hi, not beleiving is a part of tilt, however not believing a bs player is ok, but not believing the none bs players is not good,

watch more on the table dynamics and whats happening, write it down on paper if you need to or make player notes and use color coding.

use green for multitablers

red for danger

orange for intermeadiate players

green for go, they are fish.

thats all you need
or pick your own colour scheme lol

Hi!

Without the chip stacks and previous actions in the hand, they may or may not be bad beats. They might be bad beats, they may also have been played incorrectly. Without all the necessary information, you can't tell.

The straight losing to a flush was just a bad move on my part, blinded by lucking out and getting a decent hand and not seeing the obvious. the 6 set was played out to the turn on a dry board with no face cards, I hit the set on the flop and made a medium bet, one player called and the other folded, then when nothing scary came up on the turn I moved all in figuring I must be far ahead and the other player was calling with top pair.

Can't remember much about the 7's I was probably pretty annoyed and could of likely of played that hand much better.

Next time i'll make sure to save the hand replay and post it here to see what I could of done better.

hi as Jw says you need to post these hands in hand analysis where they will give you a full low down on the hand.

It may not of been bad play by you, maybe was just bad luck.

Stick to your br management and shrug off the beats, dont let them bother you too much.

If you get frustrated take a break, give it 5 mins try again or just the next day.

Remember this, beats are always going to happen, theres nothing we can do about that, but the amount we lose can be limited by not been so over aggressive in pots.

Unless we have the nuts.

Over enthusiasm and over plays can be a dangerous combination.

gl hope you understand what im trying to say
