Keeping your composure at the table in most pros eyes is one of the most needed traits at the table.
If you cannot control yourself and your chips then there is really nothing else that can help you in poker.
I have seen players throw away THOUSANDS of dollars on terrible calls just because they were mad at previous hands.
This is a GAME we are playing folks, no matter if the chances of the guy beating you were 1 in 100,000 and he put a BAD beat on you, you must MOVE on. If you keep stuck on previous hands in poker, there really is no way to be successful, unless you plan on WINNING every hand you are in.
A tip that I tell all my students is to SIT down at the table or with the amount of money in your poker account that you can tell yourself “I can lose this.”
Now obviously you are not sitting down trying to lose the money, but at the same time you will not be emotionally hurt if you lose it.
Texas Hold’em, whether is being no limit cash games or multi table tournaments, it is a FUN game.
I do not RECOMMEND you play for REAL money until you read a guide or take a course on poker.
It is VERY easy to lose a lot of money if you do not sit down at the table with the right goal and mindset.
A good tip is when initially building your poker bankroll it is smart to play sit and go tournaments.
These tournaments are great at building your bankroll.
See you at the tables!
