Ah, the tilt. If a poker gambler claims never to have stared faced over the barrel of an upcoming tilt – they are either lying or they have not been gambling long enough. This does not indicate of course that everyone has been on tilt before, a number of people have great willpower and carry their losses as a defeat and leave it at that. To be a powerful poker player, it is extremely critical to approach your wins and your defeats in the same way – with no emotion.

You have burned eighty dollars in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and enjoyed a ten to one advantage. And that fish! He bled you dry on the river? – Well hold it right here. This is a classic choice for a fresh gambler to start tilting. They really just lost too much $$$$ on one hand that they should have won and they are agitated
