How do you deal with tilt? Are you taking a vacation from poker after a week of failures?

For me, tilt went away as confidence came. If you're confident that you made the right decision the outcome doesn't hit as hard. Combined with the realisation that on average you'll run AA over KK, flush over flush etc. just as much as everyone else I'm pretty much tilt proof.

Bonus tip. Play within your bankroll so swings don't hit you that hard.

I am a patient and disciplined player, so I never feel tilt. I just don't have that problem. My bankroll management keeps my nerves and allows me to keep my emotions under control.

Sometimes I have a feeling that to many unbelievable loses happening to me, like losing all-in with 99,5% winning probability. Situations that looks like someone control it and make me lose, that time I am nervous. Then I read a forum like this and people are saying it is happening all the time, its a poker and math, that take me back to calm mood. Nothing make me more angry than that, someone fake the game, scammers and cheaters. As far as everybody play obeying the rules, i have no problem with how people play and any anger that comes is within myself, no outside. When I realize it helps me to take over control.

After the last loss and an offensive departure with aces on bubble, I took a break for a week) Yesterday I went to play and immediately the final table in a small tournament, but it's still nice) Yes, anger in poker will definitely not help)

If I start to feel angry and irritated (tilt), I stop for the day, but I dont need an extended break to calm myself down. A good nights sleep is usually enough.

Vacation? Never.

As my experience shows, negative emotions only lead to losses and disappointments. Therefore, in a situation where you cannot control your emotions it is best to just take a break.

So what. With poker winnings you'd pretty much buy just about anything :cool:
Btw you can still turn to "Rage Monster" while NOT going to be as destructive like they are at Dude Perfect lol ...

I recommend that you stay away from poker all day long.

Let's refresh your head by doing gymnastics.

2-3 days break helps. It is good enough to get rid of negative thoughts of bad beats, tilt issues.

I mostly do it after downswing or 20% or more of my bankroll.

A week of failures is a very long time. I usually have a series of bad days and good ones. It is important to pay attention to your mistakes, watch hand replays and learn lessons. So the rest will be useful.
