Now that poker is becoming more competitive it is important to look for every possible advantage and I believe taking control of the mental side of your game is an important part of this.
In poker circles you hear tilt frequently but what does it mean? Tilt is a word poker players use to describe the stress and psychological symptoms they feel when they lose emotional control in their game. The tilt can be caused by a number of different events, it could be a bad beat, just running bad or even just a single player in heads up who just seems to win no matter the cards your’re dealt.
The reason the tilt is so damaging is that once emotional control is lost your game and confidence suffers, this can then become a spiral where the more you tilt the more you lose which causes you to tilt even more and obviously lose even more. Once this cycle has started the player will worry about how long it will take them to regain control, and a once mentally strong player may become worried about even turning on his pc or starting a sessions due to the anxiety this creates.
So how can Hypnosis help?
Hypnosis is a world renowned tool for stress reduction and tilt for whatever reason it is caused is effectively a stress response. Whether driven by anger fear or even revenge.
The best way to describe hypnosis to someone who hasn’t used it previously is guided meditation, the Mp3 leads you through a series of relaxation exercises until your mind is in a hypnotic state and then suggestions are made to improve your game.
By listening to a hypnosis Mp3 prior to your session it is possible to clear the mind and create the perfect focused mindset in which to start your session. The relaxation removes the fears and anxieties of tilt and the suggestions encourage your mind to remain focused throughout the session, benefiting your ability to read opponents, have the patience to play effectively and a confident mindset to allow you to dominate the table.
When you use hypnosis as your pre-game warm up you are putting yourself in the best possible position to succeed.
