Ah, the steam. If a poker enthusiast claims at no time to have peered down the barrel of an upcoming tilt – they are either lying or they haven’t been playing very long.

You have burned eighty dollars in a hand where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you decided to go all-in on the flop and held a 10 – 1 edge. And that guy! He sucked you out on the river? – Well stop right here. This is a classic choice for a new gambler to start tilting. They basically blew too much money on one round that they really should have won and they are agitated
