Ah, the tilt. If a poker enthusiast claims never to have stared faced over the shadow of an approaching poker tilt – they’re either lying or they haven’t been gambling long enough.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic choice for a brand-new gambler to begin tilting. They really just blew too much cash on one hand that they should have won and they’re angry
