Ah, the tilt. If a poker player claims at no time to have stared faced over the shadow of a looming steam – they’re either lying or they have not been wagering very long. This does not indicate obviously that every player has gone on tilt before, a handful of players have excellent willpower and carry their losses as a defeat and keep it at that.
