This is a discussion on Do you ever get mad with yourself because you made a bad play? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Sometimes I think to myself what an idiot why did I do that after doing something stupid and I am then out of the tournament.
the last live tourney i played i was very very mad with myself, i got all in with A5 and i lost. why i was mad was bcs i would normally folded that card but i was bb and i called a raise then i see on the flop AJ5 and we were heads up all in and the dude JJ, another bad beat...
I would be surprised if there is anyone out there who didn't get mad at themselves....for not stopping when on tilt; for mixing up your game, hitting a mediocre hand and not letting go on time....tilting even more afterwards....
We all make mistakes sometimes. Sometimes these errors are rewarded, they often end badly. Poker is a game with the unknown. You can not always make only the right decisions. Just put up with it and work on your game. Your feelings should not lead your game.
A lot of time and I feel so bad and ashamed on myself , sometimes I stop playing just to think about that wrong thing that I've done and analyze the play and try to find what was the best way to play but the most important about mistakes is that you don't have to repeat them again and again , learn from that mistake and go on , never look behind .
All the time,,,but i`m aggressive,and it`s gonna happen.I will look silly sometimes,but it`s a price i`m willing to pay to get better. I think if i`m not pushing the line,i`m not trying hard enough and i can`t live with that,,,,,,,
Certainly this happens. However, it is necessary to quickly cope with negative emotions. Erroneous actions need to be analyzed. And nerves and anger at yourself prevent you from doing the right work on the mistakes.
Seriously, I mean this is a serious question. Try asking if you never get mad at yourself when you make a bad call, that may generate some heartfelt answers. But with the question that you have asked it would nothing but a complete lie, from any player that says that they haven't gotten mad at themselves for making such a call.. I mean seriously.
Yes I have done stupid plays that make me shake my head. Like missing the flop and then betting the pot and they call,
missing the turn and still making a big bet and they call.
Now I miss the river and the only way to win is a pot size bet
hoping they will fold, no luck they win, should have folded right
from the start. I guess we get caught up in the moment!
Everybody does that.. nobody can't play perfect all the time and will do misstakes and when they realise that it was stupid it gets a little frustrating.
The important part is to get over it fast and improve so you will make misstakes less often.
I used to get mad at myself after getting elminated from a tournament because of bad decisions due to the fact that I was on 'tilt'. I would make a bad decision then more would follow then I would spiral down out of control and would not recognize it until I was out of the tournament. Now I practice patience and usually, not all the time but usually, I can recognize it and take a break and regain my wits. It's a work in progress but getting better.
Sometimes I do somthing because I think its the right move or I'm sure I have best hand then after I get beat wen I look back I realise the mistake. But sometimes u get them in good and loose that's just poker
I believe everyone has been mad at themselves many times. Just remember that ultimately, mistakes are only a bad thing if you don’t learn from them. Patience and growth are the key to improvement of your game.
Just yesterday I was upset at myself for making a mistake at a critical point in a single table tournament. I was not eliminated but I really had to tell myself to stay calm and play smart. Deep breath... still was able to cash
yes I am such moments tilt that then remember myself and already in the sweat throws from what you did the day before or a few hours, and when you cool down and look at your money, you realize that you're in deep ass and only you are to blame, and you start to think about thinking to sort out the situation .... a little back and again in tilt))) and so on the circular
Yes, sometimes I blamed myself for minor mistakes that did not lead me to the desired result, but I analyze my mistakes, and hope for the future I will not fall for the same rake. This is a game, excitement, without mistakes here in any way.
