Ah, the tilt. If a poker player states never to have looked down the barrel of an upcoming poker tilt – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been playing long enough. This doesn’t imply of course that every poker player has gone on tilt before, a few players have great control and carry their squanderings as a defeat and leave it at that.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential choice for a fresh bettor to begin tilting. They really just burned too much cash on one round that they should have won and they’re aggravated
