Which puts you more on tilt?
      #406539 - 11/13/03 11:40 PM

Or for those of you that don't go on tilt, which gets more under your skin? Getting sucked out on for multiple hands in a row, or missing huge draws for the same number of hands in a row? Or something else? Personally I think it's not making draws... people sucking out on me I can handle, since I know everyone gets lucky now and again.... but when I miss draw after draw I can't help but think that the world has turned against me!

i dont go on tilt too often from things like cold cards or missed draws. i occasionaly go on tilt from other peoples terrible plays and sucking out. the bulk percentage of my tilt is from making mistakes that i KNOW i shouldnt have made.

I never mind when my opponents call down and beat me. The ones that irritate me are where they give an absurd amount of action with a ridiculous hand, then win. Like I have aces and the flop is Ks qs 6d and we cap it. Then the turn is the As and I get checkraised. Then the river is the 2s and he wins with pocket sevens with the seven of spades.

Sooga,

Aren't most of the players who never go on tilt also in the pot with a lot less draws then other players? I experience people sucking out on me a lot more than I experience missed draws. I think any winning player would have to say this.

Now, that doesn't mean missing draws isn't more frustrating, but certainly the infrequency of being in on a draw makes it less so.

I play so few hands, I'm excited to just throw chips in the pot. I don't care who wins.

-Mike

Actually on the contrary, if you fold, fold, fold, then you pick up QKs and the flop comes JTsX, and you end up with king high, then you fold some more, pick up 89s and the flop comes 67sX and you end up with 9 high, I get even more tilted, since I don't play that many hands and now that I have one, I can't get anything to come out of it.

Plus when you people suck out on you, you realize that they're not gonna get there 95% of the time, so that's comforting. But when I miss multiple draws where I'm about even money to make at least top pair, I get even more frustrated.

Having a slow session bores me more than it bugs me. While it's frustrating to catch 1 playable hand an hour and get a belly flop to go with it, it's part of the game.

Getting drawn out by a player with a reasonably legitimate hand doesn't bother me too much, again it's part of the game.

Getting drawn out by a fish with crap (J2 off?) bothers me a bit. (Especially when there were pre-flop raises making fishing expeditions REALLY bad choices.)

Watching someone else get drawn out by a fish with crap also bothers me.

(I have this pet peeve about "fairness" and it makes me nuts when I see someone doing something "right" and penalized for it, whether it's me or someone else.)

Getting consistently drawn out by a fish (or school of fish)with crap for several consecutive sessions makes be absolutely ballistic!

Luckily playing on-line allows me to shout at the walls, sit out from the table and blow off some steam before I look at anymore hands, so that hopefully the tilt factor doesn't affect my play and no-one in the game can see it!

The thing seems to be really setting me off lately is when I sit down at a table and then the table almost immediately breaks. I guess it's a side effect of playing online with 5000 players ready to fill other tables, but what the hell... people seem to abandon ship as soon as one person goes away or leave the table.

I second that one. When we cap the flop, me with my flopped set, and him with his inside straight draw. Sheesh, talk about disguising your hand, when he hit his gutshot I paid him off all the way. You wonder what he was even doing in the hand, calling 3 bets cold preflop with J8. Well it was Party 2/4...

the thing that gets me most (i hardly tilt anymore) is:

i get substandard cards for hours while the table are all going nuts with trash and playing badly. during the same time every time i play i end up being behind (out flopped or just behind like AK vs JJ).

I get most bothered by fish who are Know-It-Alls at the table, especially when they are totally clueless. There's always this burning desire for me to tell them off when they say something wrong, though I rarely ever do.

For example: "How can you make that call, I raised it PF and on the flop, don't you think I had a good hand?" I'd just want to say, "no sir, you're raising and overvalueing all of your hands it really was a quite easy call."
