Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker player claims at no time to have stared faced over the barrel of a looming tilt – they are either lying or they have not been competing very long.

He banged you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a brand-new player to begin tilting. They really just burned too much cash on one round that they really should have won and they’re angry
