      I would love to say no , but my nearly broken foot begs to differ :f_mad:
      I think this is a rather extreme and rare enough thing that it's okay to tilt after such a fail :f_biggrin:

      Even the Poker Mindset says that you can't always avoid tilting ...
      You either control your tilt and play on or quit playing ...

      You "quit" the tables so it's okay to tilt, no further harm done (poker wise harm at least :f_biggrin: )

      Get a mobile internet provider. If your normal ISP fails, for couple of dollars a month you get a pretty decent backup.

      that would be nice, this is the third world so I doubt $2/month and I didn't even find anything on google when I looked for it.

      I'll try, it's not FTP fault at all so I don't expect anything. It's +EV

      Once I punched my desk so hard that my computer bluescreened. My net came back but I was still rebooting. Needless to say I don't punch my desk any more. Gotta just chillllllllllll and hope your net comes back soon. Nothing more you can do.

      In September this happened to me. I disconnected for over 30 min with about 18 players left in a MTT, with a very healthy stack (like top 5 I think). When I finally reconnected there where 12 left and I only had enough chips to play one pot (FL Omaha 8 Or Better). I doubled up and got to the final table but busted short of the money (it was a Satellite, only 6 places paid I think).

      Honestly I don't think I really tilted that much... just very frustrated. I did get some chips back pretty soon though, that obviously helped. While I waited to get back online I just thought it's completely out of my control... very different to making a bad play or getting sucked out on.
