Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler states at no time to have peered down the barrel of an approaching steam – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been playing for a long time. This does not mean obviously that everyone has gone on tilt in the past, a handful of people have awesome willpower and take their losses as a loss and leave it at that.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic opportunity for a fresh bettor to begin tilting. They basically blew too much $$$$ on one round that they should have won and they’re aggravated
