      Whats some of the dumbest things you guys have done after or while on tilt?

      For example for me its trying to win back the money I lost on online roulette(the ones attached to the poker sites), doubling trebling and quadraupling my losses all in 2 minutes flat!

      Playing roulette on tilt is not a good idea. You have to detach your emotions completely and concentrate on your ABC game, making decisions that are profitable in the long term.

      Aside from chase losses, the dumb thing I do when I tilt hard for a while is delete all my hands from my HEM and start fresh. Yeah its nice to see a blank graph but I feel like a tool afterwards.

      deleting hands is stupid b/c u need to review hands, even when u tilt+u lose so much valuable info on opponents.
      I personally broke my dimmer switch (for my light) while on tilt. I also hit the wall and made a minor mark.

      I ran through the town center naked punching old ladies and kicking blind people, before stopping off in subway and going through the whole process of creating my very own personalised sub then blitzing through the door when they asked me for my £4.89, on the way out of the door i stole a school girls scarf and spat on her dog.

      yes it may seem low, but fuck me it felt great

      Continueing to play, you dont have to be on tilt to make this mistake though....Even if you have the smallest voice in the back of your head telling you to stop playing or not to play atall then you shouldn't.

      I put my whole roll of 100 dollars, on nl100, doubled up in 10 hands, then went to nl200, doubled up, then went to nl400, doubled up, then I went to nl600 doubled up, then I said to myself I am gonna keep on doing this untill I lose one stack then take money out, and I doubled up again. Then I got kk and lost on nl600 to 88 ai pre, then I took my money out and spent 750 pounds on a laptop around 1200 dollars.

      How stupid was I!

      BRM? If you can't stop playing when tilting go play NL2 and spew some money there instead of on nl200 :)

      worst poker tilt-deed: Swithing to +1 level PLOmaha (where I know close to just rules) to win money back faster. Actualy I was lucky and made it and even more lucky coz I realised what I have done.
