  1. When I have a bad beat I think about all the times Ive done it to others and tell myself I just got one step closer to a big win. Also, twice a day every day I tell myself "nothing on this universe is gonna ruin my beautiful day today"

  2. I found the key to beating online poker… Sign up for a new account and after you start winning and cash out move to a different site, or start another new account. At this point the algorithm being skewed towards bad players, not allowing good players to realize their equity to keep them both coming back is the only logical explanation

  3. I've referred my friend to your teachings, this video specifically. I'm simply not getting through to him on how to be less reactive in these situations.

    I'm sure he will benefit from your explanation.

    Thanks again for the excellent content.



  4. Can somebody please rationalize for me, Bart's comment that PLO is more of a "gambling game" than Texas Hold'em? I would have thought, with 4 cards to evaluate, that there is a higher skill ceiling, there is a larger potential for a skill edge to show up in the overall results?

    My understanding was that professional poker players gravitate toward Texas Hold'em specifically because there are larger numbers of recreational players who are happy to gamble some money in a simpler game with only 2 cards and a lower skill ceiling.

    Can somebody please either confirm or refute this? @CrushlivePoker

  5. Another thing you can do is get up without hiding the tilt, go for a walk come back and still appear tilted without actually being so. Then just pick up aces and get called by 55s. Easy game.

  6. If I’m playing well and it’s a good game I just shrug it off and move on. Most if not all my big losses have been 50% bad plays and 50% bad beats in the same session. I’ve learned this the hard way and now I can’t remember a really bad day overall in the past year.

  7. Played professionally online for a few years, finished my studies, now I play on the side since maybe 3 or 4 years and still very profitable. Of course Ive been working a lot on my game as well. And tried to coach friends who wanted to win but basically always stuck staying losers on the micros.

    In my opinion, they all lacked logic, they all had severely entitlement issues which led to tilt, didnt have the balls to make correct plays because of money value and no one was ready to stick it out long term.

    I came to realize that poker is just not made for most people.

  8. Personally I only go tilt when my opponent had no business being in the pot in the first place. I never get mad aces versus kings when Kings win, however Ace's versus Pocket sevens, yeah I want to knock somebody's teeth out because what the hell were you thinking, especially when it's for a full stack or even deep stack. And then they tell you something stupid like " wow I thought you were bluffing " then why the hell did you go all in if I'm bluffing? Uhg
