Don't panic after a bad beat

Sixth isn't much to brag about, but I'm pleased with how I played (click to enlarge).

We started with T5000 and in the first hour, I had A-A. The villain raised and I three-bet him. The flop was all low cards and I made a one-half pot CB and villain moved all in with J-J (I expected to see a set, but this is online poker, after all). The turn was fine, but the river was a jack -- he'd hit a two-outer leaving me with ~T1600.

Obviously, my stack was crippled and most players would have found a spot and shoved. Isn't that another form of tilt? I was patient and finally built my stack a little at a time, and got back in the hunt. It felt rewarding even though there wasn't much money involved.


  1. It is unseemly for a fine, southern gentlemen to disparage a modest profit. 148 runner would be willing to trade spots. ...just sayin' :)

  2. When your actions are a reward unto themselves, you've done a good thing!
