In Advance of a Tilt

Ah, the poker tilt. If a poker enthusiast states never to have looked over the barrel of a looming poker tilt – they are either lying or they haven’t been betting very long. This does not imply of course that everyone has gone on steam in the past, a number of people have awesome control and carry their losses as a hit and leave it at that. To be a good poker gambler, it is absolutely critical to appraise your wins and your losses in a similar manner – with little emotion.
