      Question 1: What is your motivation for playing poker?

      I love games and I also like money, so for me poker is something that I enjoy.

      Question 2: What are your weaknesses when playing poker?

      Not value betting enough and ofcourse... tilt :)

      Question 3: What does it mean to play tight-aggressive?

      A good selection of starting hands and aggresion preflop and postflop. Paying attention to postions at the table
      Is a good style especially at uNL because players tend to play here to many hands, calling to much.

      Hello andreimgs,

      Welcome to the course!

      Easiest wait to fight against tilt is to set up stop-loss technique. Which means if you for example have lost more than 3BIs for a session then you just stop the session for some time. The BI amount is set up from your own wanting. Some may put it higher, some lower. And after the stop you can easily just spend some time with evaluating your play.

      Good luck in the Course. Earned your first points.
