There are plenty of articles and posts online about how to avoid tilt, this isn't one of them. Because truth be told, there is no avoiding tilt. When a fish calls a re-raise with 10 9-suited and beats your AK, keyboards are going to be smashed, bad words are going to be screamed and the chance of dying early from high blood pressure will rise ever so slightly.
It doesn't matter that you got it in good and made the right play. It doesn't matter that it's only a $5-dollar online tournament. It doesn't even matter that you were on the right end of a two-outer five hands ago. Because in that moment, that cruel, piercing moment of crippling injustice, you played well and got rewarded with absolutely nothing, while your foolish opponent made a terrible move and not only won the hand, but won a load of YOUR chips in the process. It hurts no more or no less each and every time.
So, tilt will happen. For the short-tempered among us it will happen a lot. For those calmer players it will...
I wanted to regularly host a poker game that had decent stakes, a comfortable setting, no long drive to the casino, and friends to laugh with as we toss cards and chips around. It didn’t take long for disappointment to set in after I sent out a notice that I was having a game, only to have five or six buddies interested, and sending out the text explaining it didn’t justify a game.
It took time, trial and error, frustration, hard work, patience, and determination but I built up a game that I’m proud of. I found a fantastic formula for a quality home game. These are the elements I’ve found to be the most important. The List
There is no point in trying to start a game without players to invite. This list should extend beyond a few poker buddies and friends that pretty quickly will get tired of donating their money and stop coming, save for the few die hard grinders. It’ll be necessary to search beyond the Facebook friend list...
It’s Sunday night, I'm ready to do battle again, to prove my wits and conquer all. The strange thing is that it has echoes of last Sunday, and the Sunday before that, and the Sunday before that…
I go through the pre-match routine, chanting my mantras, tight is right, be patient, know your range…platitudes that keep me focused on knowing the big one is simply a click away. Enter the deposit details and we are off!
As part of the weekly warm-up, I watch countless hours of online material, lambasting bad plays, seeing final tables and thinking, I am one click away. However, I have a dull voice in my head which forever asks, what does it take, really? As a day job, I'm stats and sport based so I know the odds of adversity for those who wish to be elite are high, not just high, that’s an understatement, but close to impossible. However, I am being convinced through all these mediums about riding the waves, being consistent and the poker gods will one day...
In early 2018 i did the most poker studying I have ever done of the game trying to decode it and it paid off.
I deposited $100 and started grinding 2nl cash eventually moving up to 5nl then 10nl.
I was also playing micro stake tournaments eventually moving up to low stake tournaments.
After a couple of months of hard work and strict bankroll management I had turned my $100 into $3000.
It was at this point I regret what I did and cashed out using the money to treat myself.
I never managed to get the bug back after that and I felt I lost the skill set that I had developed.
(side note bankroll management is essential)
On the 25th July 2019 I deposited $1000 and started grinding again playing 10nl.
I can't stress how much playing thousands of hands of cash will improve your tournament game so I started grinding 10nl and micro tournaments anywhere between $1.10 and $11, playing the higher buyins for my bankroll ($7.50-$11) occasionally...
I'm writing this thread because I'm on a journey of self improvement.
I'm hoping to get a promotion and in turn; a raise.
For a long time now, I have played poker and have been a (very) small winning player.
I play almost exclusively MTT's, a few SNG's here and there and have dabbled in cash games a little.
It's always been my dream, since I first heard of poker; to be a professional.
(As I'm sure a lot of you here, can probably relate to.)
My main problem in helping myself to get better at this game,
has been my lack of understanding when it comes to math and also some other stuff,
which I will come to at a later date, when I revisit this forum.
I came to a realisation a couple of months back, that I have been doing some things completely wrong
and perhaps more importantly; thinking in the wrong way about how I approach the game (and my life in general)
and as a result, the way I have chosen to learn the game.
Well no more. I have had enough of wasting my time, I can see...
