this will get rid of your PHYSICAL tilt issues, i promise haha, im not saying this will make you play any better or stop you from playing bad hands, only from breaking stuff

Okay, so I was sitting in my French Revolution history class and the lecture was extra boring today....so I break out my laptop and decide to get some hands in...

I upload Full Tilt and first hand get dealt pocket kings, which gets busted by A7o when he flopped a 7 and rivered an A. When I went to punch something, as i normally do, I realized I better keep it cool and just sat there and continued playing.

Again, I was playing in class the next day, bad beat hits and boom, I just sit there and keep playing, no physical motion. haha I know this sounds so stupid but it actually works for me

I now no longer punch, kick , curse etc. after beats, I just forgot about them and continue playing.

Just thought this could help some beginners out there who want to quit breaking stuff, cursing etc...after bad beats:D

i dont know about you....but...when i take a bad beat...i cant just keep playing and ignore it....i insist on at least saying F*** you and moving on...or hitting my fist real fast...something....if i ignore it i play even worse and it effects my upcoming hands...but by releasing my negative energy in a negative manner...i become positive...and can proceed to the next hand

I have another way of dealing with tilt. God help the donk and his mother from happening what is at my mouth at that moments. After that i continue playing like nothing happened.

When I go through a bad beat I curse and punch my desk, then I move on. If I just lose a little I just ignore it and keep on playing. :D

Getting over a bad beat is different for everyone, but as long as you get over it fast, it's all good. Playing in class keeps me sane ha

Thanks for posting this because I need some help with tilt sometimes when I get upset about really bad beats like losing with pocket aces. I might use some of info and apply into my game and just move on from bad beats. Thank you.

if you are playing small stakes and get a bad beat
just forget it.
people at small stakes just will not fold so its going to happen often.
remember if you are playing correctly,you want the fish to call
and you will profit in the long run.
if some donk calls with crap and sucks out on you
just make a note on them and move on.
concentrate on playing solid poker and you will get
your money back plus.
good luck

I started just forgetting about it and accepting this will always just be a bad part of poker and try to remember the times where I've busted someone late on with middle pair and hit trips or so.

It's weird though as soon as I have kings or aces and up against queens or suited connectors I used to just say to myself "Ahh watch a Queen hit the river here or watch this gut shot hit on the river" and time after time it just did.

This might sound crazy to some of you but It's like that book, "The secret" it's called. It's basically a book based on laws of attraction. If you wish/long for something so hard and emotionally think it's going to happen, it will happen lol. So instead of saying "watch me get rivered here" I decided to say to myself "my Kings are going to hold up and hope to attract postive energy into hitting my trips"

Obviously there are still times my favourite hands get turned over, HOWEVER I've found they are coming out on top more now :p

Most will think I'm a nutjob but well, kinda works for me and my tilt isn't as bad and I just take a bad beat and move on!

I always tell myself they are gonna suckout that way I am ready for it. If they don't then it makes me twice as happy. Or sometimes I will close my eyes and not even watch. Then I look and see if my stack doubled or just auto reloaded and I don't have to see exactly how it happened. This has helped much because many of the times it's not getting sucked out on that hurts. It's how it happens. For some reason it bothers me less to see them hit their 2 outer on the turn than to hit runner runner for the straight.

When ever I have a bad beat I have to let the person who won know how bad/stupid they are. This eventually ends up with me being banned from fulltilt chat, but it's the only way I can move on. I'm going to end up being banned for a long time. So far I've had a 12 hour ban, but from what people tell me you can work your way up to a month or even a year.

Not the smartest thing you could do for sure. You need to suck it up and let them keep playing that way so you can make money off them in the future.
