The most important thing for a poker player who wants to become a professional poker player is self Ė control. But, there are many of good players that failed to do so even if the theory from the book is well known by them. I believe that the need for revenge and to be able to take back the money that are yours is a factor who increase the hate feeling and indirectly the tilt mode.

When players are in tilt they tent to be very aggressive with poor cards and some times they just not realize this factor. Itís like the stock market, when your stockís decrease and you expect them to double in a very short time but 90 % of the time it doesnít. For me is very hard, even if Iím self aware of my poor poker decisions after a number of two or higher bad beatís on ring tables. I know the theory, Iím aware of the fact that if Iím not gone stop playing I will lose all my bankroll, but sometimes I have trouble to just quit the game for a while.

Why? Well just because I need to demonstrate myself that my poker skills are better then my opponent, because I want to recover my money and show him that in the long run Iím a good poker player with the knowledge and patience to be able to win at the end. A good poker player after a major bad beat leaveís the table and take a short brake in order to put his thoughts back in line. Even if I know that Iím facing a fish is a little bit tricky to push the poker hands to extreme (loose aggressive), because I might get caught bluffing even if my opponent has nothing but a king high card and because of his inexperienced play that forced him to pay all my raises blindly.

The bankroll is important, Iím like a father to my money and because of that I need to protect them. How do I protect them? Itís simple: when I loose I just take a break (even a day or two), and if I win I try to play as much as I can keep my concentration awake.
