Before you Tilt

[ English ]

Ah, the tilt. If a poker player states never to have peered down the barrel of a looming tilt – they’re either telling a lie or they have not been wagering very long.

He banged you out on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a classic choice for a brand-new gambler to begin tilting. They really just lost too much $$$$ on one hand that they really should have won and they’re pissed
