      Well not really a pro but I've made the majority of my money on tilt. Whenever I dip and lose for instance 25$ in 0.10/0.25 on a bad beat I play on tilt and instead move up to the 0.25/ 0.50 limits (not a good idea, yeah i know) I play better and make 3x the money i lost.

      So my question to players is, can a player actually play better while on tilt or does this just seem like ive lucked out a few times? It has worked for me so far.

      no playing on tilt goes against the poker mindset and is 100% -EV in the long run. You are just getting lucky. So what you lose xx$ You want to tilt and then blow your BR.

      Well, if tilting somehow makes you concentrate more on your opponents and your game because you're so pissed that you're losing i guess it's a good thing. But it isn't really tilt, is it? Tilt is when you're not playing at your best, which in your case would then be before you get the bad beat.

      and usually involves overplaying your cards and making subpar shoves

      Well I seem to play really aggressive and work the pot up to a decent size to make a large bet (usually on a bluff) and easily steal the pot. Maybe when I'm on tilt I make moves I usually would not have the balls to do lmfao

      Then you should keep the aggressive/bluff parts in your regular game and remove the tilt part from your game.

      playing on tilt is by definition all about playing irrationally. playing irrationally is what fish do.

      tilt => fish => dead money. :D
