilt. I have a desire to win at least one good hand, I start to enter the game on everything. At such moments, the main thing is to learn to stop in time and not lose your entire bankroll. You need to stop playing for a while, calm down your negative emotions and feelings, draw conclusions about what happened and only then continue playing. This is very difficult to do, I know this from myself, but this can and should be dealt with, there are no other options).

I feel excited. Also the feelings of frustration and joy is very familiar when I sit at a table :)

When I play Poker, I feel a mix of excitement, anticipation, and a bit of nervousness. There's a rush that comes with each hand, especially during critical moments like making big bets or waiting to see the community cards. I also enjoy the strategic aspect of the game, trying to read my opponents and make the best decisions possible based on the information available. Overall, it's a thrilling experience that keeps me engaged and on my toes throughout the game.

I feel complete concentration especially after the flop and great euphoria when I win a difficult hand or win a championship

what I feel most are frustrations, but I love the deck, so I move on.
It's difficult to live with this, but it would be good to know what really frustrates you the most and act directly on the problem, try to free yourself, we all need to do everything possible and impossible to seek good energy and feelings, don't try to normalize the situation and try to live with it, you can!

At the beginning I feel confident, depending on how the tournament goes I start to get impatient, if I get a bad beat I get tense, but from then on I start to play very safe...
It's good self-control!

when I'm playing poker I feel like a calm and busy poker player and get a good impression I like competitions and I love competing with people and getting good prizes after the competition, although poker doesn't always make it first I always love this game

Yes, even for your evolution as a human being in itself. Knowing yourself very well is the first step, then, acting on all the points that lead you to be a "bad person" because only in this way will you achieve any progress, and as I said, whether you like it or not, you will need to have this attitude towards yourself. , since only you in the entire universe can change yourself.

Try to find out what really frustrates you, and work on the cause, don't normalize a bad feeling!

Lately, when I play poker, I hardly feel anything, except when I win or lose a big pot, I get good or bad emotions. But I don't have the same excitement as I used to, it's just a regular work routine

Understandably, I've had numerous wins throughout my poker career, but I've also encountered many setbacks. I've busted my bankroll multiple times, usually due to the desire to move up in stakes rather than staying within my comfort zone. It's a common occurrence and a part of the game. After much reflection, I've come to realize that only time can provide the necessary self-control and experience.

I've also experienced significant losses in online casinos. Currently, I feel like I'm at a point of maturity where I'm striving to manage my bankroll as effectively as possible. However, it's likely that I'll bust it again because I still lack the sufficient experience and self-control. Nevertheless, I understand that with time, I'll achieve it. Best of luck on your journey as well!

It is a definite rush of course especially if your at final table and about to win a 4hr tourny. The adrenaline hands down would be the feeling I would capture the most. You can win with aces or you can lose with aces, depends on your poker fate that day. Good luck my friend 🍀
