PkrPwr: If You Get Way Down, Don’t Try to Catch Up

This might seem like odd advice, but trying too hard to catch up in poker often leads to disaster. It can result in overplaying and further exaggeration of your losses. You become like the basketball team that gets down 10 points and starts throwing up 3-pointers from the “hope zone,” turning the ball over, giving the other side more hoops and an ever-growing lead.

Take a step back and re-group.

If you are going to lose, you are going to lose. But don’t magnify the disaster. Go home a $150 loser, if you must. But don’t go home a $550 loser because you went crazy.

Avoid going on tilt. Resist the urge to recoup, pull even, make up lost ground, or you will wind up chasing rainbow pots, throwing good money after bad. ~ Doc Holliday
