Hi folks

It all started (as usual ) after a long series of cold cards . You try to tighten up , but every hand you play even if its AA,KK , QQ etc. everything gets beaten, nothing holds up . You start thinking if Poker is a game of pure luck or maybe its just a game u suck at .
You forget about all those victories you had and that you ve build up a pretty big bankroll with the same game you are playing right now ( wich means you cant do that bad at it since you are a winning hold em player in the longer run ... )

Suddenly you play longer sessions than usual just because u cant believe everything can go that wrong . Well , i lost about 100$ in a few hours playing 1/2 $ limit and after i failed there , i bought into some bigger journeys ( 20 $ ) just to get the money back quick , then my genius mind thought - ok im not good at ring games limit , im not good at tourneys - i have to play NL holdem ( another tilt idea ) - well after all my bankroll took a hit of over 200 $ in a very short time ( 5 hours maybe ) . And as usual , i didnt notice i was on tilt - i kept doing crazy things like playing bigger tourneys etc. but i had this " you cant win at this game "- feeling every time i sat down at a table ( wich i think is the biggest problem - i didnt believe in my/the game no more ) .
If i only was honest to myself i would have had to say to myself "Now is no good time to play for you - let poker be poker , do something else , just leave it as it is " - but as we all know its a very hard thing to do if you are that emotional involved .


2 days later i got my mind back , started to build up my bankroll again and now after another two days playing well ( as well as a Poo can do ) i got the 200 $ back , it was much work to get the money back but it was so easy to burn it before ( i really have to remember that !!! ) .

Well - thats the end of another Tilt story ( i think its good for me to wite it down tough )

Venting and writing thing down is what we are here for Poo. I wish I could get back the $265 I blew in a week. I thought I had it turned around but then the cards went cold again for me. I'm glad to hear of your turn around. It gives me a little hope of my own. By the way what is your native tongue?

I am form vienna/austria . The language spoken here is German .
i once read a tip for beiing behind in the money . So if u for example lost 200 $ ur mind tells you you are 200 $ behind , but you should tell yourself that you are even right now and then play again . So you start each session even . and then try to play a profitable session ( 1 hour or so ) .

Don,t know if i believe in tilt at this moment.Now i know this will go against the norm with many people on here but i seem to be able to get over bad beats and such very quickly.Thats because i have only been playing poker some 5 months but with some big wins in many hard tourny,s.

Maybe you are the one sucking out and putting bad beats on others then?
