I used to think I had a pretty good handle on poker tilt. It was a very rare session where I’d make a bad play because I was steaming about something. Now a days though, with how much tougher the games have gotten, I’ve found myself making ridiculous plays I don’t think I ever would have in the past. All simply because I was running bad, or was getting raised off some marginal hands, and was chasing my session trying to make something happen, and instead just made it worse.
Poker tilt is the game inside the game of poker. Everyone in poker tilts to one degree or another. Even if it’s subtle tilt, even the most stoic players are susceptible. It’s something we can all improve at. With this in mind I asked someone who is quickly becoming an expert in this field to make a video about how to handle tilt. So I asked Jared Tendler, author of the Mental Game Of Poker Vol. I & II if he’d do a video for our poker software Leak Buster and he agreed. I think this information is so important and vital to growing as a person and a player that I thought I’d share it here. Let me know what you think, and if you like it, share it with some friends too.
