Just Before you Tilt

Ah, the tilt. If a poker player claims at no time to have peered down the shadow of an upcoming tilt – they’re either lying or they haven’t been gambling very long. This doesn’t mean of course that every player has gone on tilt before, a few people have excellent willpower and take their squanderings as a loss and leave it at that.

You’ve burned eighty dollars in a round where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and had a 10 – 1 edge. And that fiend! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic opportunity for a new bettor to begin tilting. They really just blew too much money on one round that they should have won and they’re agitated
