Psychology

Poker Tilt

When we talk about "tilting" in poker we refer to the way in which a bad beat can affect the game of a player. If a player suffers a bad beat and changes the way in which they usually play, we say the player is "going on tilt".

In a few words, "tilting" describes how a player starts playing poorly at a poker table because he is frustrated.

Bad beats are not the only things in a poker game that may set a poker player on tilt. When you don't get good hands for a long period of time you can also feel irritated and play with any poor hand you receive.

Poker Downswings

All poker players with a medium level known that it is not possible to end every poker session with more money than you started with. In some sessions you'll lose more than you win and there is nothing or very little you can do to prevent this.

Although poker requires skills, the influence of luck in the result of each session is always going to be there. Regular poker players know that sometimes luck gets the better of you, ocassionally for long periods, and from time to time, it seems that the streak will never end.

How to Overcome Bad Beats

There is very little in poker that can throw you off of your game in such a dramatic way as a bad beat can. Dropping from the high of being all in on the flop with top set against two over cards, to the low of being outdrawn to a runner-runner flush is enough to make the biggest poker fan hate the game.

Despite this however, it is far more important than you think to deal with the frustration before playing your next hand.

Poker Table Image

When you are playing in a poker table, you should be aware of your own "table image" and the image of your opponents. When we talk about table image we refer to the way in which one player identifies the style of another player, which is based on the way in which they play poker.

Suppose that an opponent is not playing many hands and only enters pots when he has premium hands, you may see that player as very tight and, as a consequence, they'll have a tough table image.

Online Poker Tells

When it comes to online poker, there are less poker tells that will help you know if your opponent is bluffing, compared to live poker, particularly when you are playing online poker Texas Hold'em. This happens obviously because you can't physically see the player you are playing against.

However, this can be good for your game since you will be able to focus on tactics and improve your skills regarding different situations. On the other hand, there are some online poker tells that can let you find out how strong your opponent's hand is.
