During my long sessions I listen to DJ mix sessions, trance and progressive house in these noise cancelling headphones of mine, usually keeps me at par on the back 9!

Wow sick! Thnaks for pointing this out Cowboy, I am very interested in eastern philosophy and I have not come across this before, I will check it out. I have often thought about how some Bhuddist/Taoist ideas would be very relevant to poker, hence my choice of avatar. Looking forward to checking this book out.

Swaxwell you should check out Tommy Angelo he looks at the thinking side of poker and works on tilt from a spirtual aspect. Really smart guy.

If you get tilted by a bad beat or suckout here's something I try to remember.

You as a player got your opponent to make that mistake, you made them play bad against you, that makes me smile and calms me down a bit.

That's exactly what you should be thinking, your opponent got away with it this time...this time is not always or for ever, your time will come if you keep making the right decisions. If I didn't truly beleive this, I'd quit.

In a perverse way of thinking you WANT bad beats, at least a few of them. For a beat to be a bad beat you must have gotten the money in when significantly ahead and your opponent made a mistake. These two things are things we definitely want to happen.

So remember that bad beats equals good decisions on your part.

What's harder for me to swallow are the "good beats" where I get it in with a good but second best hand. Those weeks where it seems every opponent is at the top of their range. Sometimes these were properly played hand but frequently I missed a tell tale sign of strength.
