      Sounds - and looks - like 'Jared Tendlar to me!

      It's good that you think you need to evaluate, rather than claim it's all rigged. I like you already.

      Take care,

      Dannyz0r, i get it you play MTTs or SNGs right ?

      I think the most important aspect of not going on tilt is understanding the variance in the game and most important of all is: having a decent bankroll.

      I cannot stress how important having a decent bankroll is. When I was playing cash on 20 buy-ins i used to tilt everytime. When i was playing sngs on 50 buy-ins, again, i would tilt every time. Now I play mttsns on at least 200 buy-ins.

      Try this:
      - if you are playing sngs, have 200 buy-ins in your account for the limit you are playing, believe me you will feel totally different when you have a bad beat. You just shrug it off, and register for the next sng
      - accept the fact that variance is a part of poker, and embrace it. If it weren't for variance, there would not be any fish

      The poker mindset is a must read imo. Really helpful, specially first 80 pages.
