Ah, the tilt. If a poker player claims never to have looked over the barrel of an approaching tilt – they are either telling a lie or they have not been gambling for a long time. This does not indicate obviously that every player has gone on steam before, a few people have wonderful control and carry their squanderings as a loss and keep it at that.

He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a fresh player to start tilting. They just burned too much $$$$ on one round that they really should have won and they are agitated
