Ah, the poker steam. If a poker player claims never to have peered over the shadow of a looming poker tilt – they’re either lying or they have not been playing for a long time. This doesn’t mean of course that every player has been on tilt in the past, some players have wonderful willpower and take their losses as a defeat and keep it at that. To be a powerful poker player, it is absolutely critical to approach your wins and your defeats in a similar way – with no emotion.

He banged you out on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a brand-new bettor to start tilting. They basically blew too much cash on one round that they should have won and they are pissed
