No matter how good of a poker player you may be, you will often find yourself broke if you can't control your tilt.  You can now learn to control it with a helpful video by Jared Tendler (pictured) on the Holdem Manager blog titled "Leak Buster Video: Controlling Tilt in Poker."
Most of your strategic leaks can be plugged via software like Leak Buster, working hard at your game, and reviewing your play with peers and coaches.  What might be the most difficult aspect to combat is your tendency to make mistakes when something doesn't go as planned.  While some players are in full control of their emotions at all times, many are not, costing them big money on the felts.
Tendler is the author of the "Mental Game of Poker" and to many in the poker world is the authority on the mental aspect of the game.  While his book is helpful, it does cost money.  However, his video from Leak Buster is free for anyone to watch and may turn out to be the best half-hour you spend on your poker game.
The video starts off explaining what tilt is, how to recognize it, and what you can do about controlling all your emotions.  He points out that quitting is not an option if you are a serious poker player since if you aren't spending time playing you are costing yourself money.  I believe a good first step is recognizing when you are on tilt so you can at least get yourself in check.  It will take more practice to learn to play through it.
You may not realize that tilt may not only be a result of a bad beat, bad plays, or being outplayed by an inferior opponent.  Tendler points out in the video that tilt may not be the result of one event, but could be a result of your anger accumulating throughout a session or tournament, over the course of many days, or even a result of many years.
Tendler also points out that recognizing when you are tilting isn't controlling the problem.  While it is a great first step, if you do not know how to think about the root cause of the tilt, you will never be able to control it.
Near the end of the video, Tendler provides three common trouble spots.  While I suggest you watch the entire video, these three points summarize the problem very well:

1. Can't recognize early signs of tilt
2. Accumulated tilt instantly overwhelmed your mind
3. You don't understand the root cause of tilt

Spending a half-hour on this video could be a life-changing experience not only on the felts, but also in life in general since if you aren't in control over your anger, it could result in saying or doing things you regret later.  You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain by checking it out since it is absolutely free.  Watch the Leak Buster video "Controlling Tilt" today!  Also, visit Leak Buster's website for more details.
