I have never done that and never will, what i have done multiple times was to uninstall poker for some days and download it back when i feel better. If poker can cause that to you its high time you quit it. Just imagine destroying your phone or computer for losing, an item which might be worth more than the buy in of the game you are playing, thats will be insane.

It made me laugh when I once deleted the game, there was the inscription “Until we meet again” (I then thought how do they know this?)

Great question! Yes, I have broken my phone and a tablet…. I should send the bill to the poker site! For rewarding donkeys and suck outs lol

I don't understand... why would you break your computer after winning the hand :unsure:

There's only one definition of maturity, imo. Breaking components due to bad-beats or, ahem, bad-play is absurd. That would be like going to a cardroom/casino and tearing up a deck because you lost to a sick river. Can anyone say, "Can the real dim-baby please stand up, please stand up?!"
If you're tearing up devices cause you wanna throw a fit along w/your laptop or phone, then poker might not be for you. Stick w/something a bit more suited to your speed like "cornholing" or seek-a-word. Yeah, I said that. Grow up, people, and happy holidays. :ROFLMAO:

A lot of nerves are lost at the poker tables and casino games, but if you also break things, is this game definitely worth all the negativity?

In such cases I can be very angry, but never cross my mind to break something.

While there are times where I would have liked to smash my phone, I just don't understand the impulsivelness of this action and how someone can actually do this. How can you have zero self control?

Hello.
I never did something like this. I think it would be too strange for me.

In my case, I could never get angry enough to do that; I think that surpasses my anger limit. If someone does, maybe they should try some calmness exercises to control that rage.

Never, a game is a game and you have to have emotional control... if you can't, never play, practice something else or see a psychologist.

I never reached that extreme. Sometimes I do get frustrated or upset about making silly mistakes, but never more than that. The times I got too angry (in situations unrelated to poker), at least I aimed at the mattress or the punching bag.
There are people who need to physically vent, but I usually settle for complaining.
