Good luck, and may you finally be at peace with yourself with your new game plan.

Tilting sucks big time, have done it many times and what works for me is to just walk away from our desk and do something that I know will put a smile on my face and happier thoughts in my mind.

Constantly bluffing and getting caught doing it is only good for one person...the player that now has your chips and is still in the game and you are left holding your....., they don't care that you just swore at your screen or yelled at your girlfriend or whatever you do when you tilt....learning to control it when it happens is a hard thing to do especially if you are on a losing streak combined with being tired.

Patience is key, always is, always will be.

you should NEVER bluff at the micros, the other players aren't thinking and call everything down...
