Just Before you Tilt

Ah, the tilt. If a poker gambler states at no time to have stared faced down the shadow of a looming steam – they are either telling a lie or they have not been betting for a long time. This does not mean of course that every player has gone on steam before, a handful of people have awesome willpower and take their losses as a defeat and leave it at that. To be a strong poker gambler, it is absolutely important to treat your wins and your defeats in the same way – with no emotion.

You have burned $80 in a hand where you were assured to pick up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and held a ten to one advantage. And that fish! He sucked you out on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a new gambler to begin tilting.
