Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker player claims at no time to have looked down the shadow of an approaching steam – they’re either telling a lie or they have not been gambling long enough. This doesn’t imply of course that every poker player has gone on tilt in the past, some people have great willpower and carry their losses as a loss and leave it at that.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic choice for a brand-new player to begin tilting. They basically burned too much money on one round that they really should have won and they’re angry
