Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler states at no time to have peered down the shadow of an approaching tilt – they’re either telling a lie or they haven’t been playing long enough. This does not imply of course that each and every one has gone on tilt in the past, a number of players have wonderful willpower and carry their squanderings as a loss and keep it at that.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic opportunity for a brand-new player to start tilting.
