The thing that helped me most so far (I'm still a tilt monkey, too) was finding a label for my worst case of tilt.

I am an Injustice Tilter.

When I outplay someone and they win the pot, well... that just isn't fair. I then "take more chances" to allow variance to even things up. After all, if they can suck out, why not me? It's only fair...

I also found out it applies to me in real life, too. A perceived injustice to me tilts me. Thanks poker for that self-awareness. After 2+ years I am still, and always will be, an injustice tilter. My best countermeasure so far is to realize the early symptoms and take a break. Otherwise I tilt off 1/3 of my BR typically.

One other thing: who is your ideal opponent? Someone on tilt? Because they will donk off several buyins in short order. Don't be your ideal opponent.

SB: $53.66
BB: $42.25
UTG: $32.66

Preflop ($0.75) Hero is BN with K K
UTG raises to $1.00, MP raises to $3.00, CO folds, Hero raises to $9.50, 2 folds, UTG calls $8.50, MP folds
Flop ($22.75) 6 2 J
UTG checks, Hero bets $25.50, UTG calls $23.16 and is all in
UTG is 29/17/6 over 37 hands. I expect villains range to be Ax and high pocket pair heavy. No 5B so AA less likely.
So I bet pot for max fold equity vs Ax (I am happy to end hand here) and charge AJ, QQ and maybe a curious TT. I'd be shocked to run into two-pair, and 66, 22 seem unlikely. (Is anyone calling a 4B oop with small/mid pairs?) And of course JJ gets my stack.
River ($71.41) 6 2 J A 8
Final Pot UTG wins and shows three of a kind, Sixes.
UTG wins $66.57
Rake is $2.50

Comment | pppit commented on chronic turn issue

I have been wondering if my raise pre is too small and I am letting in speculative hands too cheaply. I don't fault the villain's play in this hand at all.

I think it's a good flop for TT, so I C-bet.
Turn ($1.30) 8 6 4 4
Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80
I don't expect many 4s in BB's range, so I C-bet turn.
Where I think I am:
River ($2.90) 8 6 4 4 Q
Hero checks, BB bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00
Worse hands unlikely to call, better won't fold, so my plan is check-call. Check-fold seems way too nitty.
However, should I have folded vs size of ~70% pot?
Am I better off betting ~1/2 pot and folding to raise? Would villain really bluff river vs my bet, bet, bet line?
Final Pot BB wins and shows three of a kind, Fours.
BB wins $6.59
Rake is $0.31

Preflop my plan was to limp/call OOP, limp/pot IP. I didn't want to play weakish aces OOP in a 3-bet pot. I now see no one had ever three bet :(. But when it was 5 way I
didn't want to pot into raiser because I thought my Ace outs may be in
the other hands that I expect to be a bit ace heavy. I didn't know what to do.


Was my plan too passive, should I have opened UTG?

Given the original limp, was the best play to fold to a raise an 3 callers? Pot? Or given almost 6:1, call and bet a flop I connect with?

Any thoughts on playing weakish aces OOP?

Just wow.

Is this is typical of what your winrate would be at this level? If not... what would you expect?(mine is -10 /100, that's why I'm here :)
