Ah, the tilt. If a poker gambler claims never to have peered over the shadow of a looming steam – they are either telling a lie or they have not been betting long enough. This does not infer of course that every poker player has been on steam before, a number of players have wonderful control and take their squanderings as a hit and leave it at that.
