Well it had to happen. I did manage to go through a month and not go on tilt online.
Till this happened.
I was cruising along in the £5/£10 NL Holdem on Betfair when the following happened.
Sitting with AA in the big blind I was pleased when my foe raised it to £50 to play... I called and just the two of us saw a flop of AJT rainbow. I check and he bets out £500. A massive overbet. It’s really an easy re-raise though because there is no way I thought this player would bet so much with the nuts and even if he does have QK I still have 35% of winning this hand. I reraise him his remaining £200 and he types "oops" in the chatbox and then calls. He turns over AK. Q on the turn and no pair up and he wins a pot of £1500.
Later I did the following analysis of hand that he could have had.
Worst case scenario
AA v QK = 35% chance of winning
Other more likely scenarios
AA v any two pair = 97%
AA v trip J or T = 93%
Gutshot draw = 88%
So I lost to a 12% chance. I think I can cope with bad beats now but not horrific 12% ones in £1500 pots.
So yes I went on tilt.... at one point I was down £2000. Thank god for Omaha and heads up......
At least when I am playing ultra aggressively in Omaha I still only commit my entire stack when I have the right pot odds unlike in NL Holdem when my play is generally very bad if I am tilting.
I also played heads up £2/£5 NL Holdem after I gave up on the ring game..... I actually thought I played very well and turned my £300 on there into £700.
Overall I ended up £500 down if I include a small win on VC but it could have been much worse.
