I'm on a current run of not being able to leave the bad beat and suckout city and every time its hurts and tilts that little bit more! I know its percentages and they are inevitable but for me as a gambler they are hard to take! Recently in London I lost on the river after 11 hours of grinding and 10mins of day1 to go to a 9% outer. I'm not going to list all the bad beats recently but that one hurt mainly as I would have been near the chip lead and just all the effort, hassle, good plays and time I put into these trips to get nothing out. I've looked up many techniques in how to help deal with bad beats and I think they would work for a lot of people but not those who aren't professional players or have that gamble gene in them. So I just wanted to share what method of poker tilt therapy I used recently that helped somewhat. After receiving the river blow I got up said well done and good luck to the table, walked quickly but calmly past the slots and roulette and out the front door. Took a few breaths and walked back to the hotel slowly analysing my days play. I ordered some junk food (no alcohol) and had a movie ready. Before the movie I watched some funny youtube vids (links below) that I can't help but laugh to due to the reactions and laughing of the people filming. Anyway just thought I'd post it as nothing else has really ever worked for me and also to keep the clips of the vids in one place and maybe add to them.
One day I'll run good, well not even good just run with the percentages! I can't seem to win a flip these days and can't seem to even win any big hand where I'm massive favourite! I know everyone gets bad beats and I know everyone hates hearing about them but I really need to vent, so below is just a taste of how I'm running from last nights play. Some of these are made worse by the fact I think I played pretty well in slow playing big hands and making myself look weak to get them to put all their chips in! These are big mtts with huge prize money ?
