Ah, the tilt. If a poker enthusiast states never to have peered down the barrel of an approaching poker tilt – they’re either lying or they have not been betting very long.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well hold it right here. This is a classic opportunity for a new player to begin tilting. They really just burned too much cash on one hand that they really should have won and they are aggravated
