Getting a bad beat is definitely a part of growing up in poker. No matter how good you are in the game or no matter how you have done everything perfectly, bad beat is inevitable. The problem lies on the emotion involved after walking with a bad beat as with most players could not handle loosing. Some players will keep pouring more money just to get even. Most of us are guilty being pissed of being a donkey.
Knowing that, what do you have to do when you have a bad beat?
Some suggestions to get over a bad beat are as follows:
Have a puff of your favorite cigarette or your vape, but make sure to step out of the table.
You can order food or step into the restaurant near your poker location. Some players actually go as far as a kilometer to forget the bad beat.
Watch a movie
You could spend time watching movies to get the bad mood out of your system and even chat with your friends.
Here are some of the funniest stories about bad beats:
- There is this player who always gets a bad beat from a certain dealer. No matter how good his hand is, he gets a bad beat constantly. Now, that player and that dealer have two kids. Well, guess he never got a bad beat from that dealer ever.
- Another incident was about a Chinese player who performed a ceremony when the dealer sat down.
Most of the time, some players avoid a certain dealer but this is what we do. Personally, I have always suspected that the shuffler machine in a poker room that is hidden from site is actually a man shuffling and arranging the cards below the table. I have tried to plead with it but to no avail.
Whatever your choice is, getting affected emotionally is definitely bad on the table. We advise players to step out of the table and relax.
So, what do you do when you suffer from a bad beat?
