In Advance of a Tilt

Ah, the tilt. If a poker player claims never to have peered over the shadow of an upcoming tilt – they’re either lying or they have not been betting long enough. This does not indicate obviously that everyone has been on steam before, a handful of players have great willpower and carry their losses as a loss and leave it at that. To be a great poker player, it’s very critical to appraise your wins and your losses in a similar way – with little emotion.

He banged you out on the river? – Well hold it right here. This is a classic choice for a fresh gambler to start tilting.
