      Everyone knows that tilt is nr.1 bankroll's enemy, but sometimes tilting pays off. You hit higher stakes and bam! Your bankroll is 3x :D . Let's say today i had $23 in my account, lost it to $7 cause of couple bad beats, bad card running and in the end bad plays. When i registered to 4ppl $3.5 tournament, won it, when i had about 16, registered to a $15 4ppl tournament and also won it. Now i have $58. Tell your story of succesfull tilting :D

      big tilt and sick of the grind so i went to FTP to play rush poker with $10 and brought it up to $100 the first day, from there i played with a 2-buy-in bankroll management and brought it up to $2,000 within a week.

      I was running bad at the Holdem cash tables so I decided to try out 888 poker push-or-fold tables. Opened up four NL1k tables (50$ buy in). Lost $1200.

      Success: never playing those again

      I think this is fine referred to as tilt.

      Some years ago when i was new @ poker, and even not had a poker-tool/program, i deposited aprox 4-500$ on FT. Lost the first 3 deposit in a week.
      When i deposited 4. time, i put in 200$. Then i decided to be a gus hansen @ the micro stakes cashgames, thinking i could bluff my way up to the highstakes.

      After getting down to 162 $ i decided to take a break.

      When i came back i started playing @ betsafe, finishing 2/562, 1/1045, 1/325 and 2/xxx (cant remember). The day after i woke up decided to look @ my full tilt acc. Took 1 shot @ 0.01/0.02, lost after 20 hands or so. Then i thought what the hell, if i have to loose what i have on FT i could then do it quick.
      Registered 100$ 32,5k gtd tour. With 6 redpros registered.

      But in that tour i WAS gus hansen, from 15 min i was nr1 until i won the tour shipping 5990$.
      I remember @ finaltable, when i was close to loosing the 1. place, i had 224.000 chips, with number 2 sitting with 139.000, and he was starting to gain really fast, . But then i got AJ in UTG1, i limped, and nr 2 on the botton raised all in. i Thougt for a decade, COULD just not decide what the fuck i should do, but then i called in last second. And he showed K9s. The flop came 25K J A. By then i was sitting with 440.000 with just 6 left, and nr2 had 70.000.
      When we came to headsup, and he had gained a lot, me with around 420.000 and him about 340.000. The first hand i got headsup was AA, i minraise and he shove, showing 44, and my aces hold up.

      I also remember i throw 2 out with a large 4 bet with 27. Both calls, and flop came: 227 ;D

      That day was my best tilt i think ;D

      My br fits atm perfectly to micro's crushing @ ~37bb/100 after today =)

      My little goal is to make aprox. 500-800$ on micro before i move up. But im to be honest not sure if i will move up soon though, because if i can get to 45-60bb/100 then i will maybe double my goal to 1200-2000 before i move up in limits ;D

      And i make ~5 odds bet every day, so my actual poker br is hard to say what is.

      1) Over what sample size you have the mentioned winrate?
      2) What happened to the 5990$?

      1 Sample size i just over 1k hands, but because i only play 1-2 tables i get the sample pretty slow. I use all concentration on picking the right time to play, when most fishes is online. I have picked up a leak when i play 4+ tables that i dont use the player stats that much, which is actually a huge leak, and that is what i am working on. And completely avoiding tilt.

      2 After i won that tour, i lost 1k$ in 5 mins, playing 2 sup turbo sitngos. After that i cashed everything out, and paid insurance etc. I had to cashout, because i was tripping so insanely ;D
      That is btw another leak i have, tilting when winning. So im started to just cashout. Or well years back i did that.

      2 month ago i did the same thing, getting number 2 in a 600 tour, and then thought i was god, and just played 3 days after, but by then i wasnt finish with my winning-tilt. I played the next tour insanely well, till we where 18 left, then i started to tilt on behalf on my br so large in comparison to my deposit, thinking i could win every tour. And by that i broke my br rule, playing to expensive gtd tours, and woke up with suddenly then back to 50% br from deposit.
      Btw that was on partypoker.

      Yesterday I was very bored/tired/tilted so I opened up 7 sitngos and failed to cash in any so I was about 9 dollars down including rake.

      I played a daily 30 dollar freeroll and ended up shipping it for 9 dollars while playing like a maniac on tilt lol.

      Had no intent of playing poker, any hand I received worth raising or looking at a flop, I shipped it.
