Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker gambler claims at no time to have stared faced down the barrel of a looming tilt – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been gambling for a long time. This doesn’t indicate of course that every poker player has been on steam before, a few players have wonderful control and take their losses as a loss and leave it at that. To be a great poker player, it’s very critical to appraise your wins and your defeats in the same way – with no emotion.

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