Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker gambler claims never to have stared faced over the shadow of an upcoming tilt – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been wagering long enough. This does not imply of course that each and every one has gone on steam before, a few players have great willpower and carry their losses as a hit and keep it at that.
