Ah, the tilt. If a poker enthusiast claims at no time to have stared faced down the shadow of an approaching tilt – they’re either lying or they have not been gambling long enough.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well hold it right here. This is a classic choice for a new player to start tilting. They just lost too much cash on one round that they should have won and they are pissed
