      Whoa, grats on winning the daily dollar! That's around $300 if I'm not mistaken. I hope to do that someday (soon, hopefully) too. :f_biggrin:

      Keep doing a good job increasing your BR, I guess. :f_grin:
      And work on your gamei.

      Thanks! Ive been playing a lot of poker since i got the free starting capital.
      Im from a very warm glasgow haha.

      Iv'e just lost some of my winnings today because i am playing at stakes that are too high. Down to around $340 although i dont feel like i am playing any worse. I know this is tilting me so i am looking for advice on what other people do to stop tilting?

      Hi stompy91!

      First of all: Welcome to the English community!!

      Well done on winning the daily $!! Must be very nice to get a boost like that for your BR!

      If I tilt I just stop playing. I find it very easy to stop playing once I feel I'm tilting! *Not like most people*
      The best way to protect your roll from tilt is set up a stop-loss limit. This means that you have to stop playing after you loose xBI's. Most people use 3BI's.
      We also have an article about the stop-loss limits: Article stop-loss

      I also advice you to read some more of our psychology articles! These days psychology is a huge thing in poker and it won't only help you with poker, but also during your everyday life.

      If you have any further questions, don't be afraid to ask!
