      Lol Undercover82, that's just about the best advice on tilting I ever heard! :D

      Can you please elaborate on the definition of embraceing it? Because I would really like to hear how you do it and what are the benefits of doing it. :tongue:

      Ηow you apprehend my teachings is entirely up to you :D
      Tilt is a natural aspect of poker. You cant , or you shouldnt act like a robot.
      Usually when i lose a hand that tilts me i throw a few curses that make the entire building shake and then i am able to play on my natural game.
      So i embrace the tilt , i am unloading my anger and i move on ~~

      27s is no bad beat (Except of his nie preflop play but since most of the money went in posflop I don't care much about it.)

      I have to admit that I wasn't sure who was aggressive preflop so yes it was KK. ;)

      And no this alone won't make me tilt. There were several hands before. :D
