Ah, the tilt. If a poker gambler claims never to have peered down the barrel of an approaching poker tilt – they are either lying or they haven’t been playing long enough.

He banged you out on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a classic opportunity for a brand-new bettor to start tilting. They basically lost too much money on one hand that they should have won and they are pissed
