      Poker sucks



      What helps you when your on tilt?

      What helps me is beer, comedy network, and watching people on high limit lose 20k..

      I have read some of those articles, they do help a little bit. But I dont agree with it telling me "there are no downswings, only poorly played hands". Yes sure sometimes its my fault, but sometimes its a bad beat as well.

      Today in a micro game I limped in UTG3 with A-Q. Mid positions folded, CO limped, Bu foled, sb called, BB checks. flop Q-3-3. Dont have to tell the rest, but if I raised pre flop I could of pushed out the 3's.

      Yeah it was my example how bad play can lose you the hand.

      That was to show the difference from a bad beat and a bad play.

      My A-Q was terrible but it was only a .40 cent lesson.

      The best thing is to stop playing completely. I just witnessed some guy lose a $70 stack in three hands after tilting at Plo25. He lost 30 of it to me so I don't feel bad for him, but the lesson is just stop and do something else.

      Do you have a girlfriend you can see? Maybe hobbies like kite flying or something?
