Ah, the poker steam. If a poker enthusiast claims at no time to have stared faced down the barrel of a looming steam – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been betting for a long time. This does not indicate of course that every player has been on tilt before, a handful of people have great control and carry their losses as a hit and keep it at that.
